New features in the Entity Framework support!

Post by Devart » Wed 23 May 2012 07:54

Dear users,

We are glad to announce the new features that are available in the Entity Framework support in the latest version:
  • Entity Framework 5.0 Release Candidate is supported (Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite)
  • The support of fractional seconds for TIMESTAMP, TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE, and TIMESTAMP WITH LOCAL TIME ZONE in Entity Data Model Wizard/Generate Database Wizard and Code-First CreateDatabase functionality is added (Oracle)
  • The support of fractional seconds for TIME, DATETIME and TIMESTAMP in Entity Data Model Wizard/Generate Database Wizard and Code-First CreateDatabase functionality is added (MySQL)
  • The support for Ticks-based DateTime columns is added (SQLite)
  • The behaviour is changed: by default in Model-First and Code-First approaches the DateTime property is not TIMESTAMP anymore, but TIMESTAMP(7), and the DateTimeOffset property is TIMESTAMP(7) WITH TIME ZONE (Oracle)
  • The behaviour is changed: the Money data type is mapped to System.Decimal by default now when using Entity Data Model Wizard/Generate Database Wizard and Code-First CreateDatabase functionality (PostgreSQL)
  • The bug with fractional seconds during SQL generation of DateTime and DateTimeOffset constant literal is fixed (Oracle)
  • The bug with stored procedure Out/InOut numeric parameters is fixed (Oracle)
  • The bug with incorrect XMLTYPE null value generation is fixed (Oracle)
  • The bug with creating MigrationHistory table (EF v4.3 and v5.0) when using protocol 3.0 is fixed (PostgreSQL)
  • The bug with fractional seconds rounding in INSERT command is fixed (SQLite)
