A new CodeFluent Entities version (646) has been released and is publicly available!
You can download it from here: CodeFluent Entities Download Page.
Enhanced Visual Studio 11 Beta integration
Remember the “CodeFluent Entities & Visual Studio 11 Beta” post? Well we kept our word and corrected the glitches
SQL Server 2012 is supported by the SQL Server Producer
More details in this post: Added SQL Server 2012 Support
Enumeration declarations now support named values
You can now do stuff with multi-valued enumerations such as (supported separators are , ; | and +):
<cf:enumeration name="WeekDays" multivalue="true" >
<WeekDays value="Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday" />
Project Level “Implements” and “Set Implements” rules
You can define “Implements” and “Set Implements” rules at project level so all generated classes implement a specific interface or derive from a specific class (http://forums.softfluent.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=395).
Transaction rules can now be added on methods other than Save and Delete, including custom ones. Developers don’t have to write the TransactionScope code themselves when adding a new custom method: all it takes is selecting your method and add a transaction rule on it
The Modeler now supports Aspect assemblies
You’ll be glad to know that the Modeler now fully supports .NET assemblies including assemblies containing multiple aspects (e.g. Contoso.Aspects.dll). In such cases it displays available aspects in the assembly and lets you select the one you want to use in your current CodeFluent Entities project.
Some other miscellaneous things were also added/fixed/enhanced such as the enhancing TFS integration or adding support for the CTRL+A keyboard shortcut in the method body editor was added.
We would love to hear your feedbacks, don’t hesitate to share your feedbacks on our forums or by commenting this post!
Microsoft released the Visual Studio 11 Beta yesterday (February 29th) which means that we can all get a taste of the next VS version.
By the way here’s a link to try it out yourself if you haven’t done it already:
Furthermore, I’m happy to announce that already existing CodeFluent Entities builds such as the 645 install and run on VS 11 Beta: no changes or hacks needed, and no need to wait for the next build to start playing around!!
There are still a few glitches here and there but don’t worry we’re working on those and we’ll fix those in future builds
By the way, although not many, we’re not the only ones supporting Visual Studio 11 beta and you can find a list of available VS11 beta extensions on component source’s dedicated web site: http://dev11.componentsource.com/extend/develop.
Obviously CodeFluent Entities is among them

Good news for CodeFluentees: you’ll be glad to know that CodeFluent Entities runs great on Windows 8 as well as Visual Studio 11 Developer Preview.
This way upon Windows 8 and VS 11 arrivals, SoftFluent will provide support of all Visual Studio versions since Visual Studio 2008. Furthermore, please note that CodeFluent Entities projects use the same schema from one Visual Studio version to another. This way it allows developers to use different Visual Studio versions to work on the same CodeFluent Entities project
