Recently, you may have noticed something different in the Telerik Control Panel. In the past, Telerik Control Panel has been your go-to tool for the installation and update of DevTools, Kendo UI and testing tools. With this latest update of the Control Panel we’ve now added Test Studio, Sitefinity and TeamPulse into the mix. Each product family has now been split out into their own sections, giving you the ability to find what you are looking for – fast!

To obtain this latest update, simply open Telerik Control Panel on your desktop and have the application update itself once prompted. If you were a previous subscriber of the DevTools products, by default you will be brought directly into the DevTools section, this allows direct access to the tools that you need most. To see all products available for installation you can simply select the back arrow icon at any time to go to the new main screen pictured in Figure 1.

Consistency is key with the new Control Panel. By retaining its familiar look and feel, the installation, update and removal experiences remain consistent across each of the new product sections. This allows you to be comfortable and productive with this new tool right out of the gate.
