      • oAuth default sample project gives 500 internal server error - please fix

        The New MVC project with Individual Account Authorisation and a blank default Callback for the 4 oAuth provideres in Startup.Auth.cs currently gives a 500 Internal Server Error from Owin.
        If a default CallBack URL is defind AND registered with the oAuth provider then it works.
        The sample code needs to not just have ClientId and ClientSecret but
        CallbackPath = new Microsoft.Owin.PathString("/Callbacks/External"), //To be registered at Provider - and to NOT be the same as the MVC path Account/ExternalLoginCallback

        • Don't stop IIS-Express when stopping debugger with enabled Edit&Continue

          Currently if Edit & Continue is enabled (in VS 2013 Update 3 on x64) stopping the debugger always stops IIS-Express. See MS-Blog http://blogs.msdn.com/b/webdev/archive/2013/07/11/enable-edit-and-continue-debugging-option-is-now-on-by-default-for-new-web-applications-in-vs2013-preview.aspx

          This is very un-handy. Please don't stop IIS-Express all the time.

          • EnableMSDeployAppOffline - AppOfflineTemplate

            For WebDeploy you can specify <EnableMSDeployAppOffline> in the .pubxml file but this will generate a default app_offline.htm file that you cannot modify. Just provide an option for a template like <AppOfflineTemplate>

            • Add reporting feature

              I really disappoint to use ASP.Net MVC just because of it not include any kind to directly reporting feature. Otherwise this is a very good framework.
              Please add reporting feature, like crystal report etc.

              • Move hardcoded strings to resx file

                Move hardcoded strings from controllers, models (attributes, etc) and views into a to resx file. This should save a lot of time and hear pulling when localizaing application.

                • [Bug] Rewrite all controls which depend on javascript "Date" class (like RangeValidator)

                  I've tried to submit a bug, but got a "You are not authorized to submit the feedback for this connection.". Great! I'm not allowed to submit a bug?.. so here it goes a "suggeston" - RangeValidator automatically creates a javascript function called "function ValidatorConvert(op, dataType, val)", which uses the Date class. At the end of this functions, it checks whether de generated date equals the input date, and when it does not, it returns null. But the behavior of the Date class is not the same across browsers (e.g. its different in ie9 and ie11) when dealing with Daylight saving…

                  • allow overriding of the text element behavior

                    I use a Razor partial view to generate some SVG content. <text> is a valid SVG element. trying to get Razor to actually spit out that element was ridiculously hard using escapes. Also, if I reformatted the document it would break those escapes because of the line breaks.

                    Please consider for example a directive that tells the parser not to handle <text> elements or perhaps simply detecting attributes on the element and turning off the behavior. i.e. if a <text> element has attributes, they must not want it to be a Razor multi-line content block.

                    Also, I have been hearing…

                    • Unbake the RoleManager requirement from ASP.NET

                      Some of my sites don't want or need either a role manager or membership. I would like to just leave those tags out rather than having to put in a neutered role provider.

                              • Redesign ASP.NET providers to be asynchronous

                                All providers (except InProc) work with external data sources (SQL Server, Redis, etc.). For example, when processing single HTTP request a session state store provider can make several requests to an external data source. Each request to an external data source from session state store provider blocks an ASP.NET thread, becuase System.Web.SessionStateStoreProviderBase has no async methods.
                                The same is true for other providers (Output Cache Provider, Membership Provider, Profile Provider, Roles Provider). There is not much advantage in asynchronous code inside web forms or MVC controllers, if the whole ASP.NET pipeline is not asynchronous.
                                Since ASP.NET supports asynchronous httpmodules, it…

                                  • Built in ability to transform any config similar to what SlowCheetah already does.

                                    Currently if you want to transform any config file other than a web.config you need to use an external package called SlowCheetah, while SlowCheetah works well, currently there is a bug that causes us issues when building on a CI server. I'd like to see built in support for transformation of all config files, not just web.config files.

                                      • should add functionals as StrongPassword attribute instead of Password, but as let to save previous password in indentity

                                          Microsoft should develop a robust SDK which will capable to develop apps for Android, iPhone, Windows etc. so it can work across multiple platforms. This is a way Microsoft can become best development tools provider in the market.Somewhere, It should work like xamarin.com tool.
