First of all I should assure you that the old rendering is still available, so all your custom styles and complicated scenarios with RadInput will still work.

    Volume Mixer with the new shiny RadSlider for Silverlight and WPF

    As you may already know, we are working hard to improve the RadSlider in a broad way. We've fixed a lot of issues, but also added a lot of new cool features.
