Post by Shalex » Wed 31 Mar 2010 16:43

Dear users,

Devart is glad to announce the release of Entity Developer 2.80 with support for Entity Framework 4.0 Release Candidate and complete Visual Studio integration.

Entity Developer 2.80 seamlessly integrates with Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2010 Release Candidate. Now LINQ to SQL and Entity Framework models can be edited with Entity Developer inside the Visual Studio without the need to open the model in a separate application.

Now you can use Entity Developer for creating models for both Entity Framework 1 and Entity Framework 4 Release Candidate. For example, such feature as Lazy Loading is now supported for Entity Framework 4 Release Candidate models.

Method Editor was greatly improved. Now it allows creating multi-result set methods.

You are welcome to download and evaluate the new version here.

  • Support for ADO.NET Entity Framework 4 Release Candidate added
