    In This Topic
    Version 5.0.3 is a minor update to VistaDB 5 with fixes to issues discovered since the release of 5.0.  For a complete description of what's new in VistaDB 5 see What's New - Version 5.0.

    New Features In This Release

    NuGet Packages for Entity Framework and Logging

    You can now add VistaDB Entity Framework support and VistaDB Logging support for Loupe directly from NuGet.  This is particularly useful for Entity Framework because it automatically updates your application configuration file with the appropriate entries, adds the correct version of EF, and adds the provider assembly for VistaDB in one pass.

    We encourage you to use the NuGet distribution where feasible because fixes and enhancements are occasionally released to NuGet prior to the next full product release.

    Data Builder Hides Obsolete Encryption Options

    As of VistaDB 5 encryption is performed at the full page level, not at the column level.  This was largely the case with VistaDB 4 as well and has significant performance advantages.  To preserve the ability to display the encryption status of VistaDB 3 and 4 databases the column-level encryption settings were previously displayed in Data Builder.  As of this release, we've hidden these fields when they do not apply as they caused confusion to users wondering if their databases were encrypted or not.  We have also updated the relevant API methods that managed column encryption with the Obsolete attribute to warn developers when they are still being used since they no longer apply.
