ASP.NET MVC 2 Released

I’m happy to announce that the final release of ASP.NET MVC 2 is now available for VS 2008/Visual Web Developer 2008 Express with ASP.NET 3.5.  You can download and install it from the following locations:

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

We shipped ASP.NET MVC 1 a little less than a year ago.  Since then, almost 1 million developers have downloaded and used the final release, and its popularity has steadily grown month over month.

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. Like the first release, we are also shipping the source code for ASP.NET MVC 2 under an OSI-compliant open-source license.

ASP.NET MVC 2 can be installed side-by-side with ASP.NET MVC 1 (meaning you can have some apps built with V1 and others built with V2 on the same machine).  We have 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 Features

ASP.NET MVC 2 adds a bunch of new capabilities and features.  I’ve started a blog series about some of the new features, and will be covering them in more depth in the weeks ahead.  Some of the new features and capabilities include:

You can learn more about these features in the “What’s New in ASP.NET MVC 2” document on the www.asp.net/mvc web-site. 

We are going to be posting a lot of new tutorials and videos shortly on www.asp.net/mvc that cover all the features in ASP.NET MVC 2 release.  We will also post 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). 

Summary

The ASP.NET MVC team delivered regular V2 preview releases over the last year to get feedback on the feature set.  I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who tried out the previews and sent us suggestions/feedback/bug reports. 

We hope you like the final release!

Scott

When you build this new end-to-end sample app for MVC 2, please consider building the data access with Entity Framework in order to begin introducing EF to people who would not otherwise test it out. Microsoft has dead-ended LinqToSql and has stated that EF is the way we should be going, yet every sample I see still uses LinqToSql. If you claim EF is the right thing to do, then let's see it come from you in this new sample app!

# re: ASP.NET MVC 2 Released

I have VS 2010 RC installed, and you installed ASP.NET MVC 2 for that version.  I now find I cannot install ASP.NET MVC 2 RTM for VS 2008.  The install tells me a version of ASP.NET MVC is already installed.

I'm in a transition phase where I really want to use both IDE's.  Did I just do something wrong or should we just sit tight and get ready for VS 2010 RTM?  And at that time, will folks making a transition be able to have ASP.NET MVC 2 RTM for both platforms?

# re: ASP.NET MVC 2 Released

Any Plan for a VS2010 RC2 before the final RTM.Our thinking is that SL4 might be available in Mix 2010.So SL4, This MVC 2 and the patches already  publish would made a perfect VS2010 RC2 release and will help in the Final RTM of VS2010 build even if it can be available for merely month for testing.

# re: ASP.NET MVC 2 Released

Much awaiting product from Microsoft, any ways now its time to develop using MVC architecture.

# re: ASP.NET MVC 2 Released

Wednesday, March 17, 2010 5:24 PM by Brendan

Does

"Note Because Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2010 RC share a component of ASP.NET MVC 2, installing the ASP.NET MVC 2 RTM release on a computer where Visual Studio 2010 RC is also installed is not supported." (From the installation notes)

mean that it breaks the ability to run VS2010RC and VS2008 side-by-side?

If so, that's pretty disappointing as that's not an uncommon scenario.

# re: ASP.NET MVC 2 Released

Wednesday, March 17, 2010 9:55 PM by pattioso

While I believe in the good things that MVC brings us, I am not sure if we are hearing anything from those who turned Web developer from a VB like background, I guess these silent audiences will simply stick to webforms.

But from a team lead perspective, we can't afford to choose either one depends on project nature, we need a single framework for enterprise development planning, and we also need to leverage the manpower from all members in the team regardless of their strength (well, I don't like  to fire all those webform oriented folks), so I am wondering, can a control based, "drag and drop" kind of design time support be made available to MVC framework, probably in the view without the viewstate/postback stuff, yet yet still maintaining the good model from MVC?

If the answer is "no", may I understand the challenge behind that?

