ASP.NET 4 Developer Preview was recently made available and with that comes an updated default template. As developers, we don’t always have the necessary design skills to put something together that will look good (Hey, it works, what’s your problem). I think apart from the additional features that it’s great that all aspects of this framework gets some attention.

I would so the major feature in this release was a focus on compatibility between desktop and mobile browsers. With the growth of tablets and mobile devices, it will be more important than ever for developers to ensure that their sites are compatible with these form factors.

 What’s new in ASP.NET MVC 4?

  • Refreshed Default Project Templates
  • Mobile Project Template
  • Display Modes
  • Recipes
  • Task Support

I am going to have a look at some of the other features, such as the Display Modes, the View Switcher and Task Support overt the next couple of days.

Another template I really like, and I don’t know, but it’s probably because it feels very IPhony, is the Mobile Template
