Entity Framework Feature CTP5 Released
Yesterday, ADO.Net team released the EF feature CTP5. The feature CTP contains new features for Entity Framework that are planed to be shipped as a stand alone package in the first quarter of 2011. The main feature in the package is Code First which allows you to define your model using C# or VB.Net classes only. This approach will be added to the previous EF approaches: Model First and Database First to form a better framework for common data access development scenarios. Other features are the lightweight DbContext and DbSets objects, T4 template for generating DbContext and DbSets, Fluent API for Code First that can be used for further configurating of a model and more.
