Would it be possible to either update this to the latest release build, or stop shipping with it and instead let people use their own version from NuGet? There's some bugs in the bundled beta that were resolved in the final release, and it's lacking some of the classes (for example, DbConfiguration is missing). Shipping an older version in the GAC is problematic as a GAC'd version of an assembly is always preferred over a local copy, so I needed to completely delete it from the GAC to get my site to work properly.

I use the current NuGet version of EF and just deleted the old version from the GAC.
