Is there a way to make new versions of the gem (compatible with rails 5) also compatible with an old sql server? We're rewriting an ancient application on rails 5 and would like to have both versions running in parallel during development. The old application runs off of a 2005 MSSQL Server, while our newer sql db is 2012. We are eventually planning on migrating everything to the new DB, but the old app is rails 2 and can't connect to SQL Server 2012. We'd like to avoid migrating both the sql server and the rails app at the same time if we can avoid it

I am digging through the changes between 5.1 & 5.2 and i have started to compile a list of changes just trying to get the tests to run, I am not sure opening issues is the best since these are pretty basic, i.e. removed files from ActiveRecord or Arel that are referenced.
