Hi, all!!

The Npgsql Development Team is proud to announce the Npgsql2 Beta3 release!

Npgsql is a .Net Data provider written 100% in C# which allows .net
programs to talk to postgresql backends. Npgsql is licensed under BSD.
More info can be obtained from http://www.npgsql.org

This release is one of the better done for Npgsql ever.

One of the big highlights of it is the great job on scalability done
by Jon Hanna. Npgsql, by default, doesn't cache all the data read from
database before delivering it to clients. Now it is delivered on
demand which gives a big benefit regarding used memory and
consequently in scalability as application servers will be able to use
the memory which was being used by Npgsql in past. You can see some
details here: http://npgsql.projects.postgresql.org/docs/manual/preloadScalabilty.html

I'd like to thank God for allowing me to do that.

I'd like to thank Josh Cooley for all his help. Jon Hanna for his
great job adding on demand data fetching, Alaric Dailey, David
Bachmann and Hiroshi Saito for all their feedback and patches and all
users who sent bug reports, comments and fixes. We couldn't make it
without your help. Thank you very much!

Please, give it a try and let us know if you have any problems.
