Yesterday, Microsoft launched the final release of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4, which includes many of the frameworks, tools and languages utilized when deploying solutions on Microsoft’s Web Platform. As part of this launch, deploying ASP.NET applications gets a lot easier! The newest versions of both ASP.NET 4 and ASP.NET MVC 2 are now immediately available for download. Also, the team just finished updating the Microsoft Web Platform Installer to include the latest version of the framework, web server, database and tools you’ll need to build and run Web sites and applications on Windows.
