Telerik blogs

The third Telerik and Kendo UI releases of the year have arrived. Catch up on everything new – there’s a lot!

With the Telerik and Kendo UI controls and tools, our mission is to make the life of software developers easier. That means giving them everything they need to build and deliver their web, mobile and desktop applications faster, complete with feature-rich and lovely UI that application end users will love. In this journey, we are staying ahead of the curve and evaluating new technologies all the time so we can provide .NET developers the tools they need—even before they realize they need them!

With the Telerik R3 2019 release, you will be better equipped to continue doing just that. We are so proud to release the all-new Telerik UI for Blazor, which is packed with more than 25 brand-new native components!

In addition, we are happy to announce that our component .NET toolsets are fully compliant with the upcoming .NET Core 3.0 and are coming with tons of new controls and improvements.
