Npgsql 2.1.0 released!

After a long time, Npgsql 2.1.0 is finally released! 

If you have been following my posts about Npgsql 2.1 beta and rc releases, you know we did a lot of changes since our last stable release.

The change log for this version is big. You can find a complete list of what has changed and the bugs fixed in the github project release page. It has a lot of information about the changes we made since our last stable 2.0.14 release. You should check it out to see what changed and what new features you will get when you use 2.1.

Developers using Npgsql 2.1 and Entity Framework should pay attention to the changes related to new configuration settings. More information about those changes can be checked here.

Downloads are available on Nuget, github. pgfoundry downloads will be made available soon.

Finally, I'd like to thank some people who did an incredible job and that without them this release wouldn't be possible!

Glen Parker has been working in the optimizations tasks since his first git commit. From the changelog you can see his tireless work regarding each part of Npgsql which could be optimized. Thank you very much for your contributions, Glen!

Shay Rojansky has been helping as the mastermind of the project restructuring support. He contributed a lot of changes which made our lives working with Npgsql much better. Thanks to him we can compile Npgsql for different .net platform versions easily. He also got TeamCity build server working as well as github integration. He helped us to get EntityFramework pre-6 and pos-6 verions easily integrated.
Thank you, Shay!

And Dave Page who helped us with the server where the TeamCity is installed. Without his help, I'm sure our TeamCity installation would be much more difficult. Thank you, Dave!
