Hi Alan,

Here's what I have on bundling in the upcoming update for ASP.NET 4.5.1:

1. Run the following package command:

Install-Package Microsoft.AspNet.Web.Optimization.WebForms
2. Open up your Global.asax file and at the top of the file, below the Import statement for the System.Net.Mail namespace, add the following Import statement:

<%@ Import Namespace="System.Web.Optimization" %>
3. In the Application_Start event handler in the same file, add the following code below the line that creates the ScriptResourceDefinition.

BundleTable.Bundles.Add(New StyleBundle("~/StyleSheets").
IncludeDirectory("~/Styles", "*.css"))
BundleTable.Bundles.Add(new StyleBundle("~/StyleSheets").
IncludeDirectory("~/Styles", "*.css"));
4. Open the Frontend master page and right before the closing <head> tag add the following code:
<webopt:bundlereference runat="server" path="~/StyleSheets" />
Hope this works for you too.
