The Q1 2012 Service Packs for Telerik XAML controls (Silverlight, WPF and Windows Phone) have been released.  You will find many improvements and fixes in the service packs, which you can download now under Your Account

Be sure to check the updated Silverlight and WPF Trials

This new service pack brings a number of improvements and fixes. 

You now have the option to disable the Telerik StyleManager and to style controls using implicit styles (i.e., Style without the x:Key attribute). There are a number of advantages to using implicit styles, including:

  • Custom themes are easier
  • Basing styles on themes is easier
  • Assemblies are smaller
  • Improved Blend support

For more on using implicit styles with the new release, please see this Silverlight help file or this WPF article.

This Service Pack also brings support for Visual Studio 11.
