Just thought I would alert the Kendo UI developers to this potential bug:

The JavaScript .map files that came with my trial copy of Kendo UI 2013.3.1119 all contain "sourceRoot":"../src/js/" at the end, which points browsers to the non-existent folder "/src/js" whereas my Kendo UI JS files are located in the "/Scripts/kendo" folder instead. 

This causes DevTools to attempt to load the JS files from the wrong location and display a 404 error in the console.

To fix this problem I had to do a global search-and-replace to remove the optional "sourceRoot" property from all 101 .map files in my project.

Hi,

Unfortunately, it's impossible to tell in advance where the source files will be in every app.  The sourceRoot was designed to work with commercial Kendo builds, which ship minified files in "js/" and original sources in "src/js/".

For the future, we plan to do what jQuery did and remove the sourceMappingURL comment.
