Our first release of the year is here. We're excited to share all the latest updates across our tools as we pursue the goal of making Modern UI easier for you.
Every day as I open the telerik.com home page, I am reminded of the goal we are pursuing—to make Modern UI easy for you. On the web, on desktop and on mobile, with your framework and programming language of choice. Enabling you to be the best developer you can possibly be.
Our first release of the year packs exactly that, allowing you to expand into modern frameworks and use modern themes—with new Kendo UI React components, Fluent design theme, massive Xamarin suite advancement and over 30 new backend database providers for our reporting solution, just to name a few. With so many platforms and frameworks we cover, there is simply too much to lay out in a single blog. So, just head over to our what's new page and browse around!
The whole release is designed to allow you to quickly and easily build apps with sleek and intuitive designs. Seeing is believing, so if you are an existing Telerik customer, dig right into the release by logging to your account and download the latest bits. Or, if you haven't recently checked out our products, I'd appreciate if you gave it another look and let me know how you like them or what we need to improve.
Check out our blogs for a product-by-product summary of all the improvements we brought to you. Be prepared for some surprises—for a few product lines we delivered more than we initially laid out in our roadmap.
Please watch me, my partner-in-crime Carl Bergenhem (Product Manager, Kendo UI) and our complete Developer Advocate team in our recorded release webinars to learn everything you need to know:
