A big day for development tools [AJAX Control Toolkit release!]

A short while ago we published the 11119 release of the AJAX Control Toolkit to coincide with today's release of .NET 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008! As usual, we have published "source" and "no-source" versions for .NET 2.0/Visual Studio 2005 and .NET 3.5/Visual Studio 2008.

The content of the 11119 release is largely the same as our previous 10920 release, with most changes being minor tweaks to the .NET 3.5 flavor of the Toolkit:

  • All web.config files were updated to match the shipping configuration of ASP.NET/AJAX 3.5.
  • The AssemblyVersion/AssemblyFileVersion of the .NET 3.5 version of AjaxControlToolkit.dll was changed from 1.0.x.y to 3.5.x.y to more clearly identify its association with .NET 3.5 (the .NET 1.0 version of the assembly remains as 1.0.x.y).
  • All of the new code analysis warnings resulting from improvements to the VS 2008 code analysis feature were addressed.
  • The "Add Page Method" design-time feature was re-enabled because the blocking issue in VS 2008 Beta 2 was been fixed.
  • A design-time workaround for XML namespace alterations to a control's inner property content was removed because the problematic VS 2008 Beta 2 behavior was addressed.
The following changes were common to both the .NET 1.0 and .NET 3.5 flavors of the Toolkit:
  • A minor documentation correction was made to the ModalPopup sample page's descriptions of the OkCancel* properties.
  • A fix was made to AutoComplete to better support the use of purely numeric values.

As always, it's easy to sample any of the controls (no install required). You can also browse the project web site, download the latest Toolkit, and start creating your own controls and/or contributing to the project!
