It’s that time of the year again and we’re getting ready for the next quarterly release here at telerik. This time we have a major visual update coming for the ASP.NET product line. Almost all skins will get a refresh – some a minor QA to bring back to original designs, others a more thorough facelift. Wanted to get back to you even before the beta release next week with a sneak view of what’s coming so you can have your say. Here’s the major planned changes in skinning:
All other skins will get the usual round of polishing/bug fixing. Much of our concern during the redesign has been preserving the general feel of our skins so that the new look fits in your existing applications. Ideally, we wanted to update the skins to keep them in line both with their original look and with the latest in interface design trends so that simply by upgrading an existing app you get a slicker look. We do realize in some cases visual discrepancies between the old and new look might be a nuisance, but we hope you will appreciate the fresher, more modern look.
