Yes, this change was made for the Prometheus version of our controls. Now, all controls, including the standard ASP.NET controls could be Ajax-ified with the usage of RadAjaxManager and RadAjaxPanel.
If you have further questions or problems while using our control, please open a formal support ticket and add brief explanation of the problem.
All the best,
the Telerik team
