Latest release brings
Mocking tool to market, introduces Silverlight Minifier, and delivers upgrades across full Telerik toolbox
WALTHAM, MA, JULY 14, 2010 – Telerik, a leading vendor of development tools and
user interface components for .NET, today unveiled details of its Q2 2010 milestone release. Fresh from its recent
“Best of TechEd Award” win, the company launched its latest developer productivity product, and new tools and controls. The company also announced the immediate availability of an array of upgrades and enhancements for the full Telerik product line.
Among the new offerings and updates being announced are JustMock, a new
Visual Studio productivity tool allowing quick and easy mocking of objects during testing, Silverlight Assembly Minifier, a tool for
assembly size optimization,
RichTextBox for Silverlight, Round Trip Mapping for the Visual Designer in Telerik’s
OpenAccess ORM and new Silverlight test automation enhancements to the company’s innovative and easy-to-use WebUI Test Studio.
“We understand that to remain competitive in a crowded market, developers must have access to the latest innovations and technologies allowing them to deliver added value to their customers,” said Svetozar Georgiev, CEO, Telerik. “Our team is firmly dedicated
to supporting our developer community by incorporating the newest, best technology advancements into Telerik’s product line-up and releasing regular upgrades in a timely fashion.”
The officially introduced RadRichTextBox for Silverlight allows developers to bring true Microsoft Word-like content editing experience to end-users. The new control offers rich text editing and formatting capabilities, import and export of HTML, DOCX, and
XAML, as well as out-of-browser support and printing.
Another addition to the Silverlight suite is the Telerik Assembly Minifier, a web-based tool that decreases the size of RadControls for Silverlight assemblies and consecutively the overall Silverlight application file size. It allows developers to quickly
create highly optimized custom assemblies that only contain the Telerik controls and resources needed for a specific application. Combined with the RadControls for Silverlight, the Assembly Minifier enables developers to achieve previously impossible levels
of optimization and in turn deliver faster application loading experiences to users.
Q2 2010 also marks the debut of Round Trip Mapping capabilities in the Telerik OpenAccess ORM Visual Designer. Developers traditionally must decide between Schema-first and Model-first mapping when working with ORM tools, like Entity Framework (EF), a decision,
which is then set for the project duration. With OpenAccess Round Trip Mapping and the Visual Designer, developers can employ either approach at any time, for example, reverse-mapping an existing schema then updating that schema by simply updating the mapped
model classes. Used in conjunction with Visual Designer, all tasks can be achieved in a single, intuitive view directly in Visual Studio, making OpenAccess one of the most flexible and efficient ORMs available.
Telerik’s second major release this year also delivers a host of new upgrades for its robust WebUI Test Studio, which are designed to allow professional development and QA teams to adopt Silverlight without sacrifices to application quality. Having previously
introduced Silverlight UI record and playback support, Telerik’s WebUI Test Studio now delivers full out-of-browser support for Silverlight application testing. The enhanced Silverlight test recording enables customers to run the same test in-browser and as
a desktop one. Also new is ChildWindow and Pop-up support for Silverlight applications, as well as robust image verification functionality permitting verification via visual rendering rather than element properties and attributes.
Q2 2010 marks the commercial release of Telerik’s JustMock developer productivity tool. Introduced earlier in 2010, JustMock allows Visual Studio developers to swiftly and effortlessly create object mockings during unit testing, saving time and resources.
By breaking dependencies in unit tests, developers can focus on testing single concerns, providing more complete unit test coverage and improving overall software testing quality. An intuitive, high-performance addition to Telerik’s integrated suite of developer
tools, JustMock opens new avenues to increased productivity, backed by the company’s industry-leading customer service and support.
Other upgrades and enhancements announced include:
Pricing of the Telerik Ultimate Collection for .NET, including all RadControl suites, Extensions for ASP.NET MVC, Reporting, OpenAccess ORM, JustCode, JustMock, and WebUI Test Studio Developer Edition is
$1,999 per developer seat. Each license comes with priority support, guaranteeing 24-hour response time, as well as full C# source code, redistribution rights, and free updates to the latest products for one year. For questions or additional pricing information,
