    I upgraded to the WPF 4.0 2001 Q3 Release.
    Everything seems fine but gauge.

    I don't even see the word "gauge" mentioned in the release notes so its hard to tell what is going on with this control.

    It doesn't show up in the toolbox. It looks like there are now specific gauge controls instead.
    I also noticed on the WPF demo application. Gauge is now mentioned as BETA

    What is going on with this control. My current code looks like

    Hello Jim,

    With 2011 Q3 release we introduced a new gauge control. It is almost new control redesigned from scratch. Some of its features are similar to the old control’s features but they are implemented in absolutely different way (using different set of properties), some features are completely new.
    Our demo application now references the new gauge control and demonstrates its features. We are working on the help topics so they will describe the features of the new control as well.
    We strongly recommend using of the new gauge control in the new applications. We also would recommend replacing the old control with a new one in existing applications if there is a timeframe for this task. To avoid cross-controls problems we’ve removed the old control from the default Telerik namespace. But it still can be used in your XAML as following:
    <Window x:Class="OldGaugeControl.MainWindow"
            Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525">
                    <gauges:RadialScale Name="radialScale">
                            <gauges:Needle Value="75" />
