Get a sneak peek at some of the new controls and features that will be available in Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX, Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC and Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core.
Happy 2019! If you hadn’t heard, next week is the first major release of the year for the Telerik and Kendo UI product lines. And while you will have to wait a few more days before you can get your hands on the latest bits, I thought I’d share the highlight reel of what will be included.
Make sure you download the latest bits or a trial on January 16 – and don’t forget to sign up for the Telerik R1 2019 release webinar where Sam Basu and Ed Charbeneau will go over all of the new additions and improvements to our web, mobile and desktop tools.
TreeView Performance Boost
With R1 2019 we have taken significant steps to improve rendering and interaction time with the TreeView, which is most noticeable in data intensive scenarios. But don’t worry, there won’t be a need to work with any new configuration; all improvements are under the hood!
Scaffolding and Support for Razor Pages in ASP.NET Core
With R1 2019 Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core will receive several scaffold templates that can easily be added in to any project to help speed up development. On top of this, as of R1 2019 we will also fully support Razor Pages to help cover more scenarios when developing with ASP.NET Core.
The Toolbar Feature Gets Added to RadChat
We’re also adding features to RadChat (our Conversational UI control). With the new toolbar feature the RadChat component can now have additional forms of input in any chat, including the ability to attach images, sound files, and any other type of file that may be needed. This toolbar can be customized to ensure that the component only offers the required inputs.
As I mentioned above, you'll be able to download the latest bits or trial on January 16 – try it out and let us know what you think. Be sure to sign up for the Telerik R1 2019 release webinar on January 18th as well for a deeper look at all the new features in the release.
