The new MS Office and SharePoint release is just around the corner, and I want to assure everyone that we will provide full support for SP 2010 in our next RadControls release - Q2 2010. We have already put up a page with information about the new SP release. You can find all the information you need at the SharePoint product page on our site. In this post I will talk about the ASP.NET AJAX controls, but as you will see on the product page, we will also offer support for our Silverlight UI controls.
The most important thing I want to share is that the RadEditor for MOSS product will updated for the 2010 version and you can already get a beta version from your account (provided you have a license for the ASP.NET AJAX controls). We still have some work to do in the WCM scenario, but the Content Editor Web Part and Lists scenarios work as expected. The editor will use the .NET 3.5 version of RadControls (as opposed to .NET 2.0 in MOSS 2007) and you no longer will need to make manual modifications to the web.config files of the WFE serveres, because SP 2010 is already AJAX enabled. The 2010 version of the editor will be 6.x, and the 2007 version (5.x) will continue to be updated for some time with new RadControls releases as well. This means that you should not worry if you don't plan to upgrade to the new SharePoint version from the start.
Finally, I am happy to announce that our plans also include a new grid web part that will leverage the RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX control.We will disclose more information about it when we get close to the Q2 2010 RadControls release so stay tuned!
