r.a.d.controls for WinForms SP1 released

While telerik didn't ship the expected r.a.d.controls for ASP.NET SP1 last week, they did manage to get SP1 for the Q4 2006 WinForms out the door. SP1 delivers many performance improvements and bug fixes for the WinForms controls and continues to build on the big Q4 release (which included 2 new controls and many new features). Full release notes for this service pack are available here.

Telerik's WinForms controls don't get nearly as much coverage on Telerik Watch as they should, but the industry is still taking note. Vassil Terziev, Telerik Co-CEO, announced on the telerik blogs today that the WinForms controls have been nominated as finalists in the 2007 SIIA Codie Awards in the "Best Software Development Solution" category. If you do any WinForms development, you should definitely give the r.a.d.controls for WinForms a test drive (you might even win a trip to Hawaii)!