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> I was really excited, I couldn't wait for the new release. We are going to release superscout.com using MVC2 this week, but I just found that model binding of collections with non-consecutive indexes is still not working. What is the plan in this area?

The general collection-binding syntax is described at www.hanselman.com/.../ASPNETWireFormatForModelBindingToArraysListsCollectionsDictionaries.aspx.  Binding to non-sequential indexes is described at haacked.com/.../model-binding-to-a-list.aspx (use the .index suffix to tell us what your indexes are).

I'm a bit of a newbie and in the past few months have built a couple of small apps in asp.net and vb.net (I am learning c#). However I started to look at the excellent MVC nerddinner example and want to start working with MVC for future apps (as it just seems such a logical way to go). Wondered if anyone had any examples of how I could build an app with a parent-child relationship managed in part via tab like forms. The app I'd like to do in MVC is for a small school and I'd like to create new families and then link up children and parents to the family - but using a tab like form to seperate out the children from the parents etc. . I've already built a data model for this (according to requirement). If anyone has anything to guide me it would be great........my work is all voluntary whilst I am recovering from health problems.

Any further tutorials or video's would be brill.

Hi Scott,

Thanks for a great platform. I love it and so does everyone I know that's worked with it.

Is MVC2 bin-deployable like MVC1 was? I'm working on an MVC application I would like to deploy to a server that is running .NET 3.5 SP1 but does not have MVC2 installed on it yet.

Thanks,

@Nevada,

>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Is MVC2 bin-deployable like MVC1 was? I'm working on an MVC application I would like to deploy to a server that is running .NET 3.5 SP1 but does not have MVC2 installed on it yet.

Yes - ASP.NET MVC 2 is definitly bid-deployable just like MVC1 was.  You can use it on a .NET 3.5 SP1 server just fine.  If you go to the http://www.asp.net/mvc site you can find instructions on how to bin deloy (they are the same as ASP.NET MVC V1).

Hope this helps,

Scott

Great work on MVC! I am completely convinced that this is the best way to develop web applications! I have only been playing with it for a month. I have completed NerdDinner and I have started a new project of my own. There is a lot to learn, but I REALLY like the separation between code and the view.

Unfortunately, I have been unable to deploy my application (which works great in VS2008 with MVC 2 RTM on my XP development machine). I can't deploy it to IIS 5.1 on my local machine, or to IIS6 on our test web server, or to IIS 7 on my Windows 7 machine at home. I have read all of the options at the main ASPNET MVC web site, and Scott Hanselman's directions for installing on pre-IIS7, and Steve Sanderson's blog on the subject, to no avail. Why is it so hard to deploy this product?

# re: ASP.NET MVC 2 Released

Friday, March 26, 2010 9:36 AM by Rob Wood

MVC Is Fantastic! but I cannot get MVC2 to build on our TFS Build server.

MVC1 projects are fine, the server has MVC2 installed, but just trying to compile the standard MVC2 project template code give these errors:

error BC30002: Type 'HttpPost' is not defined.

error BC30451: Name 'UrlParameter' is not declared.

error BC30451: Name 'AreaRegistration' is not declared.

Can you help shed any light on this, Microsoft.Web.Mvc.Build.dll does not appear to exist any more and that seems to be the only solution available on the net.

Thanks,

Rob.

Congrats,But I don't know why Mvc2.0 have not 'MVC2 NestedMasterPage Template'? When we add a view,I can choose the MasterPage,But when I add a new masterPage,I can't find the option for choose the materPage(I guess it's would to choose 'add a new item' in menu),So I must add a 'NestedMasterPage',and delete the CodeBehind file and alter the Mater file.

This is a very exciting news. For those who has used ASP.NET MVC 1 before, you may need to uninstall it from the server before installing the latest release ASP.NET MVC 2 version. I did upgrade from ASP.NET MVC 1 to ASP.NET MVC 2 and all works smoothly with ASPHostCentral (http://www.asphostcentral.com). Two thumbs up for those who have put an extra effort into this project and I am very positive this will be a successful one

All the best :-)
