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!

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.
