Looking Ahead: Q3 Road Maps posted for WinForms, Silverlight, WPF

With Q2 2008 soundly behind us, it's time to turn our attention to the quickly approaching Q3 2008 release. The next (and last) release for 2008 is currently scheduled to ship in early November, so we're less than 10 weeks away from another major Telerik release. The Q3 release is going to be a big one, too! There's a number of big things happening around the time of Q3- a few of which shall remain "secret" until a later date- but we can talk today about the plans for the RadControls for WinForms, Silverlight, and WPF.
The public road maps for all of these suites have been updated on, but since I like to make your lives as easy as possible, here are some highlights:
RadControls for WinForms
  • New! RadScheduler for WinForms
  • New! RadPrompt and RadConfirm for WinForms
  • Major improvements in RadGridView
    • Multi-row column headers
    • Cell merge/span
    • Optimized support for 100's of columns
  • Major refactoring in RadDock
  • Performance improvements across entire theming engine
RadControls for Silverlight
  • New! RadGrid for Silverlight (ported from WPF version)
  • New! RadTimePicker, RadDock, and RadContextMenu for Silverlight
  • New drag-and-drop manager for all controls
  • New animation framework for all controls
  • New theming engine for all controls
  • Vastly expanded documentation and examples
RadControls for WPF
  • New! RadScheduler for WPF
  • New! RadChart and RadGauges for WPF
  • New themes for all controls
  • Expanded documentation and new demo framework (a.k.a. QSF)
Check out the road map links below for more details and then stay tuned for more details on the ASP.NET AJAX, Sitefinity, and Reporting road maps for Q3.
