The Q1 2015 Beta of Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX is live and ready for test. You can download the Beta from here and also play with the live demos. The detailed release notes are available here.
Below are some of the most important additions:
Starting in Q1 2015, we will discontinue the support for the old Zip library (included in Telerik.Web.UI.dll) ,and its classes will be removed from the assembly.
To use the Zip Library in your application, you need to add a reference to the Telerik.Windows.Zip assembly, which is available in the AdditionalLibraries installation folder.
Also, the ZipPackage and ZipPackageEntry classes are obsolete; please use the new ones: ZipArchive and ZipArchiveEntry.
