Telerik announces upcoming new products

Telerik (famous for their AJAX controls) just recently announced their upcoming new products, which is pretty exciting. Why, you ask? Because they include r.a.d.control for WinForms as well as Telerik Reporting and Telerik r.a.d.ajax (allows devs to AJAX-Enable ANY ASP.Net web app without writing code).

I've come to really love these controls for all the things they allow me to do with very little code that would otherwise have taken me days or weeks to begin to work out and since I loath writing Javascript they save me the hassle. More importantly the support and community surrounding Telerik's products is growing stronger every day.

But, back to the new offerings. Having these same benefits in WinForms applications and easy to use reporting tools for Visual Studio will be a blessing. When it comes to getting real work done I prefer to spend less time working out the details of the UI and more time focusing on the real business logic behind the applications. From my experiences, with the ajax controls, the new WinForms controls (which is what I am most excited about) should offer me that easily customizable set of controls that look great and offer the functionality I need and how I want it. Ohh and they offer WPF-like capabilities for enhanced levels of UI customization.

Check out the Demos:
