Bobby Diaz is still producing some amazing stuff. The new addition is native support for SQL functions. Take a look at this code:

DateTime date = new DateTime(1960, 1, 1);

var query = ( from e in db.Employees
                   where db.Methods.Year(e.BirthDate) >= date.Year && db.Methods.Len(e.FirstName) > 4
                   select e.FirstName )
new StringBuilder(), (sb, name) => sb.Length > 0 ? sb.Append(", ").Append(name) : sb.Append(name));

Console.WriteLine("Birthdays after {0}:", date.ToString("yyyy"));

Check out Bobby's post for the full details. I am going to write a full overview of the current state of Linq for NHibernate soon. The situation so far is looking very nice.

Bobby Diaz has implemented orderring and paging support for Linq to NHibernate, so this works:

(from c in nwnd.Customers select c.CustomerID)

As well as this:

var query = from c in nwnd.Customers
   where c.Country == "Belgium"
   orderby c.Country descending, c.City descending
   select c.City;

Thanks again, Bobby, and the new code is on SVN.
