Frans released a new major version of his [LGP] ORM. Basically, a top notch ORM product got even better. Make sure you check the what's new list - and if you are looking for an (better) ORM, don't hesitate to give it a try, you won't regret it.
The only feature I miss is LINQ support which is supposed to appear in the next version. Actually, including LINQ support isn't that useful right now as Visual Studio 2008 aka Orcas isn't supposed to ship until very late 2007/beginning of 2008. Frans is actually wise to wait a little bit more with LINQ and instead concentrate on actual improvements which help developers right now. That said I am really waiting to see LINQ for [LGP] when VS 2008 gets released. I suspect LINQ will make [LGP] (and any other ORM product out there) code much much more readable that it is now (limited by current .net languages).
Keep up the excellent work, Frans.
