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 was improved.

* 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.
