Just got back from a 10 day vacation with my family from lovely LA. We went to Universal and then spent 2 and 1/2 days at Disneyland, which Heather and Jonathan loved. I also got to spent some quality time with my very good friend Jon Flanders.
- Preview 4 of ASP.NET MVC is out on CodePlex.
- ScottGu has an extensive post on the new features
- Phil has Notes on the release
- Steven Walter has a post as well on the new features, which he lists as, and I quote,
· HandleError Action Filter – Simply by adding the HandleError attribute to any controller action (or controller class), you can redirect to a custom error view whenever an exception is raised.
· OutputCache Action Filter – Simply by adding the OutputCache attribute to any controller action, you can cache the output of the action.
· Authorize Action Filter – Simply by adding the Authorize attribute to any controller action, you can control who can call an action. For example, you can restrict access to a particular controller action by user or by role.
· AccountController – The Controllers folder includes a new controller named the AccountController. This controller includes Login, Logout, Register, and ChangePassword actions. The sample application uses the AccountController to enable you to log into and log out of the sample website.
· Ajax Helpers – This release of the ASP.NET MVC framework includes two Ajax helpers that you can use when creating a view: Ajax.ActionLink and Ajax.Form. The Ajax.ActionLink helper renders a link that performs an asynchronous request to the server. The Ajax.Form helper performs an asynchronous form post to the server.
