January 22, 2007

SOFIA, Bulgaria, January 22, 2007 – Telerik, the leading vendor of UI components for .NET development, is proud to announce that RadControls suite for WinForms has been named a finalist in the "Libraries, Frameworks and Components" category at the 17th Annual Software Development Jolt Product Excellence Awards, which are sponsored by CMP Media's Software Development magazine.

Famous for its coveted trophies and intense competition, the Jolt Product Excellence and Productivity Awards have been presented annually to showcase products that have "jolted" the industry with their significance and made the task of creating software faster, easier, and more efficient. Jolt Cola, the fabled soft drink quaffed by software developers for sustenance during project development marathons, sponsors the awards presentation.

"We are honored to be a finalist, especially given other esteemed co-nominees such as Microsoft and Intel”, comments Svetozar Georgiev, Telerik CEO. “This recognition confirms our commitment to roll out trend-setting products that stretch the limits of today’s technology. It is rewarding to witness how renowned Jolt Awards judges and industry gurus see the innovative ideas and value that RadControls for WinForms brings to our customers.”

The latest RadControls release brings the first ever Vista-style controls for Windows Forms. The product enables developers to build previously impossible interfaces with highly attractive features like scaling, rotation, Flash-like animations, windowless architecture, transparencies, and much more.

Other finalists in the category are .NET Framework 3.0 by Microsoft, Intel Threading Building Blocks for Linux, and The Mono Project from Novell.

The awards ceremony will take place on March 21 during SD West Conference and Expo 2007, which attracts more than 3,000 software developers, renowned industry speakers, and press annually. More information on the Jolt Product Excellence and Productivity Awards is available at:
