We have not changed anything in 5.0 that might directly affect the widget. I would suggest when running the control that was built for a specific version would be to use the BindingRedirect
in the web.config which will you to run controls in compatibility mode.
Please let us know if you have anymore questions.
All the best,
the Telerik team
