Microsoft released Asp.Net MVC3 tools update

Microsoft has released a new update for Asp.Net MVC3. This update won’t update the MVC3 runtime, it only updates the tooling for MVC3 and this also installs NuGet v1.2 (NuGet is a Visual Studio extension that makes it easy to add, remove, and update libraries and tools in Visual Studio projects that use the .NET Framework). You can download the MVC3 tools update from here.
