Coming soon to LINQ to SQL

LINQ to SQL went gold a few months ago with the release of Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5. It has been somewhat quiet since then – and as we near the launch of Visual Studio 2008, you may be wondering what we have been up to.


Things aren’t so quiet over here on our end, even if it looks that way. The team has been busy adding features so that you will have better support for SQL Server 2008 in the future. Things we’ve been working on include support for new T-SQL data types that are being introduced in SQL Server 2008 – namely DATE, TIME, DATETIME2 and DATETIMEOFFSET, so that you can enjoy the same rich LINQ support and CUD support over data that uses many of the new types that are being introduced in SQL Server 2008.


Watch this blog for more on this as we get closer to releasing some of this functionality!
