MVC Framework beta released

The MVC Framework beta was released yesterday. You can download it here:

A couple of things to note:

  1. It puts the MVC assemblies in the GAC when you run the installer. This means that they won't be copied to your bin directory by default. Beware of this if you are expecting to deploy your application to a non-MVC installed server.
  2. It doesn't include the 'futures' assembly Microsoft.Web.Mvc. You have to download this separately from the Codeplex project site.
  3. There are a number of other small (some breaking changes) so be sure to checkout the release notes.

Thanks to Steve Mason for this. It's been a very quiet release.

Quiet? I'd say. A mouse is quiet. This is positively silent. Am I wrong to think something is up after all the fanfair with the previous releases?

Or is everyone just at the PDC?
