VistaDB 2.1 database for .NET has been released
VistaDB is a small-footprint, embedded SQL database alternative to Jet/Access, MSDE and SQL Server Express 2005 that enables developers to build .NET 1.1 and .NET 2.0 applications.
VistaDB features SQL-92 support, 500KB embedded footprint, free 2-User VistaDB Server for remote TCP/IP data access, royalty free distribution for both embedded and server, Copy ‘n Go! deployment, managed ADO.NET Provider, data management and data migration tools.
This 2.1 update includes over 60 improvements, including new support for .NET 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005.
I’ve used VistaDB in some of my applications earlier, and I must say it works like a charm with its incredibly small footprint, instant cold-connect and warm-connect. Here is a well-written review of VistaDB comparing it with MSDE and Jet/Access.
