There have been two recent releases that I have been playing around with. First, Windows 7 was just released for MSDN subscribed members and being one, I was able to download and install within 48 hours. The download took almost 12 hrs since I had to compete with everyone else. However, take my word, it’s worth the wait. I’ve been using Windows Vista for about 2 yrs now and even though it was a nice improvement over Windows XP, it wasn’t ready when it was released and I pretty much considered it to be a BETA product. That has all changed with Windows 7 and this is what we should have gotten in the first release.
Secondly, ASP.NET MVC 2 Preview was recently relapsed for us to play around with and provided our feedback to the Microsoft developer team. I consider myself to be more of a web developer and I think this is the framework I’ve been waiting for. Don’t get me wrong, I still prefer ASP.NET Web Forms for certain projects; but if you are looking to build a Web 2.0 centric application that has SEO friendly URL’s and clean markup, then you should be using ASP.NET MVC. You can find out more information about this new release by checking out the following blogs:
I would also recommend you subscribing each of their blogs if you want to keep up to date with ASP.NET MVC or ASP.NET in general. Until next time…
