NHibernate 3.2 Released

NHibernate 3.2 was released some weeks ago. Get the source code from the SVN repository here: https://nhibernate.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/nhibernate.

Binaries here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/nhibernate/files/.

Release notes: https://nhibernate.jira.com/secure/ReleaseNote.jspa?projectId=10000&version=10440.

JIRA issue tracking: https://nhibernate.jira.com.

As always, you can get help from the NHibernate Users mailing list: http://groups.google.com/group/nhusers.

Lots of bug fixes and some new features. My favorite ones are:

  • Mapping by code: fluent configuration, no more .hbm.xml files required;
  • Subselect: ability to map SQL views as entities;
  • HQL paging: TAKE and SKIP on HQL;
  • Integrated bytecode provider: one less DLL to deploy.

Fabio Maulo, the NHibernate development team leader, has blogged about some of the new features in his blog. Have a look!

The binary distribution of NHContrib was not yet updated, but you can get the latest trunk from here: https://nhcontrib.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/nhcontrib/trunk/.

  • Can I develop an ASP.NET for .NET Framework 2.0 by using NHibernate and Iesi collection

    I am very new to this development, and also wish to use new Nhibernate platform to involve in my development.

    Best regards,

  • veasnamuch:
    Yes, you can. NHibernate still targets .NET 3.5, which is .NET 2.0 plus some additions. Of course, if you want to use LINQ, you need to use 3.5, 2.0 won't do.
