This issue will be solved at the earliest possible date. Currently you should proceed with the following steps (for this issue to be resolved):

1. Open the new project

2. Fill in the 'Server' field (Make sure that server is available);

3. Specify the 'Server port' (if non-default port applies)

4. Switch the 'Authentication' field from 'Windows Authentication' value to "SQL Server Authentication" value;

5. Switch the 'Authentication' field from '"SQL Server Authentication' value to "Windows Authentication" value;

6. Perform the test connection.

This issue will not be reproduced after the first successful connection.
