Has anyone else found the level of changes to public members in each new release very frustrating?

Check out the attached screenshot of the calendar after upgrading to the 2010.1 603 release. It's basically non functional because we had a custom style and template that is no longer valid.

This experience holds true for the Calendar, GridView and Charts. We find ourselves constantly recreating styles with each new release and investing far too much time just to get these elements to look the way we want them to.

Unfortunately, the official answer from Telerik is "recreate the template" and "we cannot stop the development just to prevent the custom themes from breaking".

I'm concerned about the level of changes and the effort that goes into fixing styles with each upgrade. Is anyone else? Changing public members is just unreasonable.

See this post specifically for the Calendar:

Hello Mike,

 Can you post more info about these changed public members in our grid and other components? Usually we mark something as obsolete and after four or five months the member is deleted.

Please clarify!

All the best,

I have not yet looked closely enough to determine which specific property has changed. I have attached a screenshot of the grid before and after upgrading to 2010.1 603. Note that the style for the group by panel has changed.
