Today marks the first day of engineering for the ADO.NET Entity Framework V2.0, and the team has been looking at various options to ensure that the design of Entity Framework V2 truly reflects the requirements of the day to day challenges that our developer community faces when building real-world applications and services. We would like to start by being as transparent as possible in our design process.

We will follow a process similar to what you may have seen on Astoria Team blog (ADO.NET Data Services) over the past 9 months, regularly posting our design notes to the New Entity Framework Design blog and providing you with the opportunity to give feedback when we are actively discussing a certain aspect and before we have made a final decision. For more information on how this process will work, check out our first post, and expect more to come very soon!
