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 dotConnect for PostgreSQL offers you support for Visual Studio 2012 and Entity Framework 5.

Here is the complete list of dotConnect for PostgreSQL 6.2.77 features:
  • Visual Studio 2012 is supported
LinqConnect (formerly known as LINQ to PostgreSQL)
  • The bug with getting entities from the cache by keys of type Int16 is fixed
  • The bug with getting entities directly from the cache for the command First (predicate) etc, is fixed
  • The bug with wrong parameters when loading dependent entities with two-level LoadOptions are set is fixed
Entity Developer
  • Support for ADO.NET Entity Framework 5 is added
  • The 'Entity Base' class property, which allows specifying the ancestor class/interface for a particular entity type, is implemented (LinqConnect models)
  • The behaviour is changed: only particular (not all) property characteristics are regenerated when using Update Model From Database wizard after the metadata of the corresponding column have been changed (LinqConnect models)
Entity Framework support
  • ADO.NET Entity Framework 5 is supported
  • The behaviour is changed: Devart.Data.PostgreSql.Entity.Migrations.dll is built with the 4.4 version of EntityFramework.dll now
  • The bug with using command delimiters when generating the Code-First Migrations script in Package Manager Console of Visual Studio is fixed
