ASP.NET vNext – The Hits Keep on Coming!

A visual history of the ASP.NET text books (+1 mock one) used in MSJC’s CSIS 116B Web Application Development Course.

The next release of ASP.NET often referred to as vNext now seems to have adopted the ASP.NET 5 moniker and is expected to be released at the same time as Visual Studio 2015 (CTP 6 available here). ASP.NET 5 is a complete redesign of the framework. Because of this, there have been some rumors, even outright mis-statements floating around the Web alluding to the fact that there will no longer be support for the Web forms paradigm (see Exit Web Forms? at W3 Schools ASP.NET 5). However, Microsoft’s ASP.NET Overview page reassures Web forms developers of continued support in this and future releases of their now open-sourced framework a commitment re-enforced in this Scott Hanslmen’s blog post in addition to this Telerik white paper.

What ASP.NET has to offer Web developers is huge including several evolutionary new features like:

  • New flexible and cross-platform runtime
  • New modular HTTP request pipeline (supports HTTP2)
  • Cloud-ready environment configuration
  • Ability to see changes without re-building the project
  • Side-by-side versioning of the .NET Framework
  • Ability to self-host or host on IIS
  • New tools in Visual Studio 2015
  • Open source in GitHub
