I've released the new development version of OpenDBX (1.1.0) to the public a 
few minutes ago. The freetds backend in combination with the lib from 
freetds.org will enable you to connect to your MSSQL servers.

Up to now I was able to test the freetds backend only against a Sybase ASE 
server (SQL Server is a descendant from an former version), so SQL Server 
should also work as well but there is no guarantee yet.

If you want to give it a try I will help you getting it to run smoothly.
