However I found no "official" discussion of the kendo CDN
> We officially release our scripts and styles on a CDN with each official release, and we always use the CDN for our online demos. Indeed, we don't mention that in the documentation - we'll address this for the release.
At that point I tried every combo of the separated (smaller) scripts and finally came to the conclusion I need the "all" script to have beta 1 function.
> With the official release, we'll be providing a download builder that will select the dependencies you need, so there will be no more guesswork.
... what would be best is a commitment by Kendo to support the CDN
> We support the CDN, as stated above. Please note that the CDN is released only with official releases (plus SPs and betas), so it's highly recommended that you try it out (i.e. with a beta) before the official release -- this way we'll have time to address issues that might pop up -- otherwise you'll have to wait for a new release.
... would they be taken down one day causing my app to break?
> No, that would be pointless. The CDNs are there to stay (you can access the MVC CDN from Q1.2010
, for example). Plus, the CDNs are priced per request&transfer
, so there's no additional cost for us in maintaining old files there. Even if the pricing was per storage, the minified files are too small to induce a cost.
