Q2 2008 SP1 available for ASP.NET, WinForms, Reporting (update)

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago on Telerik Watch Minute (see, it pays to watch), today Telerik shipped the first round of service packs for three of the major products: RadControls ASP.NET, WinForms, and Telerik Reporting. If you've had any nagging issues with Q2 2008, odds are that they're addressed in this release. Plus, there's some fun new stuff in this release, too, so even if you aren't having trouble, there's good reason to upgrade. Here are some Q2 2008 SP1 highlights:
