Release notes for Microsoft.Data.OData 5.6.3? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We just tried to update nuget packages Microsoft.Data.OData (and related packages) from 5.6.1 to 5.6.3 and our WCF Data Services stopped working. We started getting exceptions like this;

    message: "Unable to create a constant value of type 'System.Data.Services.Internal.ProjectedWrapper2'. Only primitive types ('such as Int32, String, and Guid') are supported in this context."

    I tried to find some release notes for 5.6.3 but all I could find was the very sparse information on the nuget site. Are there any known breaking changes in the October 21st release? Where can I find out how to fix this?

  • Hello kjetilk,

    According to your description, I made a test with the newest odatalib in WCF Data Service project, however, both with EF5 and EF6, the project could still work as except even upgrading to 5.6.3. Since I do not know what operation you do causes this error, I just simply query the service in a web browser as:


    The detail test environment is:

    VS2013, Windows 8.1, .NET 4.5, Odatalib 5.6.3 and Entity Framework 5/6.

    Is it right to reproduce this issue? If not, please provide a detail description about how you would encounter it and your detail environment that would help narrow down this issue.

    >> Are there any known breaking changes in the October 21st release?

    The detail information seems to be just under the installed command:

    New Features:

        1.  ODataLib now supports reading and writing undeclared primitive type properties into ODataEntry/ODataComplexValue.

    2.  Add dlls which target .NET Portable Lib with support for .net 4.5, Win Phone 8, Win Phone 8.1, and Win 8 into NuGet packages

    Also, I would like share a discussion regarding this exception which might be helpful:
