The long-awaited service pack 1 of WebUI Studio.NET 2008 R1 is finally here. We’ve made significant updates and enhancements to all areas of the products based on the feedback that we received since the initial release.
Two of the most noteworthy enhancements are:
- Strong x64 bit support in all version of Windows (including XP, Vista and Server 2003/2008). All our assemblies are now fully compatible with native 64bit mode IIS Web application. So, if you’re deploying to Windows Server x64 edition, you should upgrade your Web application to 2008 R1 SP1.
Note that the x64 bit support doesn’t require separate assembly, so each single assembly can be used in both x32 and x64 environment.
- New Charting runtime engine for Pivot Charting feature in WebGrid.NET Enterprise 6.0. If you’ve deployed applications using Pivot Charting feature, reading this Whitepaper is a must!
The new, built-in Charting runtime engine is a royalty free component that is OEM licensed, and redeveloped by our engineers to meet the full backward compatibility with previous runtime engine that we licensed from third party. In this new Service Pack, we no longer distribute the runtime engine from the previous third party Charting component.
There are also dozens of exciting enhancements, such as full RTL support in WebScheduler as mentioned in Erika’s post and significantly updated WebScheduler documentation. We also included the large data enhancement for WebGrid and ISDataSource in this Service Pack 1.

All the best,
