Scott Hanselman just wrote a blog entry about what's next for ASP.NET (vNext). The article has pretty pictures and is worth a read, but if you're too busy to read it here are the things that stood out to me.

  • packages.config, nuspec, and project files (csproj) merged into a unified view of project dependencies expressed as project.json
  • The ability to patch open source libraries with a simple override folder
  • “No-compile compile” - i.e. The ability to update a C# class and refresh the browser to see the change without needing to recompile the project
  • ASP.NET MVC and Web API unified into a single programming model
  • Dependency injection out of the box
