LINQ in Action - LINQ Book & News

ADO.NET Entity Framework documents are back (ADO.NET vNext)

The original articles about the ADO.NET Entity Framework didn't stay online very long, but this time, two official documents are available:
These documents will give you an overview of what is coming in the next version of ADO.NET, mainly the ADO.NET Entity Framework, which is Microsoft's upcoming solution for mapping data to objects.
In these documents, you'll encounter the following:
  • The Entity Data Model
  • Entity SQL
  • LINQ to Entities
  • LINQ to DataSets
  • LINQ to SQL (formerly known as DLinq)
Note: there is no preview release of the Entity Framework for the moment.
We still don't know if DLinq will continue to live for a very long time (I don't see why we'd need two object-relational mapping solutions from Microsoft except for creating confusion).

Update:
These documents are also available online as web pages, not just Word documents.
A document about the EDM (Entity Data Model) is also available: web page or Word document
