The installer and source for Preview 4 is now available on CodePlex for download (http://www.codeplex.com/aspnet/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=15389).

Here’s a list of changes that have been made between Preview 3 and the current release Preview 4 –

  • New Simple Membership Features in the Default Project Template

  • New Output Cache Filter
  • Changes for ASP.NET AJAX
  • Namespaces in Routes
  • New Interface for Enhanced Testability of TempData
  • ActionInvoker Extensibility Improvements

As I highlighted in my previous post – Scott Guthrie has an excellent post with an example covering the new changes – http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2008/07/14/asp-net-mvc-preview-4-release-part-1.aspx

A sneak peek into ASP.NET MVC Preview 4 Release

Posted in .Net Framework 3.5, ASP.Net, C#, General I.T, Visual Studio 2008 by Ratnakar Garikipati on July 15, 2008

If you are keeping a close eye on what’s happening in the ASP.Net MVC space – Scott Guthrie has a post suggesting that the next Preview version (# 4) is to be expected later this week – which I can’t wait to get my hands on!!!

This is perfect for me in terms of timing because for the last few months I have been spending most of my time at one of our client’s place training/mentoring their application development team while trying to employ/adopt a long-term/future-proof Enterprise Development Strategy.

I was reluctant to introduce MVC yet to the team as it is still early stages. Although with some level of custom coding you can implement the core aspects of AJAX  etc, I wanted to wait until I check out Preview 4 – rightly so and as expected here comes an announcement from Scott that preview 4 has new features such as Caching, Error Handling and Security plus further additional support for AJAX.
