It is official – Telerik RadControls for Silverlight3 are here with the latest 2009 Q2 SP1 release. We did our best to take advantage of all new and exciting features from the latest version of the platform. RadControls now offer a new theming mechanism and you can clearly see the difference when you open our demo examples in Blend. We also added support for .NET RIA Services for all data-bound Telerik Silverlight 3 controls. Check the codeless binding of RadgridView to DomainDataSource to see how it works. The next exciting additions are validation for all input controls and out of browser support so now you can run all Telerik RadControls for Silverlight right on your desktop.
Of course the Service Pack ships a lot of bug fixes and enhancements but stay tuned for 2009 Q3 release – there is much more to come.
One important announcement is that with the introduction of Silverlight 3 we will discontinue the future support for our Silverlight 2 controls. The dlls for SL2 will still be included in this release, but not in the installation files and the demos.
