New features in the Entity Framework support!

Post by Devart » Mon 30 Oct 2017 15:40

Dear users,

We are glad to announce the new features that are available in the Entity Framework support in the latest version. The new versions of our providers and Entity Developer support Entity Framework Core 2.0. Now you can design both Entity Framework Core 1.1 and 2.0 models. In Entity Framework Core 2.0 models you can use complex types for entity properties, Entity Framework Core 2.0 native mapping for database scalar functions, table splitting, generate self-contained type configuration code, etc.

Additionally, the new version of Entity Developer now supports executing LINQ queries against the model and retrieving data when working with projects, targeting .NET Core or .NET Standard.

Full list of features:
  • Entity Framework Core 1.1.3 is supported
  • Entity Framework Core 2.0 is supported
  • The bug with comparing NCLOB/CLOB columns in WHERE clauses of the UPDATE/DELETE commands when translating EF Core queries is fixed (Oracle)
  • The macaddr8 data type introduced in PostgreSQL 10 is supported
