time to read 2 min | 265 words

Yesterday the beta for NHibernate 1.2 was released, the new features that interests me are:

  • Native generics (you no longer have to use the NHibernate.Generics compatability library).
  • Batching support (SQL Server only) - huge perforamance increase in some scenarios.
  • Support for using Stored Procedures.
  • Support for named connection strings.
  • SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2005 Everywhere dialects
  • Parametrized types and User Collection Types - for the really advanced scenarios :-)
  • Support for projections in criteria queries - This one looks especially interesting
  • IL-based reflection optimizer - another big performance boost.

You can get the new beta release here, and the full release notes are here.
