Version 2 of MS Web Platform Installer Now Available
Microsoft has just released the latest version of their Web Platform Installer and Web Application Gallery.

The beta for version 2 has been out since March, adding a community version of PHP and ASP.NET MVC 1 to an already full list of applications. New web applications that could be downloaded included Umbraco and Silverstripe Web CMS.

With today's release of the WPI, you will also get the Windows Azure SDK to get you started on those cloud-based applications and the IIS Media Pack.

Some of the latest additions to the Web Application Gallery include learning management system Moodle, Sitefinity web content management and Kentico Web CMS among many others.
