Telerik UI for Blazor 0.2.0 is available for download today. This release makes Telerik UI for Blazor compatible with Visual Studio 2019 preview 2, and ASP.NET Core 3.0 preview 2.
A few weeks ago we released an early preview of Telerik UI for Blazor. The early preview is intended to give developers a peek into the development process while giving everyone a chance to share their feedback on the product. We are working closely to align our goals with those of Microsoft's ASP.NET Core team, which is why we're happy to announce Telerik UI for Blazor 0.2.0. This new version aligns our UI components with the ASP.NET Core 3.0 preview 2 and Blazor 0.8.0 release.
In this release you may not see a lot of changes on the surface, but we've diligently kept up with things that are happening beneath the surface of the framework. ASP.NET Core 3.0 preview-2 marks a milestone for Razor Components, the underlying component model for Blazor. In preview 2, Razor Components has been decoupled from Blazor, making the component model much more flexible (for more about this see the preview 2 announcements). The change shifted some dependencies and name spaces used to power Telerik UI for Blazor, prompting us add compatibility with the new release.
Telerik UI for Blazor is now compatible with:
Going forward Telerik UI for Blazor 0.1.0 is only compatible with Visual Studio 2017. You will need to migrate your experiments along with your tooling to Visual Studio 2019 to utilize 0.2.0.
Besides supporting the new latest bits some small changes were made to the Grid component:
<RowTemplate ... />
<KendoGrid Data=@GridData Height=@Height>
We're committed to Telerik UI for Blazor and plan to release more content in the form of video, blogs, and samples on GitHub.
