First Service Pack for RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX released

About a month ago (hard to believe that much time has already passed) Telerik released the big Q1 2008 RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX. By many standards, it was one of the most successful releases in Telerik's short history, shipping right on time with relatively few problems. But even great releases need to be serviced, so today we're shipping the first Service Pack for the Q1 2008 release. The SP1 release, as usual, is loaded with fixes for all of the RadControls and it also packs-in a few handy new features, too. The full release notes are available online, but for those too busy to look now, here are some highlights:

  • Over 20 fixes and 8 new "features" for RadGrid
  • 19 fixes for RadEditor and several improved dialogs
  • New client-side "click" events in RadMenu and RadPanelbar
  • New client-side enable/disable methods in RadTabStrip
  • Change to modal RadWindow behavior- Escape will now not close the window
The one obvious "gotcha" to look out for in this SP release is a breaking change in RadTabStrip. Specifically, the "ReoderTabsOnSelect" property has been changed to "ReorderTabsOnSelect" to fix the obvious typo. Otherwise, this SP should be safe to apply to your projects and begin testing for roll-out to your Prod environments. Hopefully the new fixes and features will suite your needs 'til the next big release- Q2 is quickly approaching, you know!
