ScriptManager is the standard .NET Framework class that manages ASP.NET Ajax script libraries and script files and this is why it has been referenced in the manual. So far I have not encountered issues when I am using RadScriptManager which comes from Telerik bundle. If you are experiencing any problems, let us know because they could be some bugs that we have missed.
