The news is out (see paragraph four specifically)  on what I have been working on for the last six months.

 

Bottom line, we have big visions for what “vNext” of ADO.NET is going to encompass.  We have heard that developers have huge investment in the existing data access APIs both in terms of knowledge and experience, and want the new functionality without introducing an entirely new data access stack.  The trick (and not an easy one) is to support the new features/ scenarios without shoe horning it into the old API.  Although challenging, I think we have good ideas on how to achieve this.

 

Much more to come as information becomes public…
