These things tend to happen when I’m travelling and don’t check my feeds for an entire day. I can’t say this is a huge surprise since it’s very sensible. I’m happy to finally have some tangible news from the team. I’ll be happy to share this news in my Entity Framework workshop tomorrow! During the conference I actually had someone suggest that they still didn’t believe that EF wouldn’t go the way of Object Spaces. Sheesh!
It’s settled! The Entity Framework (and the Entity Designer) along with ADO.NET Data Services will RTM as part of the Visual Studio 2008 and .NET 3.5 SP1 releases!
Unfortunately, we don’t have official release dates at this point, but stay tuned. You’ll also want to keep an eye out for the upcoming SP1 Beta 1, which will be your next chance to check out updated bits for both of these products.
