Hi, all!!

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

This release is another step in the direction of the final 2.0.12 release.

Here is the changelog of this version:

Npgsql ( 2.0.12 beta2)

    Fixed bugs:

        [#1011008] Add PhysicalAddress (MAC Address) support to
Npgsql. Thanks Gildas for patche and test case.

        [#1010977] Add application_name support to connection string.
Thanks Chris Coleman for patch.

        [ npgsql-Bugs-1011018 ] Invalid Cast with DbType.Time
Parameter. Thanks Patrick Earl for patch.
        Also added test case to reproduce the problem.

        [#1011021] Support DbMetaDataCollectionNames.ReservedWords.
Thanks Patrick Earl for patch.

        Fixed problem with last update about Password as byte[].
Reverted type of Password property of
        NpgsqlConnectionStringBuilder to String again. It was changed
from String to byte[] which was
        causing problems with previous client code. There is a new
        property called PasswordAsByteArray for those willing to use the
        byte[] property. Thanks Dan Shoubridge for heads up.

        [#1011044]. Fixed missing NpgsqlDataReader.GetTimeSpan() method.
        Added unit test case to cover this method.

        Added patch from Patrick Earl. Thanks, Patrick!
        This was implemented to support more of the NHibernate test suite.

        [npgsql-Patches-1011012 ] Australian Date and Time Formats.
Thanks Hans Peter for patch

        Fixes to VS.Net project properties. Thanks Philippe Le Grand
for heads up.

Thank you very much for all the bug reports and patches sent!
Thanks Josh Cooley for all his help with this release.
