Client drivers

New features for client drivers.

OAuth support for ADO.NET

You can now use OAuth to connect to Vertica with ADO.NET.

The ADO.NET driver uses a simplified configuration scheme and takes a single connection property: an access token retrieved by the client from the identity provider. Other flows like token refresh should be handled externally by the driver.

The JDBC and ODBC drivers will follow a similar configuration scheme in future versions.
