So much to blog about and so little time... It has been almost a couple of months since my last blog post and there were quite a few things to comment - new initiatives, interesting updates, participation in events, etc. For some reason I felt guilty for having so much to say and not blogging about it and I was looking for "THE blog post" to get back into the game:)
Luckily for me, and for all telerik customers, the dev team came up with some pretty exciting news - with a great sense of pride we are happy to announce the first major third-party component suite that offers Atlas support. As of the 1st of May r.a.d.controls SP2 (aka the "The Mighty Atlas") release, all telerik controls play nicely with Atlas. Now all r.a.d.controls work inside atlas:UpdatePanel and can successfully update atlas:UpdatePanels when used as atlas triggers. Just in case you are interested in getting more details on the other improvements in SP2, here's the link to the Release Notes: http://www.telerik.com/VersionNotes.aspx?Id=377
[EDIT 05/08/2006] You can check our http://www.telerik.com/atlas
for more information on the Atlas support in our r.a.d.controls product line.
p.s. I will soon post some additional information regarding the differences of Microsoft Atlas and telerik's own AJAX offering. Both have their strong points but the good thing is that customers don't really have to make a choice - they can use the r.a.d.controls with our AJAX framework or with Atlas and there won't be any nasty surprises.
