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
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?!).
