Hot on the heels of the release of ASP.NET MVC 2 yesterday, I’m happy to announce that we are releasing the source code to ASP.NET MVC 2 under the Ms-PL license, an OSI approved Open Source license.
This continues the trend from nearly a year ago when we released ASP.NET MVC 1.0 under the Ms-PL. You can read my blog post there to learn more about the hard work that goes into such releases.
While I’m one who loves lawyer jokes, I do appreciate the work that they do (one of my best friends is a lawyer) and am grateful for the hard work our legal team put in to make this happen again.
Get the source!
To grab the source code, visit the ASP.NET MVC 2 RTM Download Details page and look for the file named mvc2-ms-pl.zip.
This time around, we’re not planning to stop with just the source code for
System.Web.Mvc.dll. There’s a bit more source I would like to release under the Ms-PL which should hopefully be coming soon if I can get the ducks to line in a row (who knew releasing code required working with ducks?!).
