DataObjects.NET Express is freeware database persistence layer for .NET Framework. It dramatically decreases development time by handling persistence of your classes transparently--DataObjects.NET PetShop sample (Microsoft's .NET Pet Shop clone) contains 3 times less business and data tier code then its original exposing much more features including access control and editing support. DataObjects.NET handles all types of relationships, has extremely powerful access control system, automatic transaction management, automatically updates the database schema, supports queries (including full-text queries), multilingual properties, browse past mode (an ability to see the database at any previous point in time), .NET Remoting. Note: this version of DataObjects.NET supports Microsoft SQL Server 2000/2005 only.
Version 3.9.5 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.

We've used the commercial version of this product for nearly 2 years and have saved thousands of hours of development time. The company is very responsive to users' needs and the product is very high quality. Support is responsive, intelligent and thorough. I've worked with some extremely excellent ORM products in the C++ world, and this .NET product matches up with some of the best.
Documentation is written in English by Russian speaking writers, and can be a little unclear at times. NDoc API documentation can be sparse at times. On the flip side, questions are answered via their website very quickly, although many could be avoided were the documentation better.
