post here, his example uses WebControls (Repeater and Literal). Under his header "Implementing Our View Using Server Controls" his example references these controls in the CodeBehind page. I am unable to do this with
the release, the codebehind page cannot find the controls referenced anywhere. Shouldn't it be creating a MyView.designer.cs file like the standard Web Forms does?

I've experiencing the same problem. Regardless of the type of control I drop onto the ViewPage designer I cannot access any of them in the code-behind.

I just found a fix. Right click on your web project and select "Convert To Web Application" after every time you add a new view. ScottGu has confirmed this issue, and hopefully will be fixed in the next version.

Yes, this is an issue missing in the VS proj templates for the default pages (views). Basically the *.designer.cs file allows the Control ID's to become fields that you can program against in the code-behind. Although not well-named, the command listed above
"Convert to Web Application" should give you the designer file required.
