Entity Framework Feature CTP 3 Now Available

Today we are releasing Entity Framework Feature CTP 3.

This updated preview addresses compatibility with Visual Studio 2010 RC for Code First (the new name for Code Only) so that users can continue to work with our code-based metadata generation feature alongside the RC.

Other changes include:

  • Self Tracking Entities templates are no longer in this CTP as they are included with Visual Studio 2010 RC
  • Code First now exposes cascading delete functionality implicitly through some conventions and explicitly via the WillCascadeOnDelete API

Going forward we have many new additions and changes planned for Code First including a revised navigation API and improved conventions that we intend to share in future CTPs as features are ready.
