Bertrand Le Roy posted earlier today about the new 20820 release of the AJAX Control Toolkit! In addition to being compiled for the recently available .NET 3.5 SP1 platform and containing a new user-contributed control (MultiHandleSlider by Daniel Crenna), this release is also notable from my perspective because it represents the first release for which I was not directly involved. As much as I've enjoyed working on the Toolkit, there are only so many hours in the day; organizational changes and my present responsibilities developing for Silverlight are taking up all of my time. So it has been fantastic to have Bertrand continue moving the Toolkit project forward and taking care of all the many tasks that go into publishing a new release.

Congratulations to Bertrand - and all the individual contributors! Thank you for the hard work that made this release possible!
