Microsoft Releases ASP.NET MVC 2 Preview 2

Today, Microsoft released ASP.NET MVC 2 Preview 2, the latest beta version of the MVC framework.

Along with a lot of the great new additions already seen in the first preview release, it looks like they’ve added a lot of flexibility in extending the validation processing, both on the client and server sides.

Having worked with the first version of ASP.NET MVC, I’m excited to see how much work they continue to put into the framework. Much like other Microsoft technologies, the product will get much better in version 2 and beyond once they’ve gotten feedback from the user community and they’ve had time to refine the product. I expect more and more developers will start looking to MVC as a genuine option since I know many people have been scared to move away from the comfort of ASP.NET web forms.

    It’s been a few months since MVC2 RC came out.
    Any idea when a final version *safe* for production use will be available?

    Here is the “official” word from Phil Haack:

    “The RTM release of ASP.NET MVC will be included in the RTM release of Visual Studio 2010, which is slated for some time in March. The VS2008 version of ASP.NET MVC 2 might release earlier than that. We’re still working out those details.”
