This week we released our third “alpha” CTP build of our Telerik OpenAccess Data Services Wizard on Telerik Labs. We have received tons of feedback on the tool and look forward to more feedback. The wizard’s development team and the entire OpenAccess team have come up with a roadmap and would like some feedback from the community on it. In the spirit of a transparent design, I am going to publish the entire roadmap here for community review. Of course all of this can change blah blah blah. (The lawyers made me say that.)
Beta 1: January 2010
Beta 2: February 2010
Release: Telerik Q1 2010 Release
After the Q1 release the roadmap is not super clear. I will assume that core development will slow down a little and that we will then focus mostly on adding support for new service types. I am sure that by next spring, there will already be some new service types to support like the release build of WCF RIA Services, maybe a new CTP of Astoria, etc.
Drop me a line and let me know what you think! Also, the tech support team is adding a separate Data Service Wizard forum in the Telerik support forums, so even though the wizard is technically a “lab” project and not supported, drop by and ping the team with your questions there. We’ll answer all your support questions there as well.
Enjoy and thanks for any feedback you send.
