Does anyone know when Linq to CRM is scheduled to be released and come out of beta?

 

Thanks,

Hi Pete, Microsoft has released a linq query provider with the CRM SDK. I recommend you check that out: http://friism.com/linqtocrm-obsoleted

Wow, sorry to hear you are killing the project. On the other hand though it is great that Microsoft supports Linq now. Thanks for the info.

Why are you killing the project? Because of the cheap LINQ provider in the SDK? The one that cannot be used in plugins? The one that fetches a shitload of records to the client to check conditions there? The one that isn't able to use FetchXML to work with Linked Entity's? The one of which the caching mechanism sucks?

I suggest you continue this project ;-)

That's interesting, Martin. I did not realise that filtering is done client-side with the MS SDK Linq provider. Also, according to this page:http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff681573(v=MSDN.10).aspx the provider supports joins. You mention that it doesn't support linked entities, can you be more specific?
