A short while ago we made available the 10618 release of the AJAX Control Toolkit. This release addresses a handful of user-impacting issues introduced by changes in the recent 10606 release and identified by the user community in the support forum and online issue tracker. Significant changes always have the risk of introducing problems so we do our best to find and fix them all before releasing. But for things that manage to sneak through, a targeted follow-up release is often a good way to fix annoyances quickly.

The release notes from the sample web site detail the improvements in the new release:

General fixes:

  • Tabs: Resolved NamingContainer issues so that FindControl works as expected in Tabs.
  • ToolkitScriptManager: Shorter combined script URLs and new HTTP handler support for generation of combined script files.
  • Dependencies: Removed explicit reference to VsWebSite.Interop.dll and stdole.dll. They will not be automatically included in the web configuration files by Visual Studio.
  • FilteredTextBox: Navigation, Control and Delete keys work fine in all browsers.
  • Localization: Turkish, Dutch, and Traditional and Simplified Chinese language support added.

As always, it's easy to 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!

PS - Last week I blogged an overview of the ToolkitScriptManager introduced in the 10606 release. ToolkitScriptManager has gotten even better in this release, and I'll be writing more about it later this week!
