Do you have a release for Visual Studio 2015 ?

After installations, weird error messages displayed when opening any existing solution, and nothing was shown in Solution Explorer. Even could not close Visual Studio (2013-Ultimate) and was showing error message. Finally had to end task from Task Manager. Disabled the extension and life is back. Very very unstable, please fix and test asap.

When a larger number of data tables when (such as the current db has a 144 table), reverse engineering when VS every stop, when the library table less is normal. (Current operating system: Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard + SQL 2014 + VS2013 + EF 5.0 or EF6.1) what is the problem?

Does not appear to work in VS 2013. Trying any of the context tools results in "Sequence contains no matching element." error.

Any support for VS2015?

There is one nasty hidden problem: when you have numeric(18,4) column the Power Tools Beta 4 do not generate for you the line: modelBuilder.Entity<Class>().Property(object =>, 4);
Instead it gets truncated to (18,2) with every SaveChanges.
I had to modify file manually.

Can you make the tool emit IDbSet instead of DbSet?

Worked great for quickly reverse engineering a small existing database.

This tool rocks, we've modified the T4 templates to generate our entities to inherit our custom base class (Entity.cs) and the DbContext to also inherit our custom base class (DataContext) to bootstrap apps with our extensible generic repositories and unit of work repository framework (
