Reviews for this release

Very cool. And, with a view to performance, which is always nice.

Not bad, although the AJAX control toolkit v1.0 was a bit slow and buggy in places. If only we all had time to research new tech! Keep it up though! P.S. Some of the functions in the earlier releases were duplicates of what was already in the toolkit, oh and... FloatingBehavior.callBaseMethod(this, 'initialize'); - shouldn't be needed in the floating behaviour initializer...

A great work combining ASP.NET and Ajax. Puts you on top of todays web application model. Combines the powers of MS Visual Studio 2008, Silverlight, SQL Server 2005 to bring forward an excellent Ajax-based ASP.NET webportal with ASP.NET 3.5. I strongly recommend this for web developers.
