The 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.
The 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.
