This release marks the first major Microsoft platform to see the light of day, but Microsoft's open-source stance has been softening for years http://sdt.bz/71227, most recently with the open-sourcing of the Roslyn C# compiler at Build 2014, and Monday's announcement on ASP.NET vNEXT as an open-source project under the banner of the.NET Foundation, Microsoft's newly announced organization driving its open-source ecosystem http://sdt.bz/70050. ASP.NEt is open source under the Apache 2.0 license.
