    Route Hijacking and custom ViewModels

    I'm using 7.6.4 and I'm sure a feature I've used in earlier versions is now missing - the ability to use custom ViewModels that don't inherit from RenderModel in a view.

    I'm sure this has worked previously:


       public class PersonViewModel
           public string FirstName {get; set;}
           public string LastName {get; set;}

    ... hijack the route with a controller then render the View:

    @model PersonViewModel
    <div>@Model.FirstName @Model.LastName</div>

    This no longer seems to work anymore and I'm being forced to make my ViewModels inherit from RenderModel, injecting the PublishedContent object and culture just to instantiate them.

    Pretty sure I created a whole site using the above method but I no longer have the code to prove it.

    Am I doing something wrong or has this feature been removed?
