dotConnect for PostgreSQL 7.3 is released!

Post by Devart » Thu 06 Mar 2014 14:03

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 ASP.NET Identity technology.

Now, with dotConnect for PostgreSQL, you can use the latest ASP.NET user account management system and benefit from unit-testable user authentication system, social login support, OWIN integration, and other new ASP.NET Identity new features.

With dotConnect for PostgreSQL you can easily add an implementation of Identity system via ADO.NET or Entity Framework technologies to your applications. The documentation of our provider includes detailed tutorials on how to either use standard ASP.NET Identity functionality or how to customize it for storing additional data about users.

Here is the complete list of dotConnect for PostgreSQL 7.3.115 features:
  • The ADO.NET implementation of ASP.NET Identity support is added
  • The message of the exception, when an attempt to rollback a closed transaction is made, is improved
  • The behaviour is changed: if PgSqlTransaction has been already assigned to the PgSqlConnection object, all subsequent calls of the BeginTransaction method on the same PgSqlConnection object will return an existing PgSqlTransaction instance
  • The bug with using non-default schema when creating the provisioning objects for Sync Framework support is fixed
  • The bug with loading workflows with content based correlation handle, once they have unloaded to the database, in response to a WCF message is fixed
LinqConnect (formerly known as LINQ to PostgreSQL)
  • The CommandTimeout property is added to the DataProvider class
  • The bug related to the invalid generation of the foreign keys DDL for many-to-many associations when using CreateDatabase method is fixed
  • The bug related to the "Cannot use "timestamp(6)" type value in "DateTimeOffset" type argument" error is fixed
  • The bug with the query cache when performing several queries, having nullable parameters, sequentially is fixed
Entity Developer
  • The information message about availability of NuGet Package Manager on the workstation is added in the Entity Developer version integrated into Visual Studio (Entity Framework models)
  • The behaviour is changed: now paths to assemblies with attributes (Model Settings -> Model -> Attributes) are saved and used as relative paths
  • The bug with invalid code generation when different namespaces for context and entity classes are used in the VB.NET projects is fixed (LinqConnect models)
  • The bug with generating the entities namespace in fluent mapping configuration classes is fixed (Entity Framework models)
  • The bug with generating DatabaseGeneratedOption.Computed for non-EntityKey properties in fluent mapping is fixed (Entity Framework models)
Entity Framework support
  • SharpMap 1.1 is supported
  • NTS Topology Suite 1.13.2 is supported
