A new design gallery for ASP.NET MVC hosts free HTML design templates that you can download and easily use with your ASP.NET MVC applications. The site is part of asp.net. Included with each design template is a Site.master file, a CSS stylesheet, and optionally a set of images, partials, and helper methods that support them.

Scott Guthrie, Vice President of the .NET Developer Platform, says on his blog entry ASP.NET MVC Design Gallery and Upcoming View Improvements with the ASP.NET MVC Release Candidate that you can preview each of the designs online, as well as download a .zip version of them that you can extract and integrate into your site.

In addition, the release candidate of ASP.NET MVC would ship shortly. The new features include:

  • Views without Code-Behind Files
  • Top-Level Model Property on Views
  • HTML/AJAX Helpers Now Enable Expression Syntax
  • Scaffolding Support
  • MSBuild Task for Compiling Views
