    Are there plans for a 4.0 community edition?  If so what is the expected release date?

    thanks.

    Thanks Steve.  I guess I should search a little more before posting.  Not to start another thread but most of the comments are what I expected.  Hobbyists are the most upset and developers who have clients that can pay understand.

    The one area that I think Telerik will hurt a bit is the free input they get from the community.  We have all seen this model at work before.  Offer a free edition, get free input and feedback, build a user base, and then switch to a licensing model.  It is happening right now with MYSQL.  

    I think if Telerik continues to support the 3.7 community the way they have demonstrated in the past, then I think this will mostly be a non-event.  The 4.0 platform looks to be  much more involved.  Building chotchkees.com on 4.0 would seem to be a bit overkill.

    joe.
