New Versions of dotConnect Data Providers with Advanced LINQ Technology Released!
May 21, 2010
Devart is glad to announce the release of the new versions of ADO.NET data providers,
enhanced database connectivity solutions built over ADO.NET architecture that offer
Entity Framework and LINQ to SQL support. New dotConnect ADO.NET Providers offer
advanced LinqConnect ORM solution (formerly known as Devart LINQ support) closely
compatible with Microsoft LINQ to SQL and having its own advanced features.
Devart LINQ to SQL support technology was greatly enchanced and renamed to Devart
LinqConnect. Complex types were supported for more precise presentation of the denormalized
table structure and for returning specific types from stored procedures and functions.
Support for different configurable algorithms for primary key generation was added.
LINQ performance was greatly improved. CompiledQueryCache class now allows you to
manage automatic caching of compiled LINQ queries.
Password salt was supported in ASP.NET membership providers, and Upgrade wizard
* dotConnect Universal does not support LinqConnect and Entity Framework.
If you wish to provide feedback on the new versions, you can do it in our forums or with contact form.
There is also a feedback form in the support zone of every product. We are always
glad to hear your comments and take into account your development needs.
