Nightly news, 17 December 2010

Sorry to disappoint everybody, but this week’s crop of fixes and enhancements are a HotPink-free zone. Here’s what’s new in the current nightly builds.

LightSpeed

  • You can now specify the MultiSequence identity method at the entity level using the designer. Though you probably shouldn’t.
  • Fix for field converters not being respected in LINQ projections.
  • Hated on our obfuscator (okay, it’s not a fix or enhancement, but it was something that had to be done).
  • Fix for a problem loading the SQL Server CE 4 beta provider in the Cassini Web server.
  • Fix for a potential race condition when using multiple identity methods.
  • Fix for transient columns being generated into ‘drop’ migrations.
  • Fixed a problem where collections might sometimes not update when an entity was reparented using the foreign key.
  • Added a (kludgy) way for migrations developers to customise the behaviour of migration APIs

WPF Elements

  • Added an event that a control in the drop-down part of a DropDownEditBox can raise to close the drop-down.
  • Added a simple drop-down tree view control.

Silverlight Elements

  • When sampling a very large data set for display, chart controls now consider extreme values rather than just the value at the sampled index.

You can get the latest nightlies from the downloads page (free) or the store (full).

    Is this the obfuscator change that will make Lightspeed usable with Mono 2.8 ?

  • No, this was just general unproductive hating (let’s just say that Mono isn’t the only thing our obfuscator makes a complete pig’s ear of). We haven’t yet changed over to a new obfuscator, but hopefully soon!
