Back in January, I brought your attention to some quiet news on the Telerik.com website regarding changes to the pricing for RadControls for ASP.NET and WinForms. We now have official clarification on the upcoming pricing changes thanks to a recent blog post from Telerik Co-CEO Vassil Terziev.
For the full details about how the licensing and pricing are changing, I encourage you to read Vassil's post. In it he spells out all of the changes to licenses and pricing, and he answers a handful of questions I sent him last week regarding this new information. For those that don't want to read, here is the bottom line (or rather, bottom lines):
- If you own a RadControls subscription license by April 20th, you get RadControls for ASP.NET, RadControls for WinForms, and Telerik Reporting and all their updates until your current subscription expires
- When it comes time to renew, you can pick the subscription level you want to renew for the next year. To keep all of the controls and reporting, your early renewal will be $649 (just $150 more than the current $499 renewal).
