Thanks for writing and for your questions. The beta release is focused on the new Visual Style Builder. It is included in this release and you can launch it by using the Start Menu and accessing the Telerik
folder or directly start it from our Demos Application which now shows demos only for it and for the new features in RadScheduler
However, the new Visual Style Builder is currently not shown when the user clicks on 'Open Theme Builder'
action of a control's Smart Tag. The reason for this behavior is that the controls still use themes designed by the old version of this tool. Old version themes cannot be used in the new Style Builder.
Currently, you can play with this tool, try to design your own themes and see how it works. We will be very grateful if you manage to send us feedback so that we can fine tune it and simplify the work with it for its official release.
I would also like to inform you, that we are going to update the Online Help adding some help articles regarding the new VSB. You will be able to access it as of the next week so that you can take a look at it.
I hope this is helpful. You can write back anytime you have further questions or need assistance.
All the best,
the Telerik team
