Telerik ports .NET controls to Linux
Telerik has partnered with Novell to certify that its RadControls ASP.NET AJAX component suite supports the open-source Mono runtime environment, permitting developers to build .NET applications in a Linux environment.
RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q1 2009, released in March, is certified to work with Mono 2.4, an implementation of the Common Language Infrastructure, which Microsoft's .NET Framework is based upon.
"Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX run without error on the Mono platform," said Todd Anglin, Telerik's chief technical evangelist. "We've always wanted to enable developers to have the ultimate flexibility to run their applications wherever their environment or client requires, and by supporting Mono, Telerik enables developers to build applications using the RadControls that can run on Windows or Linux."
