This page provides a roadmap for Entity Framework. This is a planning document, not a specification of what is to come. We hope to implement most or all of the features listed here, but there are no guarantees. Plans can change. You can help change them! Please visit the Entity Framework UserVoice site to provide feedback on our plans so that we have a better picture of what you want to see in the next release.

EF 7

Entity Framework 7 (EF7) provides a familiar developer experience to previous versions of EF, including LINQ, POCO, and Code First support. EF7 also enables access to data across relational and non-relational stores. EF7 is much more lightweight than previous versions and is built from the ground up to work great in the cloud (using ASP.NET 5) on devices (i.e. in universal Windows apps) as well as in traditional .NET scenarios.

EF7 is being developed on GitHub.

EF 6.2

We are currently working on the EF 6.2 release. You can view a list of work items being addressed in this release in our issue tracking system.

EF 6.1.1 -> 6.1.3

Since EF6.1 we have shipped various patch releases that include bug fixes, minor improvements, and community contributions. See the Entity Framework Version History page for more information.
