ASP.NET MVC 2 is a free, fully supported Microsoft framework for developing highly testable and maintainable Web applications by leveraging the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern.
The framework encourages developers to maintain a clear separation of concerns among the responsibilities of the application – the UI logic using the view, user-input handling using the controller, and the domain logic using the model.
ASP.NET MVC applications are easily testable using techniques such as test-driven development (TDD).

The ASP.NET MVC site site provides tutorials, quickstarts, and videos. (

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Release Notes

1) Templated Helpers Allow You to Specify Extra View Data
ASP.NET MVC 2 now includes new overloads of the EditorFor and DisplayFor methods.
These overloads contain a parameter that accepts an anonymous object that can be used to provide extra view data.
The view data provided in this parameter is merged with any existing view data that is passed to the template.

2) The UrlParmater.Optional property can be used to work around problems when binding to a model that contains an ID property when the property is absent in a form post.

3) Fixed a bug that caused Internet Explorer versions 6, 7, and 8 (in compatibility mode) to hang when client validation is used in certain scenarios.
