telerik Unveils 4-in-1 Release
telerik announced its Q1 2007 release, which outlines the next steps in the company s strategic direction. Q1 2007 includes RadControls for ASP.NET, RadControls for WinForms, the first official version of Telerik Reporting, and a new suite code-named RadControls Prometheus for ASP.NET.
RadControls Prometheus is the successor of RadControls for ASP.NET. The Prometheus components are built entirely on top of ASP.NET AJAX, utilizing its common programming model. The first version of this new suite is available with a Beta Go-live license and will be launched commercially in 2008, after Visual Studio Orcas is released and after Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX becomes an integral part of the ASP.NET framework.
One of the focal points of the Q1 release is the expansion of the RadControls suite for WinForms, a Vista-style UI suite for desktop development. telerik has added three major controls to the UI suite: RadGridView, RadTreeView, and RadChart. Unified by the Telerik Presentation Framework, the new products will deliver enhanced performance and extensibility, combined with unique Vista-style UI features like Flash-like animations, scaling, rotation, transparencies, and alpha blending.
This release also brings the addition of Telerik Reporting. This new report generation engine offers a convenient object model and solid Visual Studio 2005 integration to allow customers to easily generate Win, Web, and PDF reports. Telerik Reporting offers drag and drop databinding, the ability to plug in custom renderers, a Visual Studio-identical datasource wizard, a fine-grained CSS-like styling mechanism, a set of measurement units, and other features that can accelerate the creation and styling of company reports.
