Work item tracking and Agile project management improvements – This update includes a ton of “smallish” improvements to work item tracking.  Things like
trend charts, area path search, better embedded url support, performance improvements, full screen support and more.  No single thing is likely to blow your socks off but, in the aggregate, it’s a very nice set of improvements.

Lesser-Known NHibernate Features: Future Queries

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Sometimes it makes sense to send several queries at the same time to the database server. This prevents multiple roundtrips and normally can provide results faster. Knowing this, NHibernate offers two features: multiqueries and future queries. Future queries build upon multiqueries and because they use LINQ, which is probably the most common querying API in NHibernate, I will focus in this.In order to use future queries, you queue them, by calling the ToFuture() or ToFutureValue() extension methods on any number of queries that you wish to retrieve together:
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: var futureProducts = session.Query().Where(p => p.Price > 1000).ToFuture();
