Before getting into what’s new in this release, let me share some hot news concerning our deployment procedures. Recently we loosened up our deployment requirements for the most commonly used deployment scenarios—commercial applications built with our controls. This will make your life easier and cut out a lot of extra work. If you're building such an application, you can simply set the Copy Local property of most (in fact all but one) of our assemblies and deploy them to your users. Note that some exceptions apply and you should always consult with the following article for the latest deployment requirements: Redistributing Telerik UI for WinForms. Of course, our support engineers will also be able to assist you if you have any questions.
As usual, not much longer after an official release, we're delivering our service pack. We've continued investing resources on improving our most used control—RadGridView. In this release alone, we’ve made over 120 improvements in the suite, 70 of which are in grid control itself.
Of course, with every service pack we also like to introduce a few new things and this one is no different. Here are some of the highlights:
The release is already available in your Telerik account. If you don’t have one, you can also download a trial here.
