Microsoft takes aim again at Web developers with new WebMatrix tool suite | ZDNet

WebMatrix returns

Microsoft is making available for download a first beta of the new WebMatrix as of today. The plan — if feedback is positive — is to release the final version before the end of this calendar year.

Scott Guthrie, the Corporate Vice President of Microsoft’s .Net Developer Platform, previewed last week a few of the tools that are part of the WebMatrix suite. These include a lightweight version of Microsoft’s IIS Web Server, known as IIS Express; an updated version of SQL Server Compact Edition; and a new “view-engine option” for ASP.Net, known as “Razor,” which enables developers to embed Visual Basic or C# within HTML.
