Microsoft open sources more of its ASP.NET technologies

Microsoft has announced it is open sourcing more of its ASP.NET programming-framework technologies — and that it will allow developers outside of Microsoft to submit patches and code contributions for potential inclusion in these products.

Microsoft Corporate Vice President Scott Guthrie blogged about Microsoft’s latest ASP.NET moves on March 27, noting that Microsoft already had made the source code of ASP.NET MVC available since it released version 1 (in 2009 under the MS-PL open source license). Microsoft is making the two new pieces — ASP.NET Web API and ASP.NET Web Pages (originally codenamed “Razor”) available under the Apache 2.0 license.
