Roundup: ASP.NET MVC 3 Features, Videos, Guides

Yesterday we brought news of the release of ASP.NET MVC 3 Preview 1, and everybody’s talking about it! Here’s the best bits of the introductions, in-depth guides and videos of the past 24 hours.

As always, Scott Guthrie has gone all-out with a tome covering everything including the view and controller changes, model and dependency injection changes, and all the details you need to get going straight away. Phil Haack also contributes some more details on what you can find in the new release.

There is also video content available immediately covering MVC 3 Preview 1; Scott Hanselman’s latest podcast includes a discussion on the topic, and Phil Haack has released a video which was recorded for the MVCConf.

If you’re looking for more of a deep dive on particular areas of the preview, then there’s plenty available too. Brad Wilson has a 4-part series on MVC 3 Service Location, a formalisation of service location and dependency injection in previous versions; Gunnar Peipman covers the HttpNotFoundResult and the ViewModel Controller property; and finally Maarten Balliauw covers MVC 3 and MEF.

You can go and download ASP.NET MVC 3 Preview 1 now from Microsoft; normal news service resumes tomorrow.
