ASP.NET MVC For Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 Released

You can find the installer on CodePlex

Microsoft released ASP .NET MVC for Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1, you can find the installer on CodePlex. Many of the new Visual Studio 2010 features intended to support the TDD workflow fit very nicely with ASP.NET MVC, which ScottGu will describe in an upcoming blog post.

If you run into problems with the installer, try out this troubleshooting guide by Jacques, the developer who did the installer work and do provide feedback.

You’ll notice that the installer says this is ASP.NET MVC 1.1, but as the readme notes point out, this is really ASP.NET MVC 1.0 retargeted for Visual Studio 2010. The 1.1 is just a placeholder version number. The version number was bumped to avoid runtime conflicts with ASP.NET MVC 1.0. All of this and more is described in the Release Notes

When VS10 Beta 2 comes out, you won’t need to download a separate standalone installer to get ASP.NET MVC (though a standalone installer will be made available for Visual Studio 2008 users that will run on ASP.NET 3.5 SP1). A pre-release version of ASP.NET MVC 2 will be included as part of the Beta 2 installer.

Phil Haack recently published the Roadmap for ASP.NET MVC 2 which gives a high level look at what features are planed for ASP.NET MVC 2.

One cool new feature of Visual Studio 2010 is that snippets now work in the HTML editor. Jeff King from the Visual Web Developer team made available some snippets they plan to include in the next version. They are also downloadable from the CodePlex release page. Installation is very simple:

Installation Steps:

1) Unzip ‘ASP.NET MVC Snippets.zip’ into ‘C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Visual Studio 10\Code Snippets\Visual Web Developer\My HTML Snippets’, where ‘C:\’ is your OS drive.
2) Visual Studio will automatically detect these new files.

Try them out and let us know if you have ideas for snippets that will help you be more productive.
