Two "must-have" SharePoint addon products were released earlier today. The first is a cross browser compatible replacement for the rich text editor in MOSS 2007 that was mentioned on this blog about 6 weeks ago. The second is an offline reader for WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007 sites, which I highly recommend for staying up to date with frequently updated sites such as the SharePoint Community Portal. And yes, they are both available for free!
With the release of the r.a.d.editor for MOSS, Telerik has taken into account the feedback they gathered during the beta period. In addition to the downloadable file on their website at http://www.telerik.com/sharepoint, Telerik has also published a Deployment and Customization manual as well as a Feature Comparison guide for r.a.d.editor for MOSS vs. the OOTB MOSS rich-text editor vs. the full featured r.a.d.editor for ASP.NET.
Colligo Reader for SharePoint enables you to easily download content from SharePoint sites to your laptop, so you can access the content offline rather than having to copy files one by one through a browser. Reader is a client-only application, and no server modifications are required. If you want the ability to add or update SharePoint content offline, Colligo offers a full featured Contributor for SharePoint product.
I look forward to seeing (and using) many more innovative SharePoint addons from our ISV partners in the coming months!
