Happy New Year everyone! The time has come to get another round of Telerik ASP.NET service packs that add more power to your web development arsenal. This is especially true for the Telerik Q3 2010 SP1 MVC release that delivers official MVC 3 RTM/NuGet package manager support. What is more, starting with this SP release, you will be able to switch the live Telerik MVC demos from WebForms to Razor view engine using a button hosted within the source code viewer: MVC3_logo

Thus you can very easily explore how the view will look like using WebForms or Razor templates coding techniques. The source code of the upgraded Telerik MVC live demos is available as a separate download under your Telerik accounts and will be integrated as part of the commercial and open source distributions starting Q1 2011.

And to get you even more excited, due to these special circumstances, we are shipping Q3 2010 SP1 release for both the commercial and open source Telerik MVC packages. Nice, ah? More blog posts with details about our MVC3-ready service pack release will follow this week, so stay tuned! As usual, the release notes and online demos are available at your disposal.

I will not forget to present you with the highlights of the Q3 2010 SP2 AJAX release which has been published under in trial and dev formats. Here they are:

  • (mobile) Introduced useRoundedHints option in TouchScrollExtender, improved performance, allowed multitouch gestures in it
  • (combobox) Basic WAI-ARIA support and a new property - EnableAriaSupport
  • (editor) ConvertToXhtml filter improvements
  • (grid) New property (EnableSplitHeaderText, defaults to true) to enable or disable splitting of header text when we have autogenerated columns
  • (menu) Client methods for handling the OuterCssClass property of RadMenu
  • (stylesheet manager) Support for multiple external style sheet folders

I hope that you will be pleased with these new additions, more goodies are yet to be delivered for the Q1 2011 milestone... so get ready :)
