EF v1 (delivered by VS 2008/.net 3.5 SP1) is... almost... here. (And the .Net Rocks podcast announcing it is already here.)
I suspect some of you are quite anxious for EF v1 to finally RTM. I wish I could announce that it is out now. Believe me, I really wish I could make that announcement. ;-) Sadly near the last minute there was a slight delay, and it just hasn't quite hit the web yet. Soon. Very soon.
In the meantime, you might want to check out the latest .Net Rocks podcast at http://www.dotnetrocks.com/default.aspx?showNum=365 which was supposed to be an announcement of our RTM but ended up going out a few days in advance of the product.
