The BrightstarDB project has just reached another milestone with the 1.8 release announced today. This version adds some requested features to the Entity Framework and Data Objects APIs as well as some performance enhancements. In addition, from this release a Docker image is now available - this is really exciting news as it enables admins to swiftly deploy BrightstarDB instances into dockerized environments - in particular it makes it now trivial to get BrightstarDB up and running in a VM on Azure or AWS.
We are pleased to announce a pre-release version of BrightstarDB 1.4 is now available on NuGet. For more details please see the announcement post over at the BrightstarDB blog.
