How many TLAs is that? The Microsoft ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions Preview has been released. This includes the CTP of the Model-View-Controller framework which I personally have been looking forward to. Also included are:
  • ASP.NET Dynamic Data - Extensible Scaffolding for data-driven apps
  • ASP.NET AJAX - See what is new in 3.5
  • ADO.NET Entity Framework - Object Relational Mapping Solution
  • ADO.NET Data Services - Expose your Database through a web service
  • Silverlight Controls for ASP.NET - Embed Streaming Media, etc.

I can't wait to get home and have a play with this stuff. Remember that it's a Preview so not everything is going to look like this when it's baked.

To get started you will need: Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista or Windows XP. You will also need the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 and either Visual Studio 2008 or Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition. Have fun, you can get the bits from here:
