Q2 2013 Roadmap
OpenAccess ORM Q2 2013 is scheduled for June. Check out the list of new features that will come to your account with the next version:
Batch Update/Delete Operations
Execute single Delete and Update statements to change multiple rows using a Linq based API! With Q2 2013, you will be able to combine Delete and Update statements instead of executing single statements per entity.
Complete Schema Migration
Your workflow in Model First and Round-Trip scenarios will be easier than ever with the completion of the Schema Migration functionality, allowing you to clean up the obsolete database artifacts as a part of the schema migration process. As you requested, this new functionality will be made available both in Fluent Mapping API by introducing additional Drop() methods that will be called during runtime and in Visual Designer via the Update Database from Model wizard.
Custom Code Generation Options
In Q2 2013 you will be able to switch on the generation of INotifyPriopertyChanged calls in the code generation with a single checkbox. In addition, you will have an easier access to Data Annotations and we will introduce out-of-the-box support for IDataErrorInfo providing custom error information for the user interface to bind to. Finally, you will be able to customize the entire code generation templates set much more easily, since we will optimize the structure of the T4 templates and provide additional guidance for it.
Our release plans have been always synced with your needs. All improvements and new functionalities planned for the release are coming in direct response to customer feedback.
We welcome all of your feedback and suggestions:
