In our official major release Q2 2011 we introduced several new controls - RadPropertyGridRadListView and RadRichTextBox (Beta) - which nicely complemented the suite and responded to your requests.

Now it is time to look towards the next major release: Q3 2011 (expected mid-Fall). We believe that it is not only important to introduce new controls as we did in Q2, but to constantly improve the existing ones. Therefore, Q3 2011 will focus on improvements and new features in our existing code base. Here are just a few of the many improvements that are about to come:

  • RadGridView. Two new highly requested editors will allow the end user to edit the loaded data in RadGridView: Browser editor and Calculator editor. The Browser editor will allow the end user to browse using both a textbox and a button, while the Calculator editor will allow the user to submit a value resulting from a mathematical calculation.

    Another popular feature request will turn into an out-of-the-box feature – a hyperlink column. This column will represent the given data as a link and when the user clicks that link, he/she will be transferred to a specified web page.

  • RadRichTextBox will get rid of its Beta tag to become an official part of the WinForms suite. Table support, hyperlinks, superscript and subscript will complete the set of features suitable for such a control. In addition, you will be able to benefit from the built-in RadRibbonBar designed for the purposes of RadRichTextBox.

  • Telerik Metro Blue theme will be yet another pearl in the necklace of beautiful themes. It will cover the metro style trends dressing our controls in white and blue colors.
