U4-6903 - Make MVC5 the default that Umbraco ships with

Created by Sebastiaan Janssen 30 Jul 2015, 15:25:19 Updated by Sebastiaan Janssen 31 Jul 2015, 10:10:50

  • MVC4 is really old now and no longer actively maintained, with MVC5 installed we can keep up with their updates
  • There's no proper support for MVC4 views in Visual Studio 2015
  • Attribute routing is a nice feature
  • Better performance
  • Sits well next to the WebAPI2 upgrade that we're doing anyway
