ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 RC and Visual Studio SP1 released

I'd be remiss not to throw up a quick post about two big releases from Microsoft that affect most of us doing development with Telerik controls. Yesterday, Microsoft released Visual Studio SP1 and today they released the release candidate for ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 (the final release before the final, supported product ships). Scott Guthrie has great posts about both releases on his blog, but if you want to skip the introduction and go straight to the download you can follow these links:

Rumen Stankov has a good post on the telerik blogs regarding r.a.d.controls compatibility with this latest release. In short, the new RC will not work with the current Q3 SP3 r.a.d.controls release, but the Q4 2006 release (due next Wednesday) will deliver full support.

Looks like it will be a busy weekend installing SP1, downloading the latest ASP.NET AJAX and Toolkit releases, and playing with Aptana. Don't pretend you won't be doing it too.
