    • Put IoC front and centre

      Bake inversion of control into the framework and reduce the reliance on inheritance. This will allow greater extensibility and enable new scenarios. A good example of this is MVCTurbine (http://turbineproject.com) - rather than developers having to roll infrastructure themselves, they could hit the ground running with their IoC container of choice.

      • Support Script# and give us an answer to the Google Web Toolkit.

        I would love to use Script# similar to how Google Web Toolkit works. Your Javascript story is still pretty weak in terms of allowing us to easily make complicated AJAX applications.

              • Paging, Sorting and Search in Scaffolding

                It would be great to use Scaffolding in order to create complete pages, like ASP.NET Dynamic Data sites, that include paging, sorting and search.

                • Make everything unit testable / Unit testing Classes in Framework

                  I like to unit test a lot of my code, but hate mocking HttpContextBase just do to the horror of using something like Moq. It would be great to have a part of ASP.Net that was dedicated to unit testing and had built it classes that made it super simple to create mocks without heavy setup in my tests.

                  Also just make everything virtual in ASP.Net so we can override any public behavior (maybe not as possible).

                  • Add IntelliSense for CSS Selectors

                    Can you add IntelliSense support for CSS selectors in stylesheets?

                    You can autocomplete all HTML tag names, all pseudo-classes (preferably with parameter hints) and pseudo-elements, and all IDs and classes that appear in other selectors in that or other stylesheets.

                          • In the copy web site box, allow me to compare two files.

                            Before (or instead of) copying a file from one site to another it would be very useful to be able to compare the two files to see what differences there are.

                              Hi BWK, we are currently investing to make the Web App project and Website publishing experience the same. We are bringing all the Web app project publish experience to Websites.

                              We are also interested in having a feature like you state on the Publish dialog. Since Copy Website is only for websites we are likely to invest in the compare feature for the publish dialog since it is shared with both Web app project and Websites.
