Q2 2008 road maps updated for WinForms, Reporting

As you are probably aware, we are quickly approaching Telerik's second major release for the year. Scheduled to drop in late July, Q2 2008 is mere weeks away, and as the release draws near, it's time to start looking at the goods we've been working on for the last 3 months. To get get things started, we've just updated the public road maps for the RadControls for WinForms and Telerik Reporting. While a little later than we normally like to publish these details, the road maps do shed some interesting light on what you can expect to find in the Q2 release for these two products. Here are the highlights:

RadControls for WinForms

  • New! Multi-column RadComboboxes
  • New! RadApplicationMenu for RadRibbonBar
  • RadGridView: Support for multi-column headers
  • RadGridView: Improved Export To Excel (performance improvements)
  • RadMenu: Refactored for huge performance improvements
  • RadCarousel: Incredible new Visual Studio designer
  • RadCarousel: Support for auto-looping items
Telerik Reporting
  • New! Cross tab report support
  • New! Bar code report items
  • New! Checkbox report items
  • New! Telerik Reporting Project Upgrade Wizard
  • Improved Ajax integration in WebViewer
  • Improve Crystal Reports conversion engine
Clearly, we've been busy! To see all the details, visit the Telerik Reporting and RadControls for WinForms road maps and then watch for the release soon. We'll be updating the ASP.NET road map later this week, so stay tuned for a primer on what you can expect to find in ASP.NET's Q2 release.

I would also be interested in seeing which bugs have been fixed for this release.

I would be interested to find out when there will be a report designer which can be distributed and the ability to load/save reports to RDL or XML files???

Todd Anglin said...

@Morten- The full release notes for the release will be available soon. That's the best place to see which bugs have fixed. At present, I don't have the condensed list handy.

@Simon- An end-user report designer is definitely a popular request. Tune-in after the Q2 release for some more announcements on that front.

Reporting roadmap puts CrossTab for Q3 release. Not in Q2.

Todd Anglin said...

@Dušan- That's because there was a change in the road map after I published this post. The Reporting Team was planning on delivering Cross Tab support in Q2, but they hit some obstacles delayed the feature. It will definitely be in Q3. Sorry for the confusion.
