  • MVC and Web API are (for the most part) a pleasure to use, thanks for all the work.

  • Cool. can you explain to me why a release like this does not mean an update to the main dotnet framework?

  • ASP.NET MVC, Web API and Web Pages ship as out of band NuGet packages - no .NET Framework update required. You just install the NuGet packages into your project which adds the right assembly references and you are good to go!

  • "Install-Package Microsoft.AspNet.WebApi -Version 5.2.0"

    Is that a typo? Should it be "Install-Package Microsoft.AspNet.WebApi -Version 2.2.0"?

  • Well, that's confusing (nothing new): according to "Manage NuGetPackages" Microsoft ASP.NET Web API 2.2 *is* Version 5.2.0 (no typo above).

    I'm sure there is a semi-logical explanation for "2.2 == 5.2.0", but it is still confounding, confusing, and seemingly contradictory (not to be confrontational, but that's my take on it).

  • Yes, the packages for Web API 1.0 were actually versioned as 4.0, thus causing this versioning disconnect. In ASP.NET vNext ( we plan to merge MVC, Web API and Web Pages into a single framework - MVC 6. The versions will all get aligned at that time.

  • I created an mvc 5.2 website which include web api 2.2. I set active solution platform to x64. When I hosted it on IIS Express 8, I got error "Could not load file or assembly Website' or one of its dependencies. An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format. ". But when I hosted it on IIS no error happened. I hosted it on IIS Express 8 no error happened when I changed the active solution platform to x86 or Any CPU.

    Do I need special settings for x64 platform in IIS Express?

  • This is good, but why in earth you are not open sourcing the web forms.  ScottGu wrote that Web Forms was not open source because it was part of the framework, but as James points out, and Daniel Roth explains you can open source and have it shipped like an out of band NuGet Packages, so that explanation clearly is not accurate.

    Web Forms can really have a second wind if you let the community take it to new directions and to expand its capabilities, fix some weakness and improve it to have a more natural integration between Javascript and Web Controls, to have Javascript widgets to be easily callable from the server part, this is to take ASP.NET Web Forms to the next level.
