Thank you for the feedback, xeon.
We are quite confident that we have a stable product at this stage. I agree that we still have a few glitches to work out, and I can ascertain you that they will be fixed in the Q2 release. The remaining items on our bug list are indeed few, so we will appreciate it if you share any problems that you have stumbled upon while using the latest Q1 SP2 release. We have enough time to address whatever issues remain and to focus on the last set of QA tests.
Our WinForms suite is gathering momentum and we are happy with the adoption rate. We also get good feedback on the latest Q2 SP2 release that our controls are shaping up really well, and that the potential is there. It is still a relatively new suite, having been on the market less than an year. As such, it may lack some features, but most of our clients are already seeing the benefits of our controls in terms of stability and performance. For example, RadTreeView is now 5 times faster than the standard treeview with 50,000 nodes. The Grid and the Ribbon got a nice performance boost as well. We are also working on new layouts, which will provide you with easier development experience, as well as standardized looks.
I am sure you will find the Q2 version to be much more mature and enhanced, as the main focus will be on performance, stability, and QA.
On a side note, we are running a new poll, "Help us shape v4 of RadGridView!
," which we would like you to fill out. It will help us decide which features are most important for you so that we can plan their development. We will share the results of the poll weekly in order to keep track of what the next GridView will be like.
Again, thank you guys for your feedback.
