What is new in RavenDB 3.0: Meta discussion

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
This is a big release, it is a big deal for us. It took me 18(!) blog posts to discuss just the items that we wanted highlighted, out of over twelve hundred resolved issues and tens of thousands of commits by a pretty large team. Even at a rate of two posts a day, this still took two weeks to go through. We are also working on the new book, multiple events coming up as well as laying down the plans for RavenDB vNext. All of this is very exciting, but for now, I want to ask
your opinion. Based on the previous posts in this series, and based on your own initial impressions of RavenDB, what do you think? This is me signing off, quite tired....(Read whole news on source site)

NHibernate Pitfalls: One Shot Delete and Inverse Collections

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
This is part of a series of posts about NHibernate Pitfalls. See the entire collection here.When you clear all items in an entity’s collection by calling it’s Clear() method, if it has cascading option all-delete-orphan, NHibernate will then delete (when flushing) all of the collection’s items. That is because it considers them to be children of the entity and we explicitly told NHibernate that the entity no longer has any (very sad, I know! ).Ideally, we would expect NHibernate to only issue a single DELETE, as this:
border-image: none; width: 97.5%; text-align: left; line-height: 12pt; overflow: auto; font-family: "Courier New", courier, monospace; font-size: 8pt; cursor: text; direction: ltr; max-height: 200px; background-color: rgb(244, 244, 244);"> 1: DELETE FROM children

Visual Studio Online Update – Sept 23th

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
This week we are releasing our sprint 71 work on VS Online.  You can read more about the changes on the news page.  In the past, we’ve struggled with how to “time” the publishing of release notes with the deployment of the software.  As we get more and more instances (we have 4 now and will be adding a 5th one soon), it becomes increasingly hard to get any timing right.  Starting this sprint we are going to publish the release notes when the upgrade for the first public instance starts.  That means the release notes will always be
available a little before the features are but should usually be, at most, a couple of days earlier (and less for many people). I also wanted to comment on one thing mentioned in the news post: work item performance. I mentioned last sprint that we are bringing some larger internal teams onto TFS/VS Online internally and, in that process, we’ve run into some performance (and usability) issues.  We made some progress on them last sprint and more this sprint. A couple of examples: Work Item form loading – One of the teams has...(Read whole news on source site)
