1.7 - September 19th, 2013

This release improves source control support for programmable objects like stored procedures, views and functions.

ReadyRoll 1.7 introduces a new way of deploying database changes, called Deploy-Change migrations (now called Programmable Objects). Rather than creating a new script for each stored procedure change, you can simply edit a re-usable Programmable Objects script and hit ‘Deploy’ within Visual Studio to apply the change to the database.
