    Licensing for RadControls "Prometheus" for ASP.NET

    It seems that despite our best efforts to educate customers, we haven't done a great job at letting everyone know that: When you buy a RadControls for ASP.NET license, with subscription or not, you get a matching license for "Prometheus" controls and you can download the developer build of the controls from your account. It is up to you to decide whether you want to use the classic controls or the "Prometheus" ones. Everyone who buys an ASP.NET Subscription or a subscription license for the all-inclusive SKU (which includes all UI components for web and desktop development plus Telerik Reporting) gets "Prometheus" as a...

  • People running on Sitefinity!

    It's a fact (as of Monday to be precise) - the Telerik blogs are finally running on Sitefinity and we've got a new design for the blogs. It's actually more than just a design - we've done a lot to fix some of the layout weaknesses of the previous version of and to improve the overall user experience.

    Telerik licensing demystified

    Customers often ask if they need to purchase licenses just for the UI developers in their team or for all the devs on the team. The question is very common since most of our clients have large teams in which only a few of the team members work actively with UI controls and all the rest work with other parts of the solution. The question is so common that it was high time I blogged about it and gave our policy some extra publicity. The answer is always the same: “No, you just need to get a license for the devs who will be working on the UI....

    RadControls “Prometheus”: Beta, Futures, what’s the deal?

    With the pending update of RadControls "Prometheus" for ASP.NET quite a few customers have asked us whether it is safe to use Prometheus controls in production when the suite has a Beta tag. Before I answer the question, I’d like to add some background on what RadControls "Prometheus" is. RadControls “Prometheus” is the next generation of our ASP.NET product line. It’s built on top of ASP.NET AJAX and provides the richest, most powerful and fastest toolset for delivering rich ASP.NET applications. It has all of the benefits of the existing suite plus incredible performance improvements, great integration between all elements of the UI package and adds some amazing new components. This begs the question - if...
