Dear users,

Devart is glad to announce the release of dotConnect for PostgreSQL 7.14, 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 Entity Framework 6.3 Preview 9 and .NET Core 3 Preview 9.

dotConnect for PostgreSQL .NET Standard 2.0 compatible assemblies are completely compatible with .NET Core 3, and we offer a new Devart.Data.PostgreSql.EF6 NuGet package with a .NET Standard 2.1 assembly, allowing use of dotConnect for PostgreSQL on .NET Core 3 in projects, using Entity Framework 6.3.

Entity Developer also fully supports Entity Framework 6.3 and allows you to add Devart Entity Models to projects, targeting .NET Core 3.

Besides, when installing dotConnect for PostgreSQL, you can integrate it into release and preview versions of Visual Studio 2019 (even into both simultaneously).

You can find more details in our blog article.
