I watched the video and I've briefly gone over the white paper.
 
Some questions:
 
1. We want to use a mysql server as the backend. Does your framework support mysql? It maybe possible since mydirect.net intends to have some operational support of the entity framework.  http://www.crlab.com/mysqlnet/ - http://www.crlab.com/mysqlnet/
 
 
2. Clickonce deployment security using asp.net membership is currently unsupported ( intranet Windows Authentication only). Do you have a work around for this? Right now I'm very unhappy with smart client deployment because it has no out-of-the-box solution for securing the Clickonce application over the internet.

DevForce EF delegates all knowledge of the database to the Entity Framework and the providers supporting it.  If MyDirect.Net works with the raw Entity Framework, then it should work with DevForce EF too.
 
DevForce EF does not address deployment, so smart client deployment in the EF/DEF world is still as frustrating and difficult as ever Smile.   We are planning to target Silverlight clients with a release of DEF later this year; Silverlight should address some of the problems with desktop deployments (while undoubtedly opening a whole new world of challenges).
