DXperience v2008 vol 3: What's New is now live

31 October 2008

OK, there I was writing about the new features in DXperience v2008 vol 3, and I needed to find out about a particular one. So I nipped into the next room to ask Andrew about it, and he said, duh, the What's New has just been uploaded to the main website and I can read about it there.

Heh! So, if you want to know about the new features in DXperience v2008 vol 3, go here.

A quick note: we just released beta 1 of v2008 vol 3. We will release at least another beta and most probably a Release Candidate (RC) over the next two or three weeks. The main reason for this is that the new WinForms Rich Text editor wasn't quite ready and we didn't want to delay the first beta any more. So, in the next beta you'll be getting some bug fixes and also the beta for XtraRichTextEdit.

This new component (of which you'll be seeing more information over the near future) is going to remain in beta until v2009 vol 1. It will have a Go Live license, so if you want to use it in your production apps before then, you can. However I would point out that the reason we're not moving it out of beta yet is that we want our customers to bash at it and use it in earnest in order to tease out any remaining bugs it may have (OK, OK, that it will have Smile). We're extremely pleased with it and its architecture (and if you were at PDC you'll have seen a demo of the Silverlight version) and it's very stable and performant. Check it out in the next beta.

Will the RTF control support tables? I don't see any table examples in the screenshots.

If you have a subscription, it's available in the Client Center under Current Downloads.

Very great new features indeed, but I was hoping that gantt view support was added to the XtraScheduler by now as mentioned in your 2008 roadmap:


Or is a vol 4 perhaps in the works?

In some support posts I saw that in this version we'll find some performance improvements, specially in Web, may you detail it please?
