A couple of days ago we posted a new set of NuGet packages and today we posted a new tools installer for WCF Data Services 5.2.0-rc1. This prerelease integrates the UriParser from ODataLib Contrib and fixes a few bugs.
What is in the prerelease
This prerelease contains the following noteworthy bug fixes:
Fixes an issue where code gen for exceedingly large models would cause VS to crash
Provides a better error message when the service model exposes enum properties
Fixes an issue where IgnoreMissingProperties did not work properly with the new JSON format
Fixes an issue where an Atom response is unable to be read if the client is set to use the new JSON format
In this release ODataLib now provides a way to parse filter and orderby expressions into a metadata-bound abstract syntax tree (AST).
