We are excited to announce lightning fast support for .NET 6 and Visual Studio 2022 across all Telerik UI components, Document Processing Libraries, Reporting and JustMock tooling!
The Telerik teams at Progress have worked hard to ensure the massive update is available to you immediately after the official Microsoft releases, so you can take advantage of the latest and greatest in .NET 6 and VS 2022. In this blog post, we will take a closer look and see what’s new in Telerik UI components, libraries, tooling and Visual Studio extensions.
The official release of .NET 6, the next-generation platform that unites the .NET Framework and .NET Core, is now available! .NET 6 brings performance improvements and new capabilities to web, desktop, mobile and hybrid applications, and because it is an LTS (long-term supported) version, that means it will be officially supported until November 2024 (three years after its initial release).
Since the release of .NET 5 last year, we have continuously followed all preview releases of .NET 6 and ensured our product updates are compatible with them, meaning you could immediately plug in the latest version and try out the new .NET features even in its early days.
Now that .NET 6 is officially shipped, what does it mean for your current and new applications? With the instant support provided by Telerik, you can upgrade existing projects or start a new project using .NET 6 and Telerik right away. All you need to do is download the latest .NET SDK and the respective Telerik product version. If you are an active license holder, you can grab the November update from the “Your Account” page or update your NuGet package reference directly in your solutions.
Alternatively, everyone can download a free trial by head over to the respective product homes at:
If you prefer to stay on your current version of .NET, you can rest assured that we continue to support them as well.
Following the latest technology trends, we also provided early support for Telerik UI components, extensions and project templates for Visual Studio 2022 since June 2021 and now with the official release you can:
Below is a handy list of the available Visual Studio 2022 extensions, which you can download from Visual Studio Marketplace or as part of the product installers:

In addition to the overall excitement of the Telerik products support for .NET 6 and Visual Studio 2022, we wanted to spotlight a few attractive product-specific updates.

Just a couple of weeks ago, we announced the launch of two new cool browser-based playgrounds for creating, saving, running and sharing C# code snippets: Telerik REPL for ASP.NET Core and Telerik REPL for Blazor (REPL as Read–Eval–Print-Loop). Both REPLs also provide seamless integration with Telerik UI components and let you test and customize them effortlessly in the browser without any addition setup and configuration.
Today we are happy to announce that both code runners provide support for .NET 6 and Share to REPL feature from Visual Studio 2022, thus allowing you to take advantage of the latest Telerik UI for Blazor, Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core and .NET 6 packages!
