    Hi again,

    With version 2013.2.716 I've noticed that dynamically loading a culture file with require.js is broken. We use the kendo.web.min.js bundle and load different culture files dynamically depending on user preference or server instruction.

    With this new version, I am getting what is described here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17705611/in-kendoui-web-2013-2-716-requiring-kendo-culture-xx-xx-min-js-produces-an-inval

    Are kendo going to provide a solution for such a situation? Note that before the above mentioned version this mechanism worked fine for me.

    From my point of view:
    - it would be best if kendo fixed the culture files to still work with require.js and kendo.web bundle or provide a solution on how to do it in a way that works
    - or as a last resort at least provide the option in the Custom Download page to be able to include the culture files in the custom.min.js so that I can get a bundle that is very similar to kendo.web but includes the culture files (although there would be a lot of overhead as I usually only dynamically load 3 to 4 culture files per page)

    Hi Luciano,

    There will be a fix for this in the next build.  Essentially, we removed the dependency on "kendo.core" from minified culture files, so they can now be used with RequireJS + the bundles.

    I still don't recommend using the bundles with RequireJS in production, but it should be OK for development.
