Q2 2008 delayed, due tomorrow

Well, there's nothing like eating crow after your first video update. I've been on the line with the teams in Bulgaria all morning and it appears the new Q2 2008 release will not be live until tomorrow. And while a one day delay is nothing compared to the delays some software projects have suffered, we hate to miss announced release targets. As it turns out, there was a last minute problem that our rigorous QA unearthed in the RadControls for WinForms and that is the cause for the delay. All other products- including the new controls for WPF and Silverlight- are ready to go and there is no question that everything will be live on the site tomorrow morning (US time). I apologize to those of you eagerly expecting the release today! While you wait, get a head-start on understanding the new features the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX by checking-out the already live Q2 2008 online demos.

Oh, that's too bad. I was camped out on the telerik site at midnight lastnight waiting...

Well, I'd rather wait a little longer nowing that it's for a good cause.

Thanks for the heads up and keeping us informed!

@Dave- Sorry for the trouble! You should find the new controls in your Client.net account tomorrow morning (if you're in the US).

Thanks for the heads-up!.. I'll stop hitting the F5 for now then.. Most interesting (to me) is an updated: http://www.telerik.com/products/aspnet-ajax/release-history.aspx

Btw, if one live in Honolulu, Hawaii - you might still make it :-)

Hello Todd,

No trouble at all... just eager as always to play with new toys.

Hey, one quick question; why don't you use the telerik control "radEditor" for our use when adding a comment here? We could ... or I should say... "I" could use the spell and grammer checker when I "think" I'm done.... --grin--

Thanks for a great site and keeping us informed.

@Dave- Good question. This blog is currently run on Google's Blogger platform, so I don't have complete control over the tools (otherwise I'd definitely offer RadGrid). Eventually this blog will find its way to Sitefinity, but until then, we're stuck with Blogger's somewhat limited commenting tools. Thanks for using them!

Hello,

As I am waiting only for ASP.Net Q2, I wonder why everything is delayed for another product.

Better being late then being buggy! :D

Hey Todd, I am downloading Q2 AJAX controls, but my other ASP.net controls still say Q1 with no download option, I have a full subscription...are the other downloads not ready yet?

Todd Anglin said...

@Gregory- When Telerik releases a new Q release, we like to bring everything to the site at once to avoid questions like...

@Brett- You should see your downloads for all of the new bits now. The license update process takes a few hours, but all updates should be ready now. Enjoy!
