dotConnect for PostgreSQL 7.15 is released!

Post by Devart » Thu 24 Oct 2019 15:56

Dear users,

Devart is glad to announce the release of dotConnect for PostgreSQL 7.15, Devart ADO.NET data provider for PostgreSQL with support for Entity Framework, LinqConnect (LINQ to PostgreSQL) and NHibernate. The new version offers you support for Entity Framework Core 3. Besides, dotConnect for PostgreSQL now supports PostgreSQL 12.

Now you can use dotConnect for PostgreSQL in projects, powered by the latest Entity Framework Core version and enjoy the improved performance, better SQL generation and other Entity Framework Core 3.0 features. Build your Entity Framework Core models from databases using Scaffold-DbContext command with our providers, type mapping code yourself, or use Entity Developer to design models visually – every approach is supported.

Besides Entity Framework Core 3 support, we have improved support for Entity Framework 6.3 on .NET Core 3. Two new properties have been added to the DbContext template, providing better configurability for Entity Framework Core code generation. The Configuration Type Name property specifies the descendant of DbConfiguration class that should be used for code-based configuration, and the Use DbConfigurationType Attribute property determines whether to register this configuration type via the DbConfigurationType attribute.

You can find more details in our blog article.

Here is the complete list of dotConnect for PostgreSQL 7.15.1499 features:
  • PostgreSQL 12 is supported
  • The "Optimize rendering for screens with different pixel densities" feature of Visual Studio 2019 is supported by Devart DataSet Manager
  • The bug with inserting data into GEOMETRY columns is fixed
  • The bug with updating TEXT columns in UTF8 databases is fixed
Entity Developer
  • The DbContext template is improved for using Entity Framework 6.3:

    • The DbProviderFactories.RegisterFactory method is generated when UseDbConfigurationTypeAttribute=true and ConfigurationTypeName='%Default%'
    • With UseDbConfigurationTypeAttribute=false, the static constructor for registering factory and the new partial method OnStaticConfigured are generated
