Next ASP.NET MVC Preview Coming in March

In a blog post Tuesday, Scott Guthrie, general manager of Microsoft's Developer Division, laid out the roadmap for its upcoming ASP.NET model view controller (MVC) framework for developing Web applications.

During its MIX08 conference in March, Microsoft will debut the next "public preview" version of ASP.NET MVC, which will also be available for download from Microsoft's site.

"This upcoming ASP.NET MVC preview release contains even more URL routing features and enhancements," Guthrie wrote. "You can now use named routes (enabling explicit referencing of route rules), use flexible routing wildcard rules (enabling custom CMS based URLs), and derive and declare custom route rules (enabling scenarios like REST resources mappings, etc)."

According to Guthrie, other improvements in this version include enchanced Visual Studio 2008 tool support, a test framework wizard and downloadable source code, among others.

A release date for the final version has yet to be announced, but Guthrie wrote that it -- along with ASP.NET Dynamic Data and updates to ASP.NET AJAX -- will debut "later this year."
