Hello!

I hope the Telerik team has learned their lesson with the disastrous releases of Q3 2010 and Q1 2011.
While I really would like to get the bugfixes, especially for the grid control,
I have not been able to integrate anything into production code since 2010Q2 due to showstoppers and missing functionality.

Please let the Q2 release be centered around bug fixing and not forcing half-baked new features or dubious refactorings on us.

Also I strongly urge you, not to remove bread-and-butter controls like treeview and replace them with obviously unfinished/untested refactorings. If you must refactor - and especially if the new control lacks functionality of the old one - please give us a chance to migrate our code over several telerik releases. You did that with the docking framework, why not with the very central treeview control?

Regards
Erwin

Hi Erwin,

i agree about everything you said. 

Every major refactoring of an existing control should result in an new control so that the existing control and the new control can coexist for some releases. That would help me a lot.

Kind Regards,

Ramius

Hello guys,

Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it.

Yes we try to learn from our mistakes and we try to constantly improve our framework. In our next version we will focus on bug fixes in our current controls: RadGridView, RadTreeView, RadDock... We will also present two new controls: property grid and list view. However, not always is possible to keep old controls in our suite. Our framework has a core used by all controls and changing or improving something in it will affect all of them.

Our policy is to help customers when they want to migrate their applications to the latest release.  So, if you have show stoppers, please describe the exact issues and we will try to address them in our upcoming release, or we will try to find the best option to work around the issue. 

If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
 
All the best,
Jack
