|Entity Framework 5.0 Brings Better Performance, New Features|
|Friday, 28 September 2012|
The Entity Framework (EF) 5.0, the latest version of Microsoft's object-relational mapping (ORM) system, was released in Aug. 2012. The upgrade provides performance improvements and feature enhancements to the Framework and its designer tool based on Visual Studio (VS). The new version gives developers more flexible coding capabilities when using the EF and could help them build more responsive applications and improve the performance of existing applications without changing code. However, some of the enhancements require the .NET Framework 4.5, which in turn requires an upgrade to VS 2012.
