New and enhanced productivity tools and components help developers embrace evolving technology future
WALTHAM, MA, JULY 13, 2011 – Telerik, an end-to-end provider of software application lifecycle and content management solutions, today unveiled the newest milestone release to its award-winning developer productivity tools portfolio. The Q2 2011 release addresses the shifting technology landscape and features a host of rich tools and enhancements spanning a variety of technologies, including HTML5, XAML, WinForms, and Windows Phone 7. Among the highlights of the release are the addition of the “Metro” theme to Telerik’s RadControls for Silverlight and WPF, and a new profiler for OpenAccess ORM. Each of the upgrades and improvements is designed to deliver the top-quality functionality and flexibility developers need to excel in the rapidly evolving technology arena.
“The software development ecosystem is at somewhat of a crossroads – as new platforms and technologies continue to emerge at a rapid pace, developers are increasingly challenged when trying to determine which path will lead them to the greatest success,” said Svetozar Georgiev, CEO, Telerik. “Telerik’s role in this shifting paradigm is to help users effectively embrace what is a hard-to-predict technology future. By actively investing in and delivering adaptable, robust, and best-in-class solutions, we ensure developers will be well prepared for any eventual future, no matter which way they choose to go.”
Making its debut in Telerik’s RadControls for Silverlight, WPF, and WinForms suites is the new Metro theme, a clean interpretation of Microsoft’s new design standard found on platforms like Windows Phone. With its release, developers can immediately begin implementing the Metro theme in their applications. An array of new and upgraded high-quality, high-performance tools and controls are also being introduced across Telerik’s RadControls portfolio, such as:
Telerik’s latest release also brings significant additions to Telerik’s data access framework, OpenAccess ORM, including a new profiler tool, which eliminates the common “black box” problem associated with ORM frameworks. With support for SQL visualization, performance deficiency analysis and detection, key behavior summary values, and log sorting, filtering, and grouping, the profiler helps developers quickly understand and optimize data operations powered by OpenAccess. Other improvements include greater support for multiple database back-ends and more powerful Fluent API functionality for code-first data development.
The Q2 2011 milestone release marks the commercial debut of JustTrace, a .NET performance and memory-profiling tool. With support for IIS and Windows services, and memory, sample, and tracing profile optimizations, JustTrace offers easy .NET application profiling. Additional enhancements being rolled out across Telerik’s .NET productivity line include:
