What's new in ASP.NET
4.0 presented by Dino Esposito
The keyword to understand what's new in the overall
ASP.NET 4.0 platform is "more control". ASP.NET 4.0 is neither revolution nor
refactoring of the architecture. It consists, instead, of a good number of
small-scale changes that all go in the direction of providing developers with
much more control of certain frequently used features of the existing framework.
For example, ASP.NET 4.0 Web Forms will give you more control over the viewstate
management, the generation of ID in the context of data-bound controls, the HTML
generated by some template-based controls. In addition, you find new families of
pluggable components for features that weren't supporting the provider model in
earlier versions of ASP.NET and a finer control over the linking of external
script files through the ScriptManager control. And this is just for Web Forms.
In addition, there's a bunch of new extensions for client-side rendering of AJAX
pages. Not a revolution, but enough to write better applications more
