New Devart dotConnect Providers Offer Rich Improvements for Entity Framework Core

  • Spatial Data Support for EF Core. dotConnect providers for MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, and SQLite can now work with Spatial data in Entity Framework Core. This functionality is implemented in the new assembly, available for Full .NET Framework via the product installer, and for .NET Standard project — as a separate NuGet package. For SQLite, this support is provided via the SpatiaLite SQLite extension. More detailed information can be found at https://blog.devart.com/entity-framework-core-spatials-support-in-dotconnect-ado-net-providers.html
  • Full-Text Search and Database-specific Functions Support for EF Core. Classes for using database-specific functions in LINQ to Entities that were previously supported for Entity Framework v4 — v6, are now supported for Entity Framework Core. Additionally, dotConnect providers now support a full-text search for Entity Framework Core.
  • Monitoring Improvements. All dotConnect providers allow monitoring their work via the free dbMonitor application and their descendants of DbMonitor class.The new versions allow configuring DbMonitor in more details and significantly decrease performance loss from monitoring. Users can now determine which events they want to monitor and disable receiving call stacks for the events.
