When will Windows 8 XAML controls catch up to WPF/Silverlight? It doesn't seem that this is a goal as there isn't much progress on Windows 8 XAML controls even though Microsoft seems to have replaced WPF/Silverlight with WinRT.

At its current state the RadControls for Windows 8 XAML suite contains twelve controls, including major components like RadDataGrid, RadChart and DataStorage. Every component is built from the ground up, thus achieving high performance and great responsiveness. The controls are also specifically designed for the Windows 8 Touch environment.
Our future goals are to extend the suite with the most requested controls and also keep improving the already implemented. For example, in our Q3 2013 official release we are going to introduce a RadMap(which is a major component), RadRangeSlider and RadRadialMenu. Additionally, we will make improvements on the RadDataGrid, RadChart and the DataStorage.
If you would like to make a request for a specific control, you can use our Ideas and Feedback portal where you can log an idea or feature request. Thus, you will allow our community to vote for it and raise its priority. You can also track our official Product RoadMap where all the upcoming controls and features are listed.
I hope this information is useful. Let me know should you have any questions or suggestions.
