We have an app based on the Kendo UI Mobile framework. It makes heavy use of widgets like the kendoMobileView, kendoMobileLayout, etc, all wrapped in a kendoMobileApplication.  Is there a recommended path to upgrade this stack to support the move to Angular 2? I'm most concerned with the app state management and the ability of making headers and footers sticky and persistent between views by using a layout. Burke Holland's article seems to suggest moving over to Bootstrap but it's been difficult to find definitive answers.

Hi Marlon,

Thank you for your interest in Kendo UI for Angular 2.

This is a new and separate product, currently in beta stage and free for use and community preview. We will release a commercial offering in 2017 and that will also include dedicated support service.

In the meantime, the Community & Support page outlines the available options to receive technical assistance via StackOverflow or Telerik Professional Services, or report issues in our kendo-angular2 GitHub repository, or submit feature requests in our UserVoice Portal.

Stay tuned and keep an eye on our Kendo UI for Angular 2 site and the roadmap, the Telerik blogs (specifically, the Kendo UI Product Manager posts) and GitHub repository for updates.

Regarding the specific question, like mentioned in the discussed article, the Kendo UI for Angular 2 components are based on entirely different concepts than their jQuery counterparts, and therefore unfortunately there is no support, and recommended approach for migrating from one to the other, or integrating the jQuery widgets in an Angular 2 application.
