Telerik Releases Q2 2009 Enhanced .NET Component and Tool Suite
Telerik, a vendor of .NET development tools and UI components, announced the Q2 2009 release of its RadControls UI components, reporting, ORM and web testing solutions. Highlights of the new release, Telerik Premium Collection for .NET, include 3D Chart for Silverlight, to help developers create visualizations of large volumes of data and which the vendor says is the first commercial product of its kind; a Silverlight Scheduler, which combines Outlook-style convenience with a slick interface and advanced editing capabilities; and Visual Style Builder, which enables easy point-and-click customization of skins for Telerik's RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX.
Concurrently with the new RadControls release, Telerik announced another product: WebAii Testing Framework for RadControls, powered by ArtOfTest, a free web testing solution for automating AJAX- and Silverlight-powered rich Internet applications (RIAs).
"Our Q2 release of the Telerik Premium Collection for .NET brings us another step closer to supporting the developer community in all aspects of the development lifecycle," said Svetozar Georgiev, Telerik CEO. "Many of our customers look to Telerik as a one-stop shop for Microsoft .NET development tools and components. We continually enhance and expand our portfolio to address developers' new challenges and strengthen our unique position in the Microsoft .NET vendor community as a holistic provider of complete solutions."
Telerik Premium Collection for .NET is $1,299 per developer seat. The license comes with priority support (guaranteed 24-hour response time), full C# source code, redistribution rights, and free updates for the latest products for one year. All component suites and tools are also available individually. For more information, visit the Telerik website.
