WebMatrix Beta 2

Today we are also shipping WebMatrix Beta 2.  This release is an update of the WebMatrix Beta 1 preview we shipped this summer, and includes a number of great feature improvements.

In addition to the WebMatrix features introduced with the first beta, today’s Beta 2 release includes:

Web Page Enhancements: WebMatrix supports building standalone ASP.NET Web Pages using the new Razor syntax. It includes the same syntax improvements (@helper, @* comment *@, etc) that I mentioned above with ASP.NET MVC 3.  It also now supports building pages using both VB and C#.

Improved Templates: WebMatrix includes template projects for common scenarios.  The template projects now use HTML 5 and CSS 3 (and also work with downlevel browsers).  A new Wishlist project template has been added with Beta 2.

NuPack Integration: WebMatrix provides NuPack integration and supports a web-based admin experience for installing libraries to an application you are working on.

Toolkit Support: We are delivering a toolkit (that can be installed via NuPack) that provides convenient helpers that can be used within ASP.NET applications.  This includes helpers for Analytics, Facebook, GamerCard, Gravatar, LinkShare, Captcha, Twitter and Video scenarios.
