Today we are pleased to announce the availability of EF6.1.2. This patch release includes a number of high priority bug fixes and some contributions from our community.
What’s in EF6.1.2?
EF6.1.2 is mostly about bug fixes, you can see a list of the fixes included in EF6.1.2 on our CodePlex site.
We also accepted a couple of noteworthy changes from members of the community:
- Query cache parameters can be configured from the app/web.configuration file
<queryCache size='1000' cleaningIntervalInSeconds='-1'/>
SqlFile and SqlResource methods on DbMigration allow you to run a SQL script stored as a file or embedded resource.
Where do I get EF6.1.2?
The tooling is available on the Microsoft Download Center. You only need to install the tooling if you want to create models using the EF Designer, or generate a Code First model from an existing database.
- Download tooling for Visual Studio 2012
- Download tooling for Visual Studio 2013
- The tooling will be included in future releases of Visual Studio 2015 (currently in preview).
