    I have found a serious bug in the new release. I have attached the example project as well. 

    Run the project using the set of DLLs which are there in the bin/debug folder. 

    There are Three columns in the GridView. Second column is set to invisible (isVisible = false). But when you run the project you can see second column is visible. Although the Header is empty. you can't resize the column. it just sit there.

    One thing I figured it out that if I don;t set the width property of other columns it looks fine. But as you play with the Width or MinWidth property of column it will display the hidden column.

    It was not happening before. These Telerik dll we got from the RadControls_for_WPF35_2011_1_0315_Dev.msi Setup.

    The same issue is happening in silverlight as well. Let me know if you have any trouble in reproducing it.

    I don't find any way to attach the sample project. so just pasting the code here. Name the project as "HiddenColumns". There are two files MainWindow.xaml and MainWindow.xaml.cs

            Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525">
            <Controls:RadGridView x:Name="_mainGrid" SelectionUnit="FullRow" SelectionMode="Single">
