    I have to post that question here since we have no more write access to the Kendo UI forums, tho we have Platform professional subscriptions. Unfortunately there is no more Kendo UI Mobile forum, only Kendo UI and native extensions (UI ....).


    My question:

    We paused our kendo development for some time and would like to upgrade from 2014.2.1020 to the current release.Now we have some problems to detect the right scripts for including what was formerly the kendo.mobile.min.js.

    In the documentation about what to include it still says to include "kendo.mobile.min.js", what is clearly outdated for some time:


    We also tried the download builder, but the newest supported release there is 2015.1.x, but 2015.3.x is the most recent one.

    We got everything working again by including the kendo.ui.core.min.js script, but it's three times larger than the previous kendo.mobile.min.js script, so I assume that's not the perfect way to use it.


    Just as a side question: all these changes together seem to show some kind of turning away from Kendo UI Mobile. Should we prepare to move to other frameworks or NativeScript for mobile only hybrid development?


    Thanks in advance for any help regarding the script includes,

    Meanwhile I tried the following:


    * Telerik Control Panel

    -> Downloads "Kendo UI Professional Q2 2014" as latest realease

    * AppBuilder -> new Kendo UI Project

    -> gives me 2015.2.805, not the latest one but at least I would have a kendo.mobile.min.js


    I'm still wondering why there seem to be no way to download a kendo.mobile.min.js directly from my account products when having a Telerik Platform subscription.

    But since nobody replied here, i guess it's just like that. Strange.

    Hi Marc,

    You can get the latest version of the kendo.mobile.min.js package through the AppBuilder package manager. Right click on your project -> Manage Packages -> Kendo UI -> Select the version of Kendo UI Core you want to install and click Install. Since this is a mobile hybrid app this will download and add the kendo.mobile.min.js package to a kendo folder in your project. It will override the kendo folder if one already exists. I advise you try this in a new project first if you have used the kendo.ui.core.js until now, because the package manager can delete your kendo folder. Also, the package manager doesn't update references in the index.html file, so you might have to update this yourself if you used a different package.

    Let me know if this works for you.

    Hi Martin,

    using the package manager inside the AppBuilder works fine indeed. I somehow missed that option.

    Thank you very much for your help.
