Summary

In this chapter, we have learned what NHibernate is and why we would want to use it. We also briefly discussed the new important features that NHibernate 3.0 brings to the table. As an important aspect, we got all the information we need to find abundant documentation about NHibernate and get community-driven help or even commercial support (if needed). We also learned that NHibernate has a very broad user base and is driving many critical projects around the world in companies of all sectors.

To give you some numbers: over 100 thousand downloads have been registered so far for NHibernate 2.1.2, and more than 35 thousand downloads for NHibernate 3.0 in its first three months of availability.
