Yes, though I would recommend that you use the latest pre-release (we
use[1] it ourselves with VS 15):

This is the timeframe (i.e., early next year) we are aiming for but it
may take longer.

The vcpkg package of libodb-sqlite was not done by us (in fact, this
is the first time I am hearing about it) so can't say anything about

Both will be (in fact, already are[2]) packaged for bpkg. And
libodb-mysql will be usable with both MySQL and MariaDB client
libraries (and even on Windows).
