      • Removed dependency to System.ServiceModel assembly

    • Changes

      • DataPoint.Label property is obsolete; please use DataPoint.LegendLabel instead

    RadGauge

    • New Features
      • LinearScale / RadialScale interactivity features (click support, indicator elements dragging)
      • LinearScale / RadialScale tooltip support for scale elements
      • LinearScale / RadialScale MajorTickStep property - this property provides alternative way to set up major ticks in the linear / radial scale: instead of defining the number of ticks, it allows you to specify the interval between ticks in scale units. Also, you can use the LinearScale / RadialScale ShowLastLabel property to indicate whether you want the last tick displayed in scenarios where the actual scale range is not divisible by the MajorTickStep property value (e.g. range 150 and step 9)
      • LinearScale.Orientation property - gets or sets a value indicating the orientation of the respective scale; this significantly facilitates the creation of horizontal linear gauges
      • IGaugeIndicator Interface - this interface combines numeric indicator and other indicators those are based on IndicatorBase class. It provides easy access to the common indicator’s properties.
    • Changes
      • RadialScale.IsLabelRotated property is now enumeration property (LabelRotationMode enumeration) instead of boolean property. The enumeration values are as follows:
        None – works like IsLabelRotated == false in previous version
        Automatic – works like IsLabelRotated == true in previous version
        SurroundIn – labels surround radial scale with character’s base line is directed towards the center of the scale
        SurroundOut – labels surround radial scale with character’s base line is directed backwards the center of the scale

      • The IndicatorList, RangeList and TickList containers must be used instead of Indicators, Ranges and Ticks properties of a gauge scale. Note that rendering of their objects will be performed according to actual placement in XAML (with previous version it was possible to place ranges after indicators but indicators were placed on top -- currently IndicatorList should be placed last in the scale container)

      • Types of Indicators, Ranges, Ticks, and Labels properties have been changed to ItemCollection (according to the changes in container classes). If you are accessing collection element then it has object type and should be converted to appropriate type. In previous version each element of the list was strong typed (for example Indicators contained  IndicatorBase objects) but currently it should be converted to indicator specific type or to IGaugeIndicator interface

      • Numeric Indicator - The NumberPositions property returns the Items property of the Numeric Indicator. If you get a number position from the NumberPositions collection via index then it has object type and should be converted to NumberPosition type

      • Number positions do not have own template list for characters now (TemplateList property is removed). You need to set the NumericIndicator.TemplatePrefix property instead. RadGauge provide "FontFamily", "SevenSegs" and "HexagonalSevenSegs" templates of characters for numeric indicator. The "FontFamily" prefix is used by default.

    RadCarousel

    • Changes
      • Introduced TopContainer and IsAnimating properties to RadCarouselPanel
      • Introduced TopContainerChanged and IsAnimatingChanged events to RadCarouselPanel
    • Bug fixes
      • Fixed a problem where UI elements in carousel items where unresponsive

    RadNumericUpDown

    • New Features
      • Added ShowButtons dependency property in RadNumericUpDown. This property controls the visibility of up/down buttons

    RadProgressBar

    • New Features
      • RadProgressBar has a property SkipValue which allows the ProgressBar indicator to start from any value smaller than the current Value. For example, if value is 0.5 and SkipValue is 0.25, there will be a visible indicator for 0.25 to 0.5
