Indeed, as the forum thread you linked states, we will be consolidating the Kendo UI and Telerik MVC Extensions product lines in the near future, for two main reasons:
- give you the advantages of the pure client-side HTML5/JS desktop and mobile development
- combine the above with the features available in the ASP.NET MVC framework
At this juncture I am not able to disclose any official information on this topic, however expect a formal announcement at the very end of this month. It will go out simultaneously with the Beta release of Kendo UI ASP.NET MVC server wrappers, followed by the official release of these wrappers in the middle of July.
We are also committed to provide a comprehensive migration path (as part of the docs) for all Telerik MVC Extensions users who would like to migrate their existing code to Kendo UI for ASP.NET MVC. Kendo UI for ASP.NET MVC will be the product that is recommended for new MVC development and actively developed in the future.
Stand by for more information in a few weeks.
