Dear Kendo team,

Our organization security vulnerability team has reported us on Jquery version 1.12.3 which is shipped with Kendo(2017.2.504) package and advised us to update to Jquery 3.5.1, we have read here that Kendo 2020.2.513 version supports Jquery 3.5.1. We would like hear from you if you would recommend this shift, if yes what implications do you foresee in terms of Compatibility, Existing control initialization and events based on your support experience and any best practice guide for migration

Kendo 2017.2.504 to 2020.2.513

Jquery 1.12.3 to Jquery 3.5.1

 

Thanks, Ashok

Hello Ashok,

Kendo UI version 2020.2.513 is indeed compatible with jQuery 3.5.1. So you can safely upgrade. The latest Kendo UI version (2020.2.617) is also compatible with jQuery 3.5.1, thus we would recommend upgrading to this version, instead of 2020.2.513.

With regard to potential issues that upgrading may cause, this depends on the specific components and functionality you use. Although breaking changes are rarely introduced, there have been such over the years, so as a best practice advice, we would recommend going through the breaking changes section of the documentation: https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/backwards-compatibility/2020-backward-compatibility

Breaking changes are listed per release. Make sure you've checked those in the R2 2017 - R2 2020 SP1 time period, since they could affect your application, and make the necessary modifications where needed.

Regards,
Ivan Danchev
