Enter Supervising Presenter, exit MVP

This june I wrote about how we used model reference data and the Model-View-Presenter pattern in a WinForms container control with pluggable views. What I did not say was that we did not implement pure MVP, but rather a modified version that fitted better with WinForms data binding and object data sources.

Just about the same time in june, Martin Fowler retired the MVP pattern for just about the same reasons, and the new data binding friendly pattern is the Supervising Controller. The MVP pattern has actually been split in two, the other pattern being the Passive View.

So if you're still using MVP, be sure to catch up on the new patterns.
