We’ve just uploaded the Q2 2013 Service Pack 1 of Telerik’s ASP.NET controls and you can log into your Telerik’s account and download it.

The complete release notes are available here, but for those too busy to look now, the highlights are listed below:

  • New features:
    • Provided is support for Visual Studio 2013.
      Note that there is a well known issue of VS13, which is already reported to Microsoft Connect here and here. The problem is that any call to WebResource.axd returns an empty response, which breaks RadControls. The VS13 development team has promised to fix it, but until that there are a few workarounds that can be used to avoid the bug:
      • Disable VS13 Browser Link feature by clicking on the Browser Link combo button on the Standard toolbar and unchecking "Enable Browser Link"
      • Or disable the debugging <compilation debug="false"> 
      • Or use RadStyleSheetManager.
    • Exposed is a reference to RadTreeView in the RadDropDownTree control, which makes the DropdownTree very flexible for customization
    • Implemented is a new SearchBox’s HighlightFirstMatch property, which automatically highlights the first match in the drop down when set
    • Introduced is a mechanism for reverting back to the old RadEditor’s Indent/Outdent, Align and Insert Ordered/Unordered lists commands.
    • Added is support for setting persistence of RadTileList using Telerik’s ASP.NET Persistence Framework
  • Highly requested improvements and fixes in the PDF export engine:
    • Text wrapping
    • Support for default PDF viewers of Windows 8 and iOS mobile devices
    • FIPS standard compliance
  • More than 20 fixes for RadGrid, including improvements to the Batch editing mechanism
  • 13 fixes for RadEditor, 1 new feature and 1 improvement
