There are many other new exciting features in this release as well. Here is list of just few of them:

  • Office 2007 Style Progress bar. You can see the picture of it in status bar of Ribbon sample shown in image above
  • Complete support for Ribbon Menu Tabs. This feature allows you to keep ribbon collapsed and use it as menu. Very nice and very, very useful. You can get better idea on what I am talking about here. There is a nice movie showing this feature in action. You should check it out.
  • Gallery Groups feature to automatically group items on gallery popup
  • Very smooth animated scrolling for Gallery control… Try scrolling gallery in RibbonPad sample 😉
  • There are many other new features and improvements in this release. Complete release notes as usual can be found in help file.

The 6.1 release is available now as fully functional trial version that you can download and start playing with right away.

Work on next release is already underway 😉

Enjoy!
