New version 188.8.131.52 of ADO.NET provider for Firebird is ready for download. This release is about .NET Standard 2.0. Now the .NET Standard 2.0, with all the new APIs supported, version is available (this work, together with upcoming Entity Framework Core 2.0 support, is sponsored by Integrative9).
Another new feature is support for passing key over the wire for encrypted databases (you need to have server side plugin for this feature, i.e. this from IBPhoenix). New connection string property
crypt key is available for that. The value is base64 encoded data representing the key. You can find small example in tests.
Overview of all the changes can be found in tracker.
