Telerik blogs

Microsoft unveiled the brand new Visual Studio 2019 today, and we've ensured our Telerik and Kendo UI development tools are already compatible.

Progress has a long-standing tradition in ensuring its Telerik development tools are able to provide zero-day support for any and all new .NET advancements. So it should come as no surprise that the moment Microsoft announced the availability of the latest Visual Studio 2019 Preview on stage at the Microsoft Connect(); event that Progress simultaneously announced the availability of its Visual Studio 2019 compatible controls for all Telerik tools.

Magically (or through the power of technology, as the case may be), when the Visual Studio 2019 Preview went live, the compatible tools became available. You can download the extensions from the Marketplace:

Telerik UI for ASP.NET CoreTelerik UI for ASP.NET MVCTelerik Reporting, and JustMock extensions will be available with our next major release (January 2019).

Each of the toolkits provides access to more than 70 ready-to-use UI controls (some toolkits have double that amount). Grid, Dropdown and Menu, and advanced line-of-business controls such as Charts, Gantt, Diagram, Scheduler, PivotGrid and Maps are just a few of the modern controls that come standard in each suite.

For those not familiar with what’s in the Visual Studio 2019 Preview, we think you’ll be impressed. Here are a few of the highlights:

Visual Studio InitelliCode Custom Repos (Public Preview). Visual Studio IntelliCode is previewing a new capability – AI-enhanced IntelliSense recommendations based on your code. You can now train IntelliCode on your own C# repos, further enhancing recommendations  based on your own patterns and your code’s specific libraries.

Visual Studio Live Share. Visual Studio Live Share is integrated in Visual Studio 2019, meaning every Visual Studio developer can take advantage of Live Share’s real-time collaboration features.

And if that’s not enough, here are a few more highlights:

  • Improved search accuracy for menus, commands, options, and installable components
  • Updated menu and title bar to increase space for code
  • One-click code cleanup command for documents, projects and solutions
  • Improved debugging
  • The ability to submit Pull Requests in the IDE
  • New project template overview
  • The ability to authenticate with GitHub
  • IntelliCode model-sharing and C++ Support
  • More refactoring options
  • Smarter debugging
  • And more…

As with most things Microsoft these days, they are extremely transparent with their roadmap. Make sure you spend some time looking around. While you are there, you can also find links to the Visual Studio release rhythm to give you a better understanding of when to expect updates; the Previews downloads page; and the Developer Community website where you can log your suggestions.

And speaking for logging your suggestions, as you start to play with Visual Studio 2019 and our compatible tools, make sure you share your feedback, thoughts, and needs with our engineering teams. The more feedback we get from you, the more likely we are to meet and exceed your needs and expectations.

Happy coding!
