The second major release of 2017 for the Progress Telerik developer tools is here, and it’s jam packed with new productivity features. Read on for a breakdown.
As we get ready for the /build conference where we will come out in force (and yes, this means a pre-con party plus some surprises), we have some big announcements to make here at home.
Firstly, the new website look and feel—we hope it gets you to your favorite tools faster and more easily! In addition, now you have better visibility into the vast portfolio of the wider company—check out all that Progress has to offer! Some cool stuff for devs in there for many data-related scenarios.
If you are going to be at the /build conference, please stop by the Telerik booth (#108) to see the latest bits in action. For the other millions of other .NET ninjas who aren’t lucky enough to grab one of the ~6000 /build tickets, there is a webinar for that! Also, note I am focusing on all things .NET here. For summary of the Kendo UI R2 2017 release, head over to Petyo’s blog post for Angular and Typescript fans.
But you are reading this post for the product news—right? So, without further ado, here is the Telerik R2 2017 summary. Go grab a coffee, there is plenty to explore here and ultimately improve your productivity.
We have 3 new components, Visual Studio templates and added new features to existing components. See it all at the Xamarin what’s new page and in this blog post.
The already robust suite now has support for the Bootstrap 4 theme as well as the new Sass theme. See it all at the ASP.NET MVC what's new page and the ASP.NET Core what’s new pages.
A new Virtual Grid Control, Material Design Theme and tons of improvements and features for the already available controls. See more details at the UI for WPF what's new page and in this blog post.
UI for WinForms is the first suite on the market with High DPI Support. We are also introducing a new Material Design theme and further improvements to our controls. See more details at the UI for WinForms what’s new page and in this blog post.
If you didn’t catch the news, we open sourced UWP controls under the Apache 2.0 license. That said, we are continually adding new features, and have added accessibility features to the suite. See it all at the UWP what's new page and in this blog post.
We have added Angular 2 support and ODBC support. See it all at the Reporting what's new page.
JustMock now comes with Visual Studio 2017 compatibility! See details at the JustMock what's new page and in this blog post.
