As the official ASP.NET Core 1.0 RTM grows closer, we continue to improve our support for Microsoft's newest features in our UI for ASP.NET MVC.
I'm eager to share that UI for ASP.NET MVC R2 2016 SP1 is out and features not only bug fixes and improvements, but also highly demanded support for ASP.NET Core 1.0 RC2.
ASP.NET Core 1.0 RC2 Compliance and Benefits
Among the top benefits of Microsoft's new framework are:
- Cross-platform web application development for Windows, Mac and Linux OS
- The Tag Helpers are quite similar to the HTML tags, which however are processed by Razor on the server.
- Nuget, Bower and Gulp package managers and automation tools boost your productivity
In our UI for ASP.NET MVC suite, the components and Tag Helpers are tested against ASP.NET Core 1.0 RC2 and fully satisfy its requirements. This allows you to use them and create web apps with beautiful UI, as well as rich and useful functionality that run on any of the three supported platforms: Mac, Linux and Windows.
Download, Install and More
You can download the latest UI for ASP.NET MVC (full name: Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core MVC 1.0 RC2 Final 2016.2.607) from the up-to-date NuGet feed. Along with the download links, you'll find on the page installation instructions. You can also check our official ASP.NET Core (MVC6) page and this blog post for more details.

Fresh News and Roadmap Plans
We continue to follow the progress towards the official version of ASP.NET
Core 1.0 RTM closely. It's expected on June 27, and shortly we are going to release a special Service Pack version of our components and Tag Helpers dedicated to it.
We are also ready with the Roadmap for R3 2016, so soon we are going to blog about the new highly anticipated features and controls that you've requested and expect. The MVC Roadmap page will be updated accordingly.
