Dear users,

Devart is glad to announce the release of the new version of dotConnect for PostgreSQL, enhanced database connectivity solution, built over the ADO.NET architecture, that supports Entity Framework and LinqConnect ORM solutions.

New version of dotConnect for PostgreSQL offers you support for Entity Framework Spatials and SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services support.

Entity Framework Spatials Support

dotConnect for PostgreSQL 6.7 introduces Entity Framework Spatials support for Entity Framework 5 and 6. dotConnect for PostgreSQL supports the following spatial services:

  • NetTopologySuite spatial service
  • Well-Known Text (WKT) spatial service
  • Extended Well-Known Text (EWKT) spatial service
  • Well-Known Binary (WKB) spatial service

NetTopologySuite spatial service provides the richest functionality out-of-the-box. Other spatial services can be used together with user/3rd-party GIS libraries if you implement the interaction between them.

You can read more about new features of Entity Framework Spatials support in our Enhanced Entity Framework Spatials support for Oracle, MySQL and PostgreSQL blog article.

SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services Support

New version of dotConnect for PostgreSQL now can be used in Reporting Services projects for the latest version of SQL Server. Now our users can benefit from Power View in Microsoft Excel 2013 and Power View in Microsoft SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint 2010 integration, data alerts and other new SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services features.
