Telerik Announces Landmark Q2 2008 Release

    One-stop Shop for Superior .NET UI Solutions

    NEWTON, Massachusetts, Aug. 4 /CNW/ - Telerik, a leading vendor of tools
and components for .NET, is excited to announce the Q2 release of its
RadControls suites for ASP.NET AJAX, Windows Forms, WPF, and Silverlight, and
its .NET Reporting solution. Telerik introduces two new suites, optimizations
across all products, and valuable training resources. Leveraging the power of
Microsoft platforms, Telerik reinforces its position as an industry leader.

    New Products:

    Building on its expertise in interface development, in Q2 Telerik
presents two new component suites-RadControls for WPF and RadControls for
Silverlight 2 Beta. The controls for Silverlight and WPF are derived from the
same codebase and share the same API, which is completely in-line with
Microsoft's approach, and ensures decreased learning periods.
    RadControls for WPF is a natural addition to Telerik's portfolio that
includes a unique Windows Forms suite with WPF-like effects. RadControls for
WPF are engineered for great performance through lightning fast databinding
and smart use of UI and data virtualization. The controls are truly lookless,
Expression Blend-stylable, and ship with ready-to-use themes.
    Telerik also introduces RadControls for Silverlight 2 Beta-a
comprehensive suite of 17 controls bringing style and interactivity to any
application. Just like their WPF counterparts, the Telerik Silverlight
controls employ innovative performance boosting techniques and provide for
effortless skinning through Expression Blend.

    Training Resources:

    Highly praised for its technical support, in Q2 Telerik introduces two
valuable resources. The Telerik Trainer-an advanced interactive multimedia
tool combining video training and hands-on coding, and Telerik TV-an online
library of showcase videos of real applications built with Telerik's tools.

    Performance Optimizations:

    RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX gained acclaim for their robustness and
unmatched performance. With Q2, the suite reinforces its position as the
preferred toolset for building rich web applications. Q2 introduces a new
RadRotator offering great client-side control and cross-browser support, and
important optimizations for all controls.
    RadControls for WinForms bridge the learning gap between the Windows
Forms and WPF technologies by incorporating spectacular effects like
animations, rotation, and transparency. Q2 features a new Multi-Column
ComboBox and ApplicationMenu, in addition to major improvements in the
Carousel, Grid, Form and Menu controls.
    Telerik Reporting Q2 offers high-level improvements to facilitate the
development of large Business Intelligence projects. Among its major additions
are: Barcode Item, Checkbox Item, Project Upgrade Wizard, updated report
convertors, and support for ASP.NET AJAX.
