We cannot exactly disclose what control is going to be available by a specific time due to the nature of .NET previews. What I can say is that you can judge our dedication by just seeing how early we started announcing and releasing preview MAUI controls. We want to ensure that developers have the tools they need to build engaging and best-in-class user experiences in their MAUI projects.
Early Preview Expectations
Keep in mind that MAUI is still in early preview, it has only been several weeks since anyone could even get their hands on useable framework bits. The fact is, you cannot even build and release a project yet, that will come this fall when .NET 6 is released. Instead of making developers wait until .NET 6 is released, we will be opening up more and more controls with each .NET 6 preview (and sometimes in between) for you to experiment with them and be ready when that day .NET 6 has a go-live license.
I recommend that you follow Sam Basu's blog posts to learn every time we release more controls. He will provide a summary of the new items and links to the bits, docs and demos. You can start with Sam's most recent post Sands of MAUI: Issue #13 (telerik.com). Sam's posts up until now will tell you the whole story.
Requesting Features and Controls
If you have a request for a certain control take priority over other kinds of controls, please open Feature Request here https://feedback.telerik.com/maui, this will let the dev team gauge demand. If you find any product defects, please open a Bug Report in the same portal.
The bottom line is to remember it is still a very early preview, and development is an ongoing and fast paced process. Because of this, I strongly recommend staying tuned to blog/social announcements and experimenting with the preview releases as you go to fix any breaking changes Microsoft introduces as the previews get closer to release.
