dotConnect for PostgreSQL 4.95 is released!

Post by Shalex » Fri 21 May 2010 13:05

Dear users,

Devart is glad to announce the release of the new version of dotConnect for PostgreSQL, enhanced database connectivity solution built over ADO.NET architecture that offers Entity Framework and LINQ to SQL support. New dotConnect for PostgreSQL offers advanced LinqConnect ORM solution (formerly known as Devart LINQ support) closely compatible with Microsoft LINQ to SQL and having its own advanced features.

Devart LINQ to SQL support technology was greatly enchanced and renamed to Devart LinqConnect. Complex types were supported for more precise presentation of the denormalized table structure and for returning specific types from stored procedures and functions. Support for different configurable algorithms for primary key generation was added. LINQ performance was greatly improved. CompiledQueryCache class now allows you to manage automatic caching of compiled LINQ queries.
