In my last post on PDC09, I wrote about Silverlight 4 Beta. Another announcement I'm quite excited about is MVC 2.0 Beta, which was made by Bob Muglia in his keynote speech. The beta was made available for download right away, and a release candidate is expected sometime next month.
There are two MVC related sessions in particular I'm excited to watch the On-Demand videos of. The first is Microsoft ASP.NET MVC 2: The New Stuff by Stephen Walther, and the second is ASP.NET MVC 2: Ninjas Still on Fire Black Belt Tips by Scott Hanselman. The videos were online earlier but seem to have been removed as this site changes quite rapidly; hopefully they will be back before long.
To supplement these session videos, Phil Haack has put up a series of posts discussing the next version. Not only are his posts insightful, but the ensuing discussion in the comments is quite thoughtful as well.
- ASP.NET MVC 2 Beta Released
- Html.RenderAction and Html.Action
- ASP.NET MVC 2 Custom Validation
- Localizing ASP.NET MVC Validation
