Genome 4.2 SP8 supports VS2013 and .NET 4.5 - Thursday, October 24, 2013
Genome v4.2.9 provides integration to Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 with the same functionality as for VS2010 and VS2012. Also with this update the DataDomain schema projects can be compiled to .NET 4.5 and .NET 4.5.1 too. The service pack contains a few minor fixes in the runtime too.  
Genome 4.2 SP7 released - Wednesday, May 01, 2013
With a few fixes and a small feature!  
Genome 4.2 SP6 supports VS2012 RTM - Friday, August 24, 2012
Genome v4.2.7 provides integration to Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 RTM with the same functionality as for VS2010. This release contains only this tool enhancement and no change in the runtime.  
Genome 4.2 SP5 with VS2012 RC support - Friday, June 29, 2012
Genome v4.2.6 provides integration to Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 RC with the same functionality as for VS2010. This release contains only this tool enhancement and no change in the runtime.

Important note: Visual Studio 2012 RC comes with a change in the MsBuild system, that causes the Genome builds fail (in VS2012 and also in VS2010) with the following error:
error MSB4185: The function "CurrentUICulture" on type "System.Globalization.CultureInfo" has not been enabled for execution.

This problem will be fixed my Microsoft in VS2012 RTM. In the meanwhile you have to set the environment variable “MSBUILDENABLEALLPROPERTYFUNCTIONS” to “1”. (You might need to restart Visual Studio).

  Why O/RM?  
 
....20 - 80% of a .NET enterprise application's code deals with data access. Costly to create and hard to maintain, this code does not even add to your application's business value.

Effortlessly persist .NET business objects in relational databases
Delegate tiresome, monotonous object-relational mapping tasks to Genome, and concentrate on the real business problems to solve. You no longer need to implement object CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations manually. As a unique feature, Genome allows you to encapsulate and reuse business layer query logic in the domain model without introducing unnecessary roundtrips to the database. This boosts your development productivity even more and improves your code’s maintainability.

Genome integrates with LINQ, Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 and automatically maps business objects to well-established relational database systems such as Microsoft SQL, Oracle and IBM DB2. Overall, Genome reduces brittleness and improves the data access layer's maintainability, leading to significant reduction in development efforts not only on the initial implementation, but also subsequently, when maintaining the code.
