Since the release of EF6 our team has been working on the EF6.1 release. This is our next release that includes new features.
EF6.1 adds the following new features:
The runtime is available on NuGet. If you are using Code First then there is no need to install the tooling. Follow the instructions on our Get It page for installing the latest version of Entity Framework runtime.
The tooling for Visual Studio 2012 and Visual Studio 2013 is available on the Microsoft Download Center. You only need to install the tooling if you want to use Model First or Database First.
Since the Beta 1 of EF6.1 we’ve just been fixing bugs and tidying up the new features. There are no new features in the RTM since Beta 1.
We’d like to say thank you to folks from the community who contributed features, bug fixes, and other changes to the 6.1 release - RogerAlsing, ErikEJ, and mikecole.
In particular, we’d like to call out the following contributions:
