ASP.NET Model-View-Controller Framework

This is just about the best thing I've heard in the last couple of years. Scott Guthrie showed a prototype of an MVC framework on the MVP Summit (ship it!).

This framework can be compared with Ruby on Rails and MonoRail.  A handler factory that determines from the URL which controller to instantiate and load. From the description, it sounds very cool and I hope that Microsoft will do the right thing: testability and maintainability right out-of-the-box. We can only hope that Microsoft will pick up some of the ideas behind the existing open-source frameworks. 

It has been a long time since I've been this excited about some new stuff coming from Microsoft. I would love to get my hands on some bits!

Hi All,

Please check this out. ASP MVC framework!

http://www.troika-asp.com

Probably the first "proper" MVC framework for ASP 3.0!
It uses OO JavaScript for Model and Controller logic and XSLT transformation templates for the View.
