Genome Visual Studio 2017 Integration Update v1.0 release - Friday, April 07, 2017
Starting with Visual Studio 2017 the Genome Visual Studio integration is distributed as separate Visual Studio Extension. The extension can be downloaded from the professional and express download sections. The v1.0 version includes support for Data Domain Schema projects (mapping project, mapping files). Support for Genome Messaging Extension (WOPii) will be included in the next version.  
Genome v4.2 SP10 released - Wednesday, May 18, 2016
Genome v4.2.11 provides fixes for the integration to Microsoft Visual Studio 2015. With the update DataDomain schema projects can be compiled to .NET 4.6.1 and .NET 4.6.2 as well. The service pack contains a few minor fixes in the Sqlite provider and in the runtime too.  
Genome v4.2 SP9 released - Tuesday, September 22, 2015
Genome v4.2.10 provides integration to Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 with the same functionality as for VS2013. Also with this update the DataDomain schema projects can be compiled to .NET 4.5.2 and .NET 4.6 too. The service pack adds support for PostgreSql database and contains a few minor fixes in the runtime too.  
Genome 4.2 SP8 supports VS2013 and .NET 4.5 - Thursday, October 24, 2013
Genome v4.2.9 provides integration to Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 with the same functionality as for VS2010 and VS2012. Also with this update the DataDomain schema projects can be compiled to .NET 4.5 and .NET 4.5.1 too. The service pack contains a few minor fixes in the runtime too.  
Genome 4.2 SP7 released - Wednesday, May 01, 2013
With a few fixes and a small feature!  
Genome 4.2 SP6 supports VS2012 RTM - Friday, August 24, 2012
Genome v4.2.7 provides integration to Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 RTM with the same functionality as for VS2010. This release contains only this tool enhancement and no change in the runtime.  
Genome 4.2 SP5 with VS2012 RC support - Friday, June 29, 2012
Genome v4.2.6 provides integration to Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 RC with the same functionality as for VS2010. This release contains only this tool enhancement and no change in the runtime.

Important note: Visual Studio 2012 RC comes with a change in the MsBuild system, that causes the Genome builds fail (in VS2012 and also in VS2010) with the following error:
error MSB4185: The function "CurrentUICulture" on type "System.Globalization.CultureInfo" has not been enabled for execution.

This problem will be fixed my Microsoft in VS2012 RTM. In the meanwhile you have to set the environment variable “MSBUILDENABLEALLPROPERTYFUNCTIONS” to “1”. (You might need to restart Visual Studio).

  2006/03/10: Genome 2.5 for all editions  
 

Releases of Genome 2.5

2006/03/10: Genome 2.5.0 (build 32)
Initial release for all editions/platforms.

2006/03/28:  Genome 2.5.2 (build 34)
Patch release fixing an issue found in Visual Studio 2005 integration, released for all editions, .NET 2.0 platform only.

Support for Oracle databases

Oracle Technology Preview has been merged with Genome for Microsoft SQL Server. Compiling to an Oracle database platform no longer requires a special build of Genome.

Genome editions supporting Oracle

Genome Professional and Community licenses include Oracle support, as does Genome Evaluation Edition. Genome Express however is limited to support one database platform only. Existing licenses will continue to support MS-SQL server platforms. To support Oracle with existing Genome Express licenses, you can upgrade to Genome Professional or purchase additional Genome Express licenses for Oracle.

Updated documentation

Genome's documentation has been restructured into the following main sections:

  • Release History
  • User's Guide
  • Reference Guide

The following chapters have been added or extended:

Updated samples for .NET 2.0

Samples have been updated to cover the new .NET 2.0 web project type and SQL2005 Express database files. Minor modifications to the sample code for .NET 2.0 have been made.

New object identity generation strategies

With the introduction of Oracle support, the mapping for server-generated object identity has been extended with a platform-neutral mapping and the native mapping for Oracle.

Recoverable transactions (LRT)

Genome's transactional behaviour for long-running transactions has been enhanced: as from this version, you can recover exceptions raised by Context.Commit. This can be helpful when the application has to handle lock violations detected during the commit process. With recoverable transactions, the application is able to resolve violation conflicts (e.g. merge and unlock the object) and retry the commit.

Bugfixes

This release fixes several bugs found in previous releases.
