Dear users,

New build of dotConnect for Oracle 6.00.86 is available for download now.
It includes:
  • Implemented the OracleLob.NullNClob property returning an empty OracleLob of the NClob type
  • Implemented possibility of changing the OracleLob.Cached property to disable buffering entire LOB into the memory
  • Supported connection in Direct mode with service name as an alternative to using database instance name (SID and Service Name connection string parameters have different meanings now)
  • Added ServiceName property to OracleConnectionStringBuilder class
  • Added Statement Cache Size connection string parameter and OracleConnectionStringBuilder.StatementCacheSize property
  • Added advanced connection string parameters to the connection dialogs of Object and Package wizards
  • Added the TryParse method to the classes and structures representing native Oracle data types
  • The OracleLob.Null property declared deprecated; it was left for the reason of compatibility with the System.Data.OracleClient data provider
  • Changed behaviour in OracleClient compatibility mode: it is no longer allowed to create update and delete commands via OracleCommandBuilder for a result set with no primary key
  • Changed behaviour in OracleClient compatibility mode: the colon is no longer removed from OracleParameter.ParameterName
  • Changed behaviour: setting the DbDataTable.Connection property sets the InsertCommand.Connection, UpdateCommand.Connection, and DeleteCommand.Connection properties
  • Changed default value of OracleCommand.Cached to true
  • Fixed bug with incorrect case of data sources shown in the DataLink.DataSource property when using the Interform technology
  • Fixed bug with inserting records to database after distributed transaction timeout is over
  • Fixed bug with caching commands in Direct mode
  • Fixed bug with FOR UPDATE clause in SELECT statement
LinqConnect (formerly known as LINQ to Oracle)
  • Fixed bug with incorrect detaching entities in the master/detail association
  • Fixed bug with VB code generation for models with Unidirectional serialization
  • Fixed bug with creating DataContext using external mapping
  • Fixed bug with using the Convert.ToDateTime function with Greek culture info in LINQ queries
Entity Developer
  • Fixed bug with many-to-many and Update From Database Wizard
Entity Framework support
  • Added support for Entity Framework CTP 5
  • Improved DatabaseExists functionality
