We're excited to announce that you can now update your apps to the latest Q3 2015 SP1 (ver. 2015.3.1111) release for UI for ASP.NET AJAX. There are lots of great improvements here which we're happy to share. You can download the new release either from your Telerik.com account or via the Telerik Control Panel, and you can check out the release notes here.
What are the Benefits for You
- Stability—the main purpose of the service pack is to reduce the count of the known bugs and to make the suite stable.
- Accessibility Improvements—WAI-ARIA support for RadAutoCompleteBox plus bug fixing in existing controls.
- Private NuGet Server and Feed—This useful option had been introduced first for UI for ASP.NET MVC, as explained in the Q3 2015 release blog post of Kendo UI. Now it's also available for UI for ASP.NET AJAX. This allows you to reference, download and extract UI for ASP.NET AJAX via its NuGet package directly from your Visual Studio, without having to log into your Telerik account.
To be able to download and install the Telerik AJAX NuGet package from your Visual Studio, go to Tools -> NuGet Package Manager -> Package Manager Settings -> Package Sources and press the "+" button. Then create a new Telerik NuGet Package source with the following URL: https://nuget.telerik.com/nuget.

Click OK to close the dialog. The next step is to load/create a new Web Forms project. This will allow you to open the config manager shown in Figure 2 from Tools -> NuGet Package Manager -> "Manages NuGet Packages for solution." Then you can select the UI for ASP.NET AJAX NuGet Package and install it.
