Waltham, MA, June 16, 2010 - The assemblies’ size of RadControls for Silverlight and consecutively the size of your XAP file is no longer an issue thanks to a brand new tool – Telerik Assembly Minifier. The end-users will immediately feel the difference too, because the loading time of your Silverlight application will be significantly decreased.

Telerik Assembly Minifier allows you to choose a list of controls to be used in your application, analyzes the dependencies between them and then produces a new set of optimized assemblies. The new assemblies will contain only the selected controls and the resources used by them. Using the Assembly Minifier you can keep the downloaded size of your application to the bare minimum. Currently the tool supports only Telerik RadControls for Silverlight and is in Beta stage.

Utilizing the optimized assemblies is super easy - just replace the old ones and reference the new, optimized assemblies in your application.
