Q4 2006 SP2 due this week

It has been about 5 weeks since the first service pack for the Q4 2006 release, and now it's time for SP2. In years past, now would be the time where we start to turn up the volume on the first release of 2007, but with the new release schedule there will be more time between releases and in turn more service packs.

Little is known about SP2 at this point, but there are some details about what we can expect to see floating around the forums:

  • New r.a.d.grid ValidationSettings section
    • Will introduce three new validation related properties to grid
  • Bug fixes for r.a.d.grid, including ClientCheckBox 'select all' problem
  • New support for hierarchical data binding to business objects
    • Affects treeview, panelbar, and menu
  • Bug fixes for r.a.d.upload and a new file input tooltip feature
  • r.a.d.combobox SelectedIndexChanged bug fixes
  • Updates to r.a.d.chart documentation (maybe)
  • New "spell provider" property for r.a.d.editor (maybe)
And that's about it. I'm sure there will be plenty of bug fixes across all of the radControls, but we'll have to wait for the official SP2 release for more details. Stay tuned, though, Q4 SP2 is only days away!
