For details on the new features included with this release, please see Stephen Walther's blog post at http://stephenwalther.com/archive/2013/07/25/july-2013-release-of-the-ajax-control-toolkit
- Control Bundles - Use Control Bundles to specify the subset of the Ajax Control Toolkit controls that you want to use in your app. Control Bundles can substantially improve the performance of your app by enabling you to download only the scripts that you need.
- CombineScripts Handler - Use the new AjaxControlToolkit.CombineScripts handler to cache Ajax Control Toolkit scripts for an entire app. To take advantage of the CombineScripts handler, you need to register the handler in your web.config file (see the sample website).
- Visual Studio 2012 Solution - Starting with this release, you must use Visual Studio 2012 when working with the Ajax Control Toolkit source code. We no longer maintain separate Visual Studio 2008, Visual Studio 2010, and Visual Studio 2012 solution and project files.
- Sanitizer Providers - The Sanitizer Providers no longer ship in a separate assembly. The code has been merged into the AjaxControlToolkit.dll assembly. You will need to update your web.config file (see the sample website).
