, a provider of productivity tools
for developers, has announced the Q2 2011 release of its tools portfolio.
Telerik's tools cover the
software application lifecycle and include content-management solutions. The Q2
2011 release addresses the shifting technology landscape and features a host of
tools spanning a variety of technologies, including HTML5, XAML, WinForms and
Windows Phone 7.
Among the highlights of the
new release are the addition of the "Metro" theme to Telerik's RadControls for
Silverlight and WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation), and a new profiler for
OpenAccess ORM-Telerik's object-relational mapping tool for Microsoft's Visual
Studio development tool suite.
ecosystem is at somewhat of a crossroads-as new platforms and technologies
continue to emerge at a rapid pace, developers are increasingly challenged when
trying to determine which path will lead them to the greatest success," said
Svetozar Georgiev, CEO of Telerik, in a statement. "Telerik's role in this
shifting paradigm is to help users effectively embrace what is a
hard-to-predict technology future. By actively investing in and delivering
adaptable, robust and best-in-class solutions, we ensure developers will be
well prepared for any eventual future, no matter which way they choose to go."
Making its debut in
Telerik's RadControls for Silverlight, WPF, and WinForms suites is the new
Metro theme, a clean interpretation of Microsoft's new design standard found on
platforms like Windows Phone. With its release, developers can implement the
Metro theme in their applications.
Indeed, an array of new and
upgraded high-quality, high-performance tools and controls are also being
introduced across Telerik's RadControls portfolio, including HTML5-driven
ASP.NET MVC, paving the way for rapid HTML5 adoption, the company said. The new
release also features RadListView, a data-bound control supporting different
views, and RadPropertyGrid, offering sophisticated theming and customizations
in RadControls for WinForms. The toolset also includes new Image Editor and Web
Notification controls, a myriad of new RibbonBar features, and four new skins
in RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX. And it delivers multiple new controls and the
addition of RadTreeMap to the rich data visualizations in RadControls for
Silverlight and WPF.
In addition, Telerik's
latest release tweaks the company's data-access framework, OpenAccess ORM,
including a new profiler tool. With support for SQL visualization, performance
deficiency analysis and detection, key behavior summary values, and log
sorting, filtering and grouping, the profiler helps developers quickly
understand and optimize data operations powered by OpenAccess. Other
improvements include greater support for multiple database back-ends and more
powerful Fluent API functionality for code-first data development.
The Q2 2011 milestone
release also marks the commercial debut of JustTrace, a .NET performance and
memory-profiling tool. With support for IIS (Internet Information Services) and
Windows services, and memory, sample and tracing profile optimizations,
JustTrace offers easy .NET application profiling.
enhancements being rolled out across Telerik's .NET productivity line include
better refactoring capabilities, new code-cleaning functionality, and memory
and performance optimizations in JustCode, Telerik's real-time code analysis
Visual Studio plug-in. There also is new decompiling support for Visual Basic
.NET and Microsoft Intermediate Language, automatic refreshing of assemblies,
and performance, memory and UI optimizations in JustDecompile, Telerik's free
