Starting with v5.0 we no longer support Sybase iAnywhere (ASA) and Adaptive Server Enterprise. It's very hard, if not impossible to obtain a developer database version for either one of these and also ADO.NET providers are not publicly available. This sucks, but it is what it is. SAP has made it very difficult for us to obtain these, it was already a long process to get these in the past and it's the same today. Enough is enough.

We'll publish the v5.0 driver and DQE source on Github on our account there, so users who want to use sybase databases with LLBLGen Pro v5.0 can do so. We'll ship the templates with v5 as there are hardly any DB specific templates for sybase so that's not a big deal.

The source is available for you if you want to keep using sybase, however it's no longer supported, simply because we can't test it anymore. We'll make sure the code compiles properly and building the source will be a straightforward process, so if you're currently using the Sybase databases with our designer/runtime, you can keep doing so, it's just that we don't support them anymore. The code in the drivers and DQE is stable for years, changes in v5 are in the code outside these classes.

We uploaded 2 repositories:

Sybase ASA: https://github.com/SolutionsDesign/LLBLGenProSybaseASA
Sybase ASE: https://github.com/SolutionsDesign/LLBLGenProSybaseASE

The readme's have further information how to use them and what's included.

We hope this helps anyone out who's stuck with these databases and doesn't leave anyone out in the cold. It's what we can do at this point, as without access to asa/ase databases it's impossible for us to test the code and thus give official support.
