ASP.NET MVC 2 Finally Released

You can download and install it from the following locations:


Note : MVC 1.0 Release Date: 27th Jan 2009


The final release of VS 2010 and Visual Web Developer 2010 will have ASP.NET MVC 2 built-in – so you won't need an additional install in order to use ASP.NET MVC 2 with them. 


ASP.NET MVC 2 is the next significant update of ASP.NET MVC.


·         It is a compatible update to ASP.NET MVC 1 – so all the knowledge, skills, code, and extensions you already have with ASP.NET MVC continue to work and apply going forward.

·         ASP.NET MVC 2 can be installed side-by-side with ASP.NET MVC 1

·         Here are the instructions on how to update your existing ASP.NET MVC 1 apps to use ASP.NET MVC 2 using VS 2008 here

·         Note that VS 2010 has an Automated Upgrade Wizard that can automatically migrate your existing ASP.NET MVC 1 applications to ASP.NET MVC 2 for you.



ASP.NET MVC 2 adds a bunch of new capabilities and features. 

Here is the Scott Gu's blog series about some of the new features.  Some of the new features and capabilities include:



Important Links:


You can learn more about these features in the "What's New in ASP.NET MVC 2" document on the web-site. 

A lot of new tutorials and videos shortly on that cover all the features in ASP.NET MVC 2 release. 

An updated end-to-end tutorial built entirely with ASP.NET MVC 2 (much like the NerdDinner tutorial that I wrote that covers ASP.NET MVC 1). 



Hope this helps.
