I'm back from my vacation!

Hi, all!

I just returned from my trip to visit my grandfather and other related. It was very, very enjoyable and I could get some rest and meet great people! I took a lot of pictures with my digital camera ( in fact, I took more pictures this time than ever in my whole life! ) I shall post some here later.

About development activities, I will be returning to Npgsql project and start to integrate many patches which are pending. Josh Cooley did the excellent job with Npgsql2 beta2 release so you can enjoy some of the newest features we implemented lately. Stay tuned for more features and improvements!! I'd like to thank Daniel Nauck for his asp.net providers implementation which are also available for download. Thank you, Daniel!

That's all, folks. I will keep you informed as soon as I get more news.

Going out on vacation for 2-3 weeks

Hi, all!

On this end of year, I'm going visit my grandfather. So, I will be out
for 2 or three weeks starting on this wednesday (2007-12-12). But don't worry, Npgsql will be in excellent hands: Josh Cooley will be heading any new beta release (which we expect to be released soon) and all patches and reviews needed.
I don't know if there will be Internet connection where I'm going to, but if there is, I will let you know.

Thanks everybody and Merry Christmas!!

We are working on this support and, as announced, we will have support for entity framework whithin 3 months of RTM.
