I am developing some functionality that relies on NuGet packages which in turn have dependencies on ASP.NET MVC 5 (v. 5.20 to be exact). Is there a way I can simply substitute the ASP.NET MVC 5 assemblies into my SItefinity project and have everything work? I am pretty familiar with how to update the Web.config files to support newer versions of ASP.NET MVC, so I just need to know if Sitefinity can support ASP.NET MVC 5 since it still ships with MVC 4 assemblies.
If it cannot currently support MVC 5, is there a timeline when MVC 5 support will be available considering that MVC 6 is already on the very near horizon?
Is there any Change on this subject as of now?
I am interested to use Visual Studio 2015 and its SignalR Support along with ASP.NET 4.6 / 5 features.
Can I upgrade the Sitefinity latest version 8 Project to ASP.NET 4.6, will this work?
