RadControls for Silverlight beta 2 released

While Telerik has been busy releasing service packs for the "production" products this week, the Silverlight team has also been busy releasing an update of their own. On Tuesday, Telerik released a new beta for the Silverlight controls (that's RadControls for Silverlight 2 beta 2 for those keeping track). With the official release of the Silverlight 2 plug-in imminent, this will probably be the final beta release from Telerik before the RadControls for Silverlight get a v1 release. And this release is no slouch. Here are some highlights from the release notes:

  • New! RadTimePicker control for adding time picker functionality to Silverlight 
  • New! RadExpander control (this is essentially a sliding content panel control)
  • Significantly updated documentation
  • Tons of bug fixes and improvements across all existing controls
Check out the complete release notes for all of the nitty-gritty detail and then download the latest beta from your accounts. The Silverlight controls will be "official" soon enough, so keep sending us your feedback so we can have a solid v1 release!
