Just a few moments ago we made available the 10201 release of the AJAX Control Toolkit to address some of the most significant issues reported since the 10123 release last week. We chose these issues based on feedback from our users in our support forum and online issue tracker and tried to prioritize issues with widespread benefits while minimizing the risks of breaking anything.

In particular, we:

  • Fixed problems that occurred when using the new AutoComplete or Tabs controls inside an UpdatePanel
  • Improved the localization behavior of the Calendar so that it works better in other countries/time zones
  • Simplified and improved the implementation of the new "draggable popup" feature of ModalPopup
  • Addressed a TextBoxWatermark focus issue that was inconveniencing users

Recall that you can sample any of the controls right now (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!

If you have any feedback, please share it with us on the support forum (or email me)!
