LinqToSql is still much better than the SQLMetal command line tool from LinqMay2006, but it is still annoying that it does not autoupdate itself.

I just tried to drag the changed database into the designer and this is what happend: No this test database is not that complex, it just has 5 tables and a few links and helpers between them.
