ASP.NET MVC 3, IIS Express, WebMatrix, Orchard, etc released

Big news from Developer Division yesterday. Scott Guthrie announced the release of slew of tools – all of which are free for anyone to use.

Excerpt from Scott Guthrie’s blog

I’m excited to announce the release today of several products:

  • NuGet
  • IIS Express 7.5
  • SQL Server Compact Edition 4
  • Web Deploy and Web Farm Framework 2.0
  • Orchard 1.0
  • WebMatrix 1.0

The above products are all free. They build upon the .NET 4 and VS 2010 release, and add a ton of additional value to ASP.NET (both Web Forms and MVC) and the Microsoft Web Server stack.

Head over to the blogpost for a ton of detail and download links.
