Orchard CMS - ASP.NET MVC 5 Web API 2 and Razor 3

Just a friendly reminder to other Orchard Web Developers that the upcoming Orchard 1.8 will be running on Microsoft .NET 4.5 Framework, ASP.NET MVC 5, ASP.NET Web API 2, and Razor 3! I am converting numerous Orchard modules and building new modules using the new Orchard Source 1.x bits going forward to take advantages of these changes.

I've already mentioned building a couple of new modules using Orchard 1.8 and Infoset:

I don't know for sure if Orchard 1.8 will be converted to Visual Studio 2013. I haven't experienced any problems with Visual Studio 2013, but I have clients and peers who mention it has been buggy and slow for them.

Conclusion

If you find yourself with free time over the holidays, you can find me on Google+ and Twitter. I also write a lot of Orchard Tutorials.
