The first service pack of the R2 2016 release of UI for ASP.NET AJAX is out. Go ahead and grab it to make your web apps more stable.
The latest stability release of UI for ASP.NET AJAX R2 2016 SP1 (2016.2.607) is out and brings with it a lot of improvements. You can find below a short list that highlights some of the most valuable problems we have updated and enhanced with this release:
- Close the predefined RadAlert, RadConfirm and RadPrompt popups with the Escape key
- Cells on the last row in RadGrid cannot be selected using DragToSelect cells, if cursor runs out of the grid during the selection
- Using RadEditor's ToolsFile property from the markup disregards Lightweight rendering configured from the web.config
- RadEditor's TrackChanges does not track typing of !, #, $, %, & characters
- Title of decorated checkboxes by RadFormDecorator is lost in FireFox and IE
You can quickly go through the complete list of fixes in the Release Notes.
