Last year the ASP.NET team released a Sprite and Image Optimization Toolkit which allows ASP.NET web sites to be optimized for higher performance where applicable by merging images together and lowering the number of request the browser must make to serve a page. Microsoft just released a new version of the toolkit today with many enhancements including support for MVC 3 and Web Pages 1. Here is a short list of the updates:

  • Updated to support Web Pages 1 and MVC 3 (still support Web Forms as well)
  • No module registration required for machines with Web Pages 1 / MVC 3 installed, dropping assembly in BIN just works
  • Automatic namespace registration in Web Pages, dropping in BIN automatically registers the namespace
  • Fully updated documentation
  • Common helper between Web Pages and MVC 3
  • Many improvements and bug fixes since the last release

You can grab the new release via:
