Yesterday Microsoft released a beta of ASP.NET MVC. After 5 CTP preview releases this is a major step towards the first release of ASP.NET MVC.
Key new things about this beta that I like…
- Explicit Go live license!
- Starting to see new Visual Studio Automation – you can now click Add View from within the controller – so now more having to File –New (you still can if you want) - The new feature will follow naming conventions and create a view folder for the controller if it doesn’t exist it will also allow you to set the typed view from the dialog.
- JQuery is now in the script folder – if you missed it Microsoft announced support for JQuery here. JQuery is worth paying attention to even from non MVC applications
- Silverlight Project integration – you can now link and host Silverlight from within a ASP.NET project using VS to do the link of the projects.
