Sergey Koshcheyev, project leader of NHibernate, just announced the release to the world of NHibernate 1.2.

NHibernate 1.2 has been in beta testing for the last half year. Today it is officially marked stable, production-ready, and supported. What are the most compelling new features and why should you upgrade?

Just a brief overview of the new features:

  • there is a commercial support: I guess that the lack of that is one of the things that scares "traditional" IT managers the most
  • Native support of generics
  • Support for Stored Procedures
  • SysCache2: a second level cache provider based on the ASP.NET cache
  • Support of SQL Server 2005 specific features like the new paging system
  • Added support for SQL Server CE

For more details: NHibernate 1.2 is here!
