Semantic versioning joke aside. EF 7 looks like its set to be the same framework most people love to work with. With a new polish in the backend.

One thing that is worrying is the fact they are talking about batch updates though, this was implemented in the last major release so is nothing new, although maybe now it is being implemented better. It seems that some of the stuff maybe there as a way to make the framework shine, after all its very difficult to sell backend changes.
