I have a MVC2 project, my question is: should I migrate to MVC3? Why?

I'd like the opinion of some who already migrated, or at least used MVC3 and MVC2.

Already read http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2011/01/13/announcing-release-of-asp-net-mvc-3-iis-express-sql-ce-4-web-farm-framework-orchard-webmatrix.aspx

and I already know about the described tool for migrating: Link

What I'd really appreciate is your valuable insight.

Best regards.

The most compelling reason why I switched, was the razor view engine. It's just so beautiful to read and easier on your fingers. It turns spaghetti views, into elegant simple to parse terse code.

Check out the ASP.Net MVC3 tag on StackOverflow.

Specifically - Does razor syntax provide a compelling advantage in UI markup?


A big plus for me is MvcScaffolding. See Scaffold your ASP.NET MVC 3 project with the MvcScaffolding package
