Probably no need to mention that VS2008 RTM (Team Suite English) hit MSDN subscriber downloads this morning. But what about Entity Framework?
We’re working hard to wrap up the last round of testing and bug fixes on the EF and the EF designer. The plan is to release beta 3 of the EF/CTP 2 of the designer in a few weeks (think “early December”).
One major thing to look forward to is a simplification of getting graphs across tiers and handling the state of objects and their navigation properties (e.g. children in a graph). More details in this blog post.
Not sure what will be in the Tools CTP2, but I know they are working on having the designer handle stored procs and updating an EDM if the store has changed.
