Marten 1.3 is Out: Bugfixes, Usability Improvements, and a lot less Memory Usage

I just uploaded Marten 1.3.0 to Nuget (but note that Nuget has had issues today with the index updating being delayed). This release is mostly bugfixes, but there’s some new functionality, and significant improvements to performance on document updates and bulk inserts. You can see the entire list of changes here with some highlights below.

I’d like to thank Marten contributors Eric Green, James Hopper, Michał Gajek, Barry Hagan, and Babu Annamalai for their contributions in this release. A special thanks goes out to Szymon Kulec for all his efforts in both Marten and Npgsgl to reduce Marten’s memory allocations.

Thanks to Phillip Haydon There’s a slew of new documentation on our website about Postgresql for Sql Server folks.

What’s New?

It wasn’t a huge release for new features, but these were added:

  1. New “AsPagedList()” helper for fetching documents by page
  2. Query for deleted, not deleted, or all documents marked as “soft deleted
  3. Indexes on Marten’s metadata columns
  4. Querying by the document metadata

What’s Next?

The next release is going to be Marten 2.0 because we need to make a handful of breaking API changes (don’t worry, it’s very unlikely that most users would hit this). The big ticket item is a lot more work to reduce memory allocations throughout Marten. The other, not-in-the-slightest-bit-sexy change is to standardize and streamline Marten’s facilities for database change tracking with the hope that this work will make it far easier to start adding new features again.
