    We started our trial of the Telerik controls yesterday, and one of our main points for evaluating is the WPF suite.  We are current Sitefinity customers and all of our shop has used the Telerik development suite in the past at former jobs, so we are looking to purchase this suite and not have to go to a competitor.  We were a bit disappointed to see that the trial is .NET 3.5 only (unless I'm missing something?).  When I saw that the beta was in .NET 4.0, that looked much more appealing.  Plus, the controls that are new in the 2011 release are all controls we really need for our project (two of them are dealbreakers or dealmakers).  I looked around but I don't see a way to download the beta.  Is that not available when you are in a trial period?  I realize the controls are still in beta and it wouldn't be in great taste to make an evaluation off of beta code, but we are VERY familiar with Telerik and how great the controls are, so we're not afraid of a few bugs.  It's pretty easy for us to tell what is a Telerik limitation and what is a bug since we've all done Telerik-based projects in the past. I feel like we cannot do a proper evaluation without the controls being in .NET 4.0 and not having the new controls available.  I see the release isn't until next month, but, unfortunately, we need to make a decision before then.

    I tried to submit a support ticket, but my account says I am not licensed to submit a ticket, so I didn't know where else to go other than the forums.

    Is there any way to get a direct link to the WPF 2011 Q1 beta?

    Much appreciated,
