Thank you for your honest feedback.
Let me start with the good news - we have started working on the next version of the ribbonbar, which will be officially released in mid summer. It will feature extended compliance to the Microsoft guidelines, better design-time support and numerous bug fixes.
I have to say that RadRibbonBar has not gotten much updates after its official release, other than some minor fixes. Since many of you are waiting the new version, we have decided to give it High importance and it is now part of our plans for Q2.
I will be happy to upload bi-weekly builds so that you can witness the progress we are making. Let me know if this is OK and I will check how we can accomplish this.
By the way, for all of you who will be at TechEd this year, please stop by our booth (1101) to say HI. I will be there, together with other Telerikers, and I will be happy to address any questions you may have in person.
