If I start new development by MVC 5 with VS 2013 Preview that has production licence.
Will I have major problems to integrate Kendo UI for MVC 5 project when using latest internal build Kendoui.aspnetmvc.2013.2.823.commercial.zip or should I wait for the Q3?, which will support VS 2013 MVC 5?

We intend to support VS 2013 and ASP.NET MVC 5 as soon as they become official, as we don't support frameworks, IDEs or browsers in Alpha/Beta stages.
Therefore, you can use the current latest internal build for testing purposes and report any issues you find to us in order to make sure we address them before we announce official support.
Thanks for the prompt reply. I was just wondering this as some product are available in VS 2013 Preview such as Decompiler and Tracer but KendoUI or other productivity tools seems not following same beta availability approach.
Anyhow, its clear and will follow/do manual configuration to KendoUI wrappers.
I believe its pretty much same approach that is used and documented for MVC 4 / VS2012 previously.
Although some places the scripts are located in different files in MVC 5 but anyhow no big deals on there.
If any issues are found I will raise and address them to ensure they are resolved in future version(s).
Did you get it working on ASP.NET MVC 5?
Can you post the changes?
I get it working, and so far no issues.
I basically follow "Manually add Kendo UI to ASP.NET MVC applications" following the basic copy of files and config file changes.
See the link: http://docs.kendoui.com/getting-started/using-kendo-with/aspnet-mvc/introduction
The instructions are for older MVC but I applied them to MVC 5 as follows:
Add following to BundleConfig.cs file
Added following two lines to _Layout.cshtml right after <head> section following the @ directives style.
Now that we have the 2013 RC when can we expect the kendo mvc wrappers to support it like in previous releases?
Thank you for contacting us!
We are currently implementing Visual Studio 2013 support for all our products and we plan to release it with our Q3 2013 release which is planned for November.
Kendo UI Complete for ASP.NET MVC Q3 2013 will be released in the end of November.Regards,
Kendo UI will be released later this week. It will ship with binaries for ASP.NET MVC 3, 4 and 5. Visual Studio 2013 support will be introduced at a later still not determined stage. We hope we will be ready before the end of the year.Regards,
When can I expect this to be supported and can you point me to the best practice for manually installing it? (or are the above notes still the best practice?) I ask because I have a quick project to knock out with a mid December deadline for production.
