    It feels as if the end of the ASP.NET AJAX tools is near. I just poked through the DevCraft R1 Webinar and didn't see anything about ASP.NET AJAX (perhaps it's there but didn't see it) and the 'NEW' features of R1 are pretty slim. It seems a bit of a stretch to say that dropping IE8 Support is a NEW feature and upgrading of a the Amazon SDK from 3.3.3.0 to 3.3.5.0 is a NEW feature. Aside from that the only new feature is the custom editors for SpreadSheet.

    Am I misreading this direction?

    Hello John,

    The UI for ASP.NET AJAX is a really mature product (perhaps the most mature product line we have), and consists of over 100 controls. At this point there are very few features we need to add, because demand for them is low. Most of our clients use the suite in existing applications and the current feature set is usually enough.

    This does not mean that the product is coming to an end. There is a myriad of applications built with it out there, and we intend to keep going and to provide support to our clients.

    If you do have any feature requests, you can add them to our feedback portal so management can gauge the public interest and impact of their implementation: https://feedback.telerik.com/project/108.

    Hello Marin,

    Thanks for the reply. It seems this is the standard direction of webforms these days.

    Best,
    John

    The ASP.NET AJAX Feedback Portal currently shows 915 items in approved status. Is there a plan to work through this huge backlog of approved requests?

    Hello Shane,

    The Approved status means that it has been decided that the item may provide benefit and we may work on it. Prioritizing based on impact and priority comes later. The goal of those statuses is to provide clear indication of:

    • ideas that are implemented or bugs that are fixed (the Completed status)
    • ideas that will not be implemented (the Declined and Won't fix statuses)
    • ideas that may be implemented and bugs that may be fixed (the Approved status)
    • ideas and bug reports that have not been triaged yet, meaning that they can move to either of the other three statuses (the New and Under Review statuses)
    • items on which some work is being done (In Development status)

    I hope this explains the portal structure.

    What about designers (Configuration Wizards) that actually work on a high resolution screen with scaling? Shocked to see the same issues still remain that made us switch to DevExpress 2 years ago.

    Hi Patrik,

    You can find my answer in the other thread with the same question that you posted: http://www.telerik.com/forums/telerik-configuration-wizard-not-working-on-high-rez-displays.
