ASP.NET MVC 2 is awesome but I just hate the WebPI since it screwed up my IIS settings..

I forgot this : What are the differences since the last drop?

It means that we can run MVC 2 on real web servers ?

Congrats on getting this out. My one wish is that you do the tutorials and samples using Visual Basic this time round. My feeling is that so far MVC has been targeted at C# devs only. (Look at NerdDinner.com) When will we be able to install?. At the moment you cannot install on a system that has VS2008 and VS2010RC.

Ok, I have to make some very noob questions (I just started with ASP.NET MVC)... from the browser/client point of view, is there any difference between calling a page/fragment handled by an AsyncController and one handled by a standard Controller?

From what I see in the samples, AsyncController gives you 2 things:

- A nice helper for multi-threading parallel operations (sort of like BackgroundWorker for Windows.Forms)

- A better management of the ASP.NET thread pool for high-traffic applications

Are there any other advantages that I am not seeing?

The MSDN content/walkthrough for "MVC Areas Application" contains the wrong code in the samples that and the download is unrelated to a walkthrough for Areas (cut paste errors). Just an FYI....

Nice! Does this work on Visual Studio Web Express? I couldn't get the RC to work, but MVC1 worked perfectly.

100% of the content on the main asp.net MVC site is video.
Please consider adding some alternative content because a) some people work in shops whose firewalls block all streaming video and b) some people like myself work in shops where the computers have the audio cards disabled and c) some people just don't like watching videos and would prefer to have a text article or walk-through that we can print out and read.

“Areas” and new helper functions, utilities, and API enhancements

I agree with this guy! i don't have sound on my computer at work, so the videos arn't to useful. and in general i prefer reading to watching videos when it comes to coding.
