David Ebbo shows how to use the buddy class mechanism (associated metadata class) that we have in Dynamic Data applications with TypeDescriptor.

David Ebbo released the 2.4 version of his cool T4MVC. Among the changes in this release:

- support for views in subfolders
- support for [ActionName] attributes
- new parameter-less overload for all actions
- support for placing T4MVC.tt below the application root
