Progress® 2024 Q2 release focuses on enabling design and development teams to rapidly build and design modern, innovative and inclusive digital experiences. Development teams will be empowered to bring AI prompts to application interfaces, while many design system enhancements will help them work with design to deliver highly customized UI. And with accessibility improvements in Charts, data visualization becomes more inclusive. Additionally, teams can satisfy complex requirements with a variety of new UI components such as the market-first Blazor Spreadsheet component, React Server components, integrations with Next.js, plus enhanced query building and embedded-reporting experience.

Telerik 2024 Q2 Highlights:

  • AI Capabilities to Innovate and Differentiate:

    • Blending AI with UI: New AI Prompt control across all Telerik libraries allows you to integrate Gen-AI capabilities into web, mobile and desktop apps. The component enables sending of prompts and then mapping the response.
    • AI integration demos: AI integration demos in Telerik Data Grid, Spreadsheet, and Rich TextBox components facilitate developers on how to enable interactions such as autocomplete, vector search, and smart formulas.
  • Accelerated Design System Capabilities:

    • Full-blown design system capabilities: Ready-to-use design system allows development teams to replicate designs to achieve consistency and exceed user expectation with modern looking apps.
    • Elevated consistency: Fostering consistency across different JavaScript and .NET web frameworks even further, this release features unified rendering to meet app standardization requirements.
