I know that some of you, fellow developers, are enjoying the hot summer days and took well-deserved vacations during this period of the year - spending them by the beach with an icy cocktail in hand and getting bronze tan. And I envy you a little for that :) But here, in the Telerik HQ, the working cycle constantly spins no matter what the odds and the weather are, and the time has come to share with you our AJAX and MVC Q3 2011 plans. roadmap5

AJAX Roadmap (View)

Quick highlights

  • Two new controls: Social Share and Org Chart
  • New Metro skin (preview can be downloaded from here)
  • Integrated OData support for all navigation controls
  • Accessibility/mobile browsers enhancements
  • Partial zoom, better cropping capabilities and keyboard support for the new image editor
  • jQuery ajax WCF binding, percentage size and sound on display for the newly introduced notification
  • A bunch of new features for the editor, grid, scheduler and ribbon bar

MVC Roadmap (View)

Quick highlights

  • New Metro skin
  • Two new series types - Pie and XY (Scattered) - for the MVC chart extension
  • Mouse over effects, tooltips and animations when interacting with the chart
  • Keyboard support for the html editor
  • Column chooser, foreign-key column (with dropdown editor) and custom commands for the grid extension

Hope that you will enjoy what we will be delivering for the next major installment of the Telerik ASP.NET web stack! Until then have fun developing web applications with our components, and watch out for the Q3 2011 Beta releases in late October.
