    Hello,

    today we got an official announcement from microsoft that silverlight 5 would be the latest version. As one of the biggest company of using silverlight in over 25 Business APPLICATIONS and developed a silverlight cloud office called semyou.com we are very interested in some information about the future of telerik because we are using all telerik controls in each application.

    So i heart that you are working very hard on html 5 controls and maybe also on some winRT Controls. Please give us some information about the future because we have extended our subscription licenses for your SL-Controls but without any updates from microsoft it will not make any sense more.

    Thx. Volker J.
    semYOU

    We have invested about a year of development time into Silverlight  for a future Enterprise product.  Certainly nowhere near what Volker has done at his company.  But, we are WORRIED about what the future holds for Silverlight.

    Could Telerik please post a response to us about the future of Silverlight?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    thank you for the link but we need newer information because the thread is from September. So i think that you have to inform your customer a bit better about the future.

    For me it is really not enough to know that you are working on html5 and winRT .... our business is based on your controls that the key !

    So please, invest some time to give all interested people some details.

    Regards Volker J.

    The HTML5/JavaScript version of our WinRT components will be based on our brand new KendoUI!

    For the Silverlight/WPF platforms we continue to add more and more components. Here is what's new in Q3 2011:

    - BarCode
    - Calculator
    - ChartView
    - VirtualizingWrapPanel
    - SpellChecker
    - EntityFrameworkDataSource (WPF only)
    - ColorEditor
    - PDFViewer

    Furthermore we are working on Pivot, Gantt, Diagrams and Spreadsheet  - will be released next year.

    We are doing our best to provide all needed components for various platforms!

    Well, silverlight will have a long running support. It can be nice to have a supported framework that won't be changed or tampered with for several years.
