Hi all,

Npgsql 0.6rc2 is released.

Npgsql is a .net data provider for postgresql in 100% managed code.
More information can be found at:

Release notes:

Bug fixes:

Fixed an encoding bug introduced in 0.6rc1. Now Npgsql handles Unicode 
encoding correctly. Thanks (tarradelo ya com) and (ingmar interinx com) 
for pointing it out.

Fixed problem when getting empty resultsets. Thanks lynnroth for 
pointing it out.

New features:

Implemented support to specify max number of connections Npgsql can use 
for pooling. The default is 20. You can do that by using the construct 
MaxPoolSize=value in the connection string.

Also, a timeout construct was added to specify, in seconds, the maximum 
time Npgsql should wait for getting connections from the pool when there 
is no connections available. You can use it with Timeout=value in the 
connection string. Default value is 15.

Encodings used by Npgsql can now be specified in the connection string. 
Use the construct Encoding=value. Possible values currently supported 
are: UNICODE and SQL_ASCII. Default value is SQL_ASCII.

Both cvs repositories: gborg and mono are updated and synched with the 
latest code.

Please, get it and test it and please fill any bugs you find.

You can use both bug report system:
