Microsoft just announced today that they are open sourcing ASP.NET MVC 4, ASP.NET Web API, ASP.NET Web Pages v2 (Razor) all with contributions under the Apache 2.0 license. The source code is available on codeplex. This is great news for ASP.NET developers!

It's important to note that the source code was available for some things before, but now that it's under the Apache license it can actually be used in an open source manner. This is a big step in the right direction for Microsoft.

This is fantastic news as it will make it so much easier for obtaining and distributing for multiple purposes!
