>>That is why we have decided to include our RadWindow control even in the CTP2 scheduled for July, 14. Thus, we will have about a week to get some of your highly appreciated feedback prior to our next major release on July, 22.<<


Can you elaborate what you mean by "Next major release on July, 22"? Do you mean major release on Silverlight or your other products?

Since this comment was made in a SL blog, I got confused!

Thanks!

Hello Ben,

Just to clarify - we will deliver a CTP2 next week which will bring the following new controls into the Silverlight suite:
ComboBox
Window
PanelBar
Calendar
DatePicker
MediaPlayer
and Slider.

For 22nd of July is scheduled our corporate Q2 release which includes the ASP.NET Ajax, Winforms, WPF, Reporting and Silverlight releases. For this Q2 release, Silverlight team will release the same controls as in CTP2.

Best Regards,

Now, it's clear.

Ok, now that a SL product is being released, when are you going to announce the pricing for Silverlight suite by itself? I don't need ASP or Winform, just the SL stuff...

Hello Ben,

This is still not an official release and the controls are currently offered for free.

For the official version that will be released when the MSSilverlight2 become official (probably end of summer) the price for the developer license most probably will be as the rest of our single suites - $999. The official version will include all the controls needed to build LOB applications - this includes Grid, Scheduler, Editor, Charting.

Do you think this is a good offer?

Sincerely yours,

I think it's reasonable! One thing I may suggest, is to offer a special price for the early adapters. This will give incentive for more serious/committed people to join in, and at the same time, their feedback and testing is rewarded by a generous offer.

It would be a great idea to bundle SL and WPF as one package as well. Remember, SL/WPF is a departure from ASP/WinForm!

When you say we offer these controls for "free" for now, there is no such a thing as "Free". It's like a Fisherman tells the fish, "hey, come and have some free bait" ;-). Once a developer uses the controls in his app, he has to go through with it and buys it when it's released. He is "hooked"... ;-)

I certainly am interested in your SL and WPF activities!
