DevExpress ASP-NET MVC Extensions UnlockedGood news ASP.NET MVC devs!

We’re officially unlocking access to the DevExpress ASP.NET MVC Extensions by releasing them in the DXperience v2010 vol 2 release.

DevExpress ASP.NET MVC Product line?

Yes, we’re introducing a full ASP.NET MVC product line. That means you’ll get full support, updates, new features, and new extensions in future releases.

To understand the DevExpress ASP.NET MVC plans, start here:

DevExpress Extensions For ASP.NET MVC 2.0 - Quick Summary

Then check out the plans for the DXperience v2010 volume 2 release.

The current extensions from DXperience v2010 volume 1 release are getting new features:

New Features For ASP.NET MVC 2.0 Extensions (coming in v2010 vol 2)

Finally, read about our commitment to ASP.NET MVC by introducing several new ASP.NET MVC Extensions:

Price

Free, if you have a DXperience Universal, Enterprise, or ASP.NET subscription license currently.

If you do not have a DXperience Universal, Enterprise, or ASP.NET subscription license then you can get all the DevExpress MVC Extensions by purchasing one of the said subscription licenses starting at $799.99 per developer.

Native ASP.NET MVC Extensions

To be clear, you’ll have true ASP.NET MVC Extensions that:

  • produce no ViewState
  • use the latest jQuery library
  • support semantic rendering (in 5 extensions: Menu, NavBar, Pager, TabControl & PageControl)
  • use .NET Framework 3.5 – auto-properties, lambda expressions, LINQ, etc.
  • support Visual Studio 2010 and MVC 2.0 framework

These DevExpress Extensions for ASP.NET MVC were just introduced months ago in the DXperience v2010 volume 1 release. Since then, your requests and positive feedback have brought about a full DevExpress ASP.NET MVC product line.

Are you excited about using the ‘non-beta’ DevExpress Extensions for the ASP.NET MVC framework? Drop me a line below with your thoughts. Thanks!

Hi Mehul,

Can you provide a tentative date by when 2010 vol 2 might be released?

We are currently using 2010 vol 1 silverlight components, however some controls notably the AgDataGrid is not up to scratch and regrettably I am considering an alternative vendor's suite of Silverlight controls if vol 2 is not released by the end of 2010. Please advise.
