    Telerik XAML Controls Q3 2009 Release

    November 10, 2009 Share
      It has been another quarter for the XAML teams here at Telerik. During this time we worked on producing new tools and significant new features demanded by our customers.

In this release we included lots of new tools, including navigational controls, like RibbonBar(Silverlight WPF), OutlookBar(Silverlight WPF); rich UI(visual) components like TileView(Silverlight WPF), Book, Map; Commands support with our Button controls(Silverlight WPF).

    Sorting, Filtering, Grouping and Aggregating on all CPU cores using RadGridView for WPF and PLINQ

    September 23, 2009 Share
    As some of you may already know the Q2 release of RadGridView for WPF ships with a brand new “data engine” entirely based on LINQ.
