The Astoria (aka ADO.NET Data Services) team released an updated .NET 3.5 SP1 version of Astoria the other day. There are tons of great new features like projections and my favorite, an inline row count. As I said on my blog yesterday, you have to alert Astoria that you want to use the new V2 features, by default Astoria 2.0 runs in Astoria 1.0 mode. (For backwards compatibility.)
Telerik has enhanced the Data Services Wizard to support Astoria 2.0 (officially the “Data Services update for .NET 3.5 SP1” but I digress….)
Now if you have the updated Data Services DLLs on your machine, you will have the option to create a service using V1 or V2. If you choose V2, we will automatically set the MaxProtocolVersion property to V2 for you.
Happy Data Servicing!
