Does Mendix support Azure SQL Database?

We are working with Mendix 7 and want to deploy an application to Azure, using Pivotal Cloud Foundry.  For datastore we want to use Azure SQL Database.  The documentation ( does not specifically mention this database, but is toes mention SQL Server and higher. Both MS SQL environments resemble a lot, but have distinct differences as discussed here (  My queston is: Is Azure SQL database currently supported, and if not, what is estimated timeframe it will be?
