I almost exclusively use SubSonic as my DAL to provide a quick, easy, and thoughtless way of getting to my data, and worry about my business logic.
Well, Rob Conery has used his massive brain (and programming laziness, explained in his post - we all have that gene) to put together the best installment of SubSonic yet, in version 3. In his blog post, he details the journey and what is to come. So, I will not bore you with my dribble.
I will leave you with this nugget of information though. He was hired onto the Microsoft team mostly as a result of what he was able to accomplish with SubSonic. Now, he brings his inside knowledge to us by marrying SubSonic and Linq together! Unfortunately though, it's not backwards compatible. I am afraid with the overhaul, that this was not possible.
Seriously, read his blog post! :)
