The current Kendo UI version is 2016.3.914.
As for the 100% height issue, web standards require elements with a percentage height to have a parent with an explicit height.
The rule applies recursively until an element with a pixel height is reached, or the root <html> element is reached. In the latter case the body and html elements need a 100% height style as well. 100% high elements cannot have margins, paddings, borders, and siblings.
I hope this helps.
