provides the following advantages over XML and attribute mapping:
attribute mapping, fluent mapping does not modify entity classes,
allowing them not to be persistence-aware.

be used for persistence depending on the application settings.

function that enables the user to easily locate enum types on the
diagram. Properties of the Enum types as well as those of their
members can be conveniently set and modified in the new Enum Type
Editor, provided in this latest version. Subsequently, these
properties are displayed in the Properties windows and can be edited
directly in that window.
Enhanced Visual Capabilities
improvements in the usability and user-friendliness of the
application include entity shape coloring, selection-driven
highlighting, application and diagram skins. The entity shape
coloring function allows the user to define a custom coloring for any
entity present on the diagram by changing its Shape Color property.
The selection-driven functionality is intended to improve the
readability of complex diagrams by visually indicating various
interrelations between different entities present on a particular
diagram. The general look and feel of the application is further
modernized with sets of skins for the diagram.
