New features in the Entity Framework support!

Post by Devart » Thu 18 Apr 2013 13:32

Dear users,

We are glad to announce the new features that are available in the Entity Framework support in the latest version:
  • The config.CodeFirstOptions.TruncateLongDefaultNames configuration option (default value is False) is added to provide the possibility of truncating long default names of indexes, primary keys, and foreign keys generated by Code-First Migrations (MySQL)
  • The validation of the identifier name length in Code-First Migrations is implemented (MySQL)
  • The datetimeoffset pseudo type of SSDL, which corresponds to System.DateTimeOffset, is implemented (PostgreSQL)
  • The error messages about long identifiers when using CreateDatabase/DropDatabase are improved (MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL)
  • The bug with SQL generation for the HasValue property of the Nullable variable in LINQ to Entities queries is fixed (PostgreSQL)
  • The bug with a workability of config.QueryOptions.CaseInsensitiveLike is fixed (PostgreSQL)
