.NET Framework 3.5 SP1 Update Released

  • Comments 3

I got no bugs on me... This is sort of 'last year's news' since the KB article for the update has a date of December 31st, but I suspect many of you weren't all that tuned in to patch releases over the holidays!

The update resolves a number of issues, including some related to topics I've recently presented:

ASP.NET Dynamic Data:  In the 3.5 SP1 release, 1-to-1 relationships among entities in the Entity Framework were not supported.  There was a workaround posted for this which is now superseded by the SP1 update.

ADO.NET Data Services: Since the ADO.NET Data Services Client did not support creating an entity and setting a reference association (e.g., a foreign key column) in the same step, you could not create new entities if the underlying database schema represented that relationship as a non-nullable foreign key.

  • I notice that the NET Framework 3.5 SP1 download page has a new date of 1/5/2009.  Does that mean that it has been re-released with these patches already in it?

  • Not according to the fine print toward the bottom:

    IMPORTANT: After installing the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 package (either the bootstrapper or the full package) you should immediately install the update KB959209 to address a set of known application compatibility issues.

    Although, I can't think of why they'd change the download and not just include the patch.  I'll see what I can find out internally.

  • Thanks, I didn't notice the note at the bottom during my first read.  I thought I'd read on some Microsoft blogs that there would be a re-release with this patches already in it.... anything you could find out in that regard would be helpful.
