What's New in AJAX Control Toolkit

Free to use. More Dependable than Ever Before.

If ASP.NET is your web development platform of choice, odds are you familiar with the open-source AJAX Control Toolkit. If you've used the toolkit in the past, you also know that for quite some time, the project was poorly supported, with an ever growing list of critical issues. Seeing the demand for such a library and considering its current state, we approached Microsoft and suggested that we help bring the Toolkit back into a dependable and usable state. Needless to say, Microsoft agreed. The good news is that since we took on this responsibility, we've managed to clean up the codebase, introduced improved Visual Studio support, and fixed nearly 900 bugs.

Download the DevExpress Edition of the AJAX Control Toolkit today, evaluate it in your project and let us know what you think.

We know that many of our customers use the AJAX Control Toolkit and I'm happy to see that DevExpress is helping to make sure it works great in Visual Studio and supports modern web browsers.

Thanks to DevExpress I have been able to significantly improve my clients applications. Since turning to DevExpress from a competitor I have been easily able to upgrade my clients systems, and provide features that were previously virtually impossible. With the 90-odd controls available in ASP.net as well as theming I am now able to create the kind of systems that are beautiful as well as functional.

Thanks DevExpress for your great product and the excellent support you have given me thus far!
