I think telerik is going loose the momentum, and they are not listening to the developer community, but only listening to the business people.
It might be on a roadmap somewhere, but I doubt seriously MVC will be addressed this year. There are simply too many other high priority items on the agenda.
As I already mentioned, the audience for this technology is still comparatively small. I know Luke mentioned that "most developers know MVC", but we have access to sales statistics (we have an MVC product) and research on this subject. MVC may or may not be the next big thing, but if you want to engage with most .NET developers then this is not a good choice today. Consequently, we are listening to the developer community.
I like the idea of supporting both approaches, but I have no idea how that would work. Either way, in 2011 o
ur focus will be spent on adding functionality to Sitefinity.
Here a few of the things on the 2011 roadmap:
- Advanced Analytics
- Improved mobile support
- A/B testing, multi-variant testing
- Marketing automation
Features like these solve modern business challenges that organizations are struggling with. MVC, by contrast, is simply an alternate way to do what we already do. It's not a good use of time when contrasted with these other tasks. It won't empower organizations do anything they aren't already doing. Furthermore, we're likely to alienate lots of developers in the process.
