I must admit that the ASP.NET MVC team is so consistent in developing ASP.NET MVC framework to be better and better. Just few months after the release of ASP.NET MVC 2, now the Preview 1 of ASP.NET MVC 3 has been released.
Yes, Preview 1 maybe not interesting for some of you but it’s a good time to evaluate the framework and provides feedbacks. Tell them what you like and don’t like, this is a good time for it.

New features delivered in this Preview 1 are:
- Razor View Engine – a new http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2010/07/02/introducing-razor.aspx.
- Multiple View Engine Support – Add View dialog now supports choosing a view engine and adding custom view engines.
- Validation Improvements – Support for more validation attributes such as the new ones introduced in ASP.NET 4.
- Dependency Injection at all levels – Opened up seams for applying the dependency injection when instantiating components of the framework. This allows developers to hook into the creation of models during model binding, action filters, etc.
- Dynamic View and ViewModel Properties – These dynamic properties provide syntactic sugar to setting and accessing ViewData values making controller and view
- Global Action Filters – allows registering action filters that apply to all ASP.NET MVC requests. This removes the need to apply a filter attribute on every controller.
- Support for Permanent Redirects – Added new overloads for permanent redirects which issue a 301 HTTP status code instead of a 302.
The following Scott Guthrie’s blog post will guide you to get an overview of those features:
And, yup I said feedback to them. You can use ASP.NET MVC forum to post any feedback you have.
