We spent the past few weeks reviewing the feedback we’ve received from you through support tickets, our public issue tracking system, emails to our sales team, talks with our evangelists at conferences, etc. We are now officially ready to announce the plans we’ve come up with based on your input.

Basically, we will develop our ASP.NET AJAX control suite in several directions:

1. Enhancing User Experience

  • Persistence Framework – with Q1 2013 your users will be able to persist app settings between sessions.
  • Improved performance thanks to modern (light) rendering leveraging HTML5 and CSS3 in modern browsers for our Window, Dock, Rating, Tooltip, Button and FormDecorator controls.
  • Mobile support – improving the behavior of all controls under iOS6 and Windows 8 touch.
  • Accessibility - We will aim at making all RadControls Section 508 compliant and at least level AA compliant with the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0/2.0.

2. Skinning
With Q1’13 we are making your skinning tasks a lot easier. Enjoy at least one new skin and SASS support allowing you to build custom skins more quickly.

Other major things we’ve planned include:

We have a lot of enhancements to the existing controls planned as well and you can take a look at them at our Roadmap.

Don’t forget to let us know what you think about our plans! It’s important for us. By the way, we still don’t have any clue what name to choose for the “TreeViewComboBox” control, so feel free to jump in with suggestions. Thanks in advance!
