Microsoft announced that ASP.NET MVC 2 is now available for VS 2008/Visual Web Developer 2008 Express with ASP.NET 3.5. Final release of VS 2010 and Visual Web Developer 2010 will have ASP.NET MVC 2 built-in – so you won’t need an additional install in order to use MVC 2 with them. MVC 2 can be installed side-by-side with MVC 1 (meaning you can have some apps built with V1 and others built with V2 on the same machine). ASP.NET MVC 2 adds a bunch of new capabilities and features: New Strongly Typed HTML Helpers; Enhanced Model Validation support across both server and client; Auto-Scaffold UI Helpers with Template Customization; Support for splitting up large applications into “Areas”; Asynchronous Controllers support that enables long running tasks in parallel; Support for rendering sub-sections of a page/site using Html.RenderAction; Lots of new helper functions, utilities, and API enhancements; Improved Visual Studio tooling support.
