There is a newer alternative available. This suite of ASP.NET MVC controls which was offered as
Essential Studio for ASP.NET MVC till the Volume 4 2013 release has been marked as Classic
The newer version provides
controls, offers better performance and provides better support for touch interactivity.The newer version
includes all the features that the classic version had so it should be easy to migrate if required.
general guideline is that if you are using the classic edition of controls in existing products then you
can continue to use them. However if you are starting a new project then it is recommended that you use
the newer alternative available.
Syncfusion will continue to maintain and support the classic version of
controls for several more years. We will also be happy to provide any required assistance in migrating from
the classic edition. Please create a support ticket through Direct-Trac if you need any additional details.
A new version of Essential Studio for ASP.NET is available.Versions prior to the release of
Essential Studio 2014, Volume 2, will now be referred to as Classic versions.
The new version includes all the features of the old version, so migration is easy.
Classic controls can still be used in existing projects; however, if you are starting a new project,
we recommend using the latest version of Essential Studio for ASP.NET. Although Syncfusion
will continue to support all Classic versions, we are happy to assist you in migrating to the newest
edition. For additional information, please create a support ticket in Direct-Trac.
