Microsoft Goes (More) Open Source

Great news from Redmond this morning, as Microsoft announced that they will release the source code for ASP.NET Web API and ASP.NET WebPages (Razor) under the Apache 2.0 open source license (ASP.NET MVC has been available under an open source license since version 1). The source code is already available on CodePlex using Git as the repository; http://aspnetwebstack.codeplex.com/ (Git support on CodePlex was announced just last week, and is also pretty cool news).

For more details take a look at Scott Guthrie’s blog or Scott Hanselman’s blog (Hanselman also some nice info about why Microsoft is doing this, why they are putting it on CodePlex, etc.)
