Thoughts about migration to ASP.NET MVC 5?

So I have been reviewing the many changes coming in ASP.NET MVC 5 and ASP.NET Web API 2, and there seem to be some interesting features that would be valuable to Microsoft Orchard:
  • Attribute routing
  • Authentication filters
  • OAuth support
  • Filter overrides
Are there others already considering a move in this direction? If so, what efforts are under way, and would there be interest in starting such an effort?

Yes, all on the 4.5 branch :-)

Awesome! That branch seems to be a bit behind, but it is cool to know it is there. What is the time frame for moving over to 4.5? I remember that was a goal previously for 1.7...

It is doable on your own, just prepare to spend some time replacing everything ;)

We're running on 4.5 for a while now (using Orchard 1.6 as base).
