ScottGu and Brad Abrams have announced the release of the first preview of the ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions.  The release includes great new features like:

  • MVC Framework
  • ASP.NET Silverlight controls
  • AJAX Enhancements like History support
  • Dynamic Data Controls
  • Entity Framework
  • ADO.NET Data Services

Grab it from here:  ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions

Also available is the MVCToolkit (courtesy of Rob Conery) which contains a bunch of helper extension methods you can use in your Views.  You can get it here: MVC Toolkit

Finally, Scott has also been posting a series of new posts on using the MVC Framework:

If you are new to the MVC pattern, those posts are a great place to start learning about the pattern and how the new MVC framework works in ASP.NET.  If you need and explanation of the MVC pattern, Todd Snyder, one of Infragistics Guidisans posted a great explanation here: MVC or MVP Pattern – Whats the difference?
