I spent a couple of hours today updating Visual Studio 2015 Preview to use the ASP.NET 5/MVC 6 Nightly Build. Because the process was a little tricky, I wanted to write a brief blog entry to document how I did it.

Is the new version of MVC solid enough to start building something that will go live in 1-2 months? Do you know when this new version of library will get the go-live license from Microsoft?

MVC6 is part of Visual Studio 2015 (so there is a very strong chance that it will be released this year or Microsoft is going to need to change the name). I wouldn't use ASP.NET 5/MVC 6 just yet for something going live in that timeframe -- it is still pretty rough. Things are moving rapidly, I would check into ASP.NET 5 again in another couple of months.
