Telerik Registers Exponential Growth of Its Portfolio
Newton, MA, November 7, 2008 - Telerik, a leading vendor of developer tools and user interface components for .NET, is excited to announce the Q3 2008 release of its RadControls UI components and Report designer. With the new volume, Telerik registers significant growth in its developer tools portfolio by adding an enterprise-grade ORM product and a rich suite of components for Silverlight, thus making it the widest product line on the market.
RadControls for Silverlight
Following its exceptional track record in UI component development, Telerik is proud to officially present RadControls for Silverlight - the richest set of components for next-generation RIA and line-of-business applications. Running against Microsoft Silverlight 2 RTW, the suite will help you deliver super interactive, robust and responsive Web applications. The great performance of the components is guaranteed by the smart use of UI and data virtualization, and by the built-in Load on Demand mechanism, which results in significant performance gains when working with heavy data. Furthermore the suite introduces unique Page Navigation and Drag & Drop Frameworks, which additionally extend the capabilities of the Silverlight platform. RadControls for Silverlight are fully stylable through Microsoft Expression Blend. Thanks to its full interoperability with ASP.NET AJAX, RadControls for Silverlight can also be used to enhance existing web applications. Moreover, RadControls for Silverlight also share the same codebase and API with RadControls for WPF, guaranteeing synchronized future development.

Another manifestation of Telerik’s urge to offer complete developer solutions is the newly-acquired ORM product OpenAccess – an enterprise-grade tool, used by large companies in very demanding scenarios. Supporting both forward and reverse mapping, it offers transparent persistence for your DAL and business objects. OpenAccess ORM provides tight Visual Studio integration and allows you to easily create database independent code. At the same time, advanced techniques like multi-level caching and fetch plans deliver substantial performance optimizations. Now that the product is part of Telerik’s portfolio it will undergo further improvements with respect to usability and overall developer experience.

RadControls for WPF
Q3 2008 release of RadControls for WPF concentrates on rich data visualization and interactivity by introducing powerful and completely stylable charting, gauge and scheduling controls. Through powerful rendering, rich data binding support and attractive animations the new additions to the suite take data visualization to another level. New valuable resources that demonstrate how you can create visually rich, data driven UI with RadControls for WPF are also available.

RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX
The ASP.NET AJAX suite further establishes its position as the preferred and most mature toolset for building rich and responsive web applications. One of the focal points is that RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX are now able to work in the new Microsoft ASP.NET MVC framework. Plenty of blog posts and examples are available to educate customers on how to use Telerik ASP.NET AJAX controls as pure client-side components in this environment. Much attention was devoted to improving the usability experience and the client-side behavior of our most prominent components – RadGrid and RadScheduler. Due to the integration with the newly-acquired OpenAccess ORM, important data access capabilities were delivered to all databound controls. Styling the Telerik web controls will be a much easier task thanks to the new Skin Manager.

RadControls for WinForms
The axis of the new release is the new RadScheduler control, which offers rich Outlook®-style functionality with swift performance, simplified deployment and limitless customization capabilities. Another essential addition to the Telerik WinForms suite is the ability to apply advanced Rich Text formatting to all products. RadGridView now has Multi-Row Header Views, which deliver pivot-like data presentation. The theming mechanism has also been enhanced to offer Themes Color Blending, which similarly to the Silverlight themes can easily create color variations of existing themes.

The new engine has been developed to meet the exhaustive needs of business customers for first-rate performance and data presentation. Customers are now able to upgrade their Reporting projects with no effort due to the official release of the Project Upgrade Wizard, supports all previous and future versions of Telerik Reporting.
