I am happy today, i was not expecting MVC for VS 2010 installer so early, As i posted earlier MVC was not included in Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1, and Microsoft promised that time that they will release a separate installer.
an installer for ASP.NET MVC for Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 is now available on Codeplex.

One cool new feature of VS10 is that snippets now work in the HTML editor. snippets are also included in this release . To install the snippets:

- Visual Studio will automatically detect these new files.
