Along with the thrilling new products and functionality that Q2 brought to Telerik’s tool collection, the second major release for this year also introduced a few new features and updates to our SharePoint Acceleration Kit which you’ll find quite handy and worth exploring:
Much speedier data-binding to SharePoint lists was achieved by completely revising our SharePoint web part data-binding functionality – it’s now leveraging the Dynamic LINQ library and the SharePoint Collaborative Markup Language thus offering great performance optimizations.
Client-side data-binding for SharePoint lists and Excel files within your SharePoint doc libraries: now you can easily bind your Grid to data existing on the client and get results immediately.

Binding to External Lists now allows users to take advantage of our RadGrid’s robust filtering, sorting, paging, and grouping features to bind a SharePoint grid to an external data source using the SharePoint-popular BCS.

Telerik’s RadScheduler web part now supports resource grouping to help you display appointments for shared assets (rooms, vehicles etc.) or set up team calendars.
