We are still finalizing all of the licensing and pricing details for the official release of Kendo UI, including how Kendo UI will be offered to existing Telerik customers. These details should be available in the next few weeks, and we'll be sure to publish full clarification on how Kendo UI and other Telerik products interact (from a licensing perspective).
Sorry I can't share more at this time. Stay tuned, though. All will be detailed soon.
At the most basic level, I can say that Kendo UI will available for both commercial and open source projects under a dual-license model. So definitely play with the beta and share your feedback; we'll have a license for all projects this winter.
Here's my concern...I have a media player which is asp.net based, but the content is all fed via JSON from an Alfresco resposity...so the JSON nature SCREAMS kendo at me.
So I don't want to refactor out a bunch of asp.net ajax stuff to then not be able to use Kendo because it's not "Ultimate" :)
**NOTE** Stylebug: the Reply\Update buttons on this form when the opacity changes on hover (in FF5) the "LI" disc is faintly visible still to the right of the text.
That makes perfect sense. While the final details are still not available, it is more than likely that the Kendo UI web widgets will be part of the Telerik bundles. Let us dot some i's and cross some t's and then we'll lay out the full licensing plan.
Hope that helps.
There is a new video in the blog section. At the end of the video, it says it's release time is around November.
Hope this helps!
KendoUI pricing can come as a big negative surprise....I guess I should stop using it immediately....
As said previously in this thread, the details about the Kendo UI pricing and licensing will be disclosed with the official v1 release of the product, due in November.
