When was MVC1, 2, 3 and 4 released.
Looks like MVC 2 is part of VS 2010 amd MVC 4 is part of 2012.
Can any one give me some clarification on these releases ? Will they release as part of VS or seperate releases ?

They are all essentially about a year apart and are released on a separate release cycle than VS.

MVC3 was separate of VS2010.
MVC4 is part of VS2012 - but can be installed separately on VS2010 too.

MVC releases are separate from Visual Studio. Generally they are separate from .net releases, though sometimes depend on a .net release. Unlike visual studio, MVC is an open source project (so nightly builds are avaiiable). also MVC does not depend on Visual
Studio, but usually has VS templates. The current release (MVC 4) works with vs 2010 sp1, but the fall preview requires vs 2012.
here is the MVC source is you want to build it yourself:
to build you need server 2012 or windows 8, vs 2012, and GIT (source control)
note: the last git commit was 4 days ago. you may want to track MVC changes (best way to tell whats happening), or fix a bug and make a pull request.
