Dear users,

Devart is glad to announce the release of dotConnect for PostgreSQL 7.12, 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 PostgreSQL 11 and Entity Framework Core 2.2.1.

Now you can connect to PostgreSQL 11 with our product and use its new features, such as partitioning of data by a hash key, JIT compilation of expressions in WHERE clauses, etc. Besides, dotConnect for PostgreSQL fully supports PostgreSQL 11 stored procedures. Please note that executing stored procedures in dotConnect for PostgreSQL has some peculiarities in comparison to stored functions. See the Stored Procedure Support article in dotConnect for PostgreSQL documentation for more details.

Here is the complete list of dotConnect for PostgreSQL 7.12.1307 features:
  • PostgreSQL 11 is supported
  • The bug with connecting to database with .NET Standard 1.3 compatible assemblies on .NET Framework 4.6.0 run-time is fixed
LinqConnect (formerly known as LINQ to PostgreSQL)
  • The new overload DataContext.Refresh(bool ignoreErrors, RefreshMode mode, object entity) is added for ignoring errors during refresh
  • The existing overload DataContext.Refresh(RefreshMode mode, object entity) is improved: its check avoids the try to refresh the entity that is added to the context but not submitted to the database
  • The type and text of the error generated by the DataContext.Refresh(RefreshMode mode, object entity) method, when the passed entity doesn't exist in database, is fixed
Entity Developer
  • The multiple select functionality in EF Core Model is improved: now it allows setting PrimaryKey, ValueGenerated, Concurrency for several properties simultaneously
  • The bug with detecting order of columns in composite primary key with two or more columns by Update To Database and by Update From Database wizards in EF Core is fixed
  • The bug with using ASP.NET Core Web Application (.NET Framework) and Azure Functions v1 (.NET Framework) projects in Visual Studio 2017 is fixed
Entity Framework support
  • Entity Framework Core 2.2.1 is supported
  • The new extension method Database.IsPostgreSql() in EF Core 2 is implemented
  • The bug with applying config.Workarounds.IgnoreSchemaName=true to the .ToTable() functionality in EF Core 2 is fixed
  • The bugs with using the GuidToStringConverter, EnumToStringConverter, ValueConverter classes in EF Core 2 are fixed
  • The bug with constructing the LIKE clause in EF Core 2 is fixed
  • The bug with generating a subselect within the SELECT list in EF Core 2 is fixed
  • The bug with applying an aggregate function to the result of a subselect in EF Core 2 is fixed
