In a blog post on the release, Scott Guthrie, corporate vice president of Microsoft .NET Developer Platform, said the new ASP.NET MVC V2 preview works with .NET 3.5 Service Pack 1 and Visual Studio 2008, and "can be installed side-by-side on the same machine as ASP.NET MVC 1.0."
Microsoft released an initial version of ASP.NET with MVC (model-view-controller) support in December 2007. MVC is an architectural pattern used primarily in the Java world, and perhaps used most famously in the Ruby on Rails framework. MVC decouples data access and business logic from data presentation and user interaction, by introducing a "controller" as an intermediate component.
