Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core

Support for .NET 9 Previews

Improvement

Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core will fully support the upcoming .NET 9 previews. Our team is committed to ensuring compatibility and taking full advantage of the new features and improvements in .NET 9.

End of Support for .NET 7

Improvement
You may already be aware that Microsoft discontinued .NET 7 support in May 2024. We would like to inform you that our plans are in line with this decision, and we will be ending our .NET 7 support in November. This will give you extra time to transition from .NET 7 to .NET 8. By upgrading to the most recent version of .NET, you will leverage the latest features, performance enhancements, and security improvements offered by both Microsoft and Telerik. This upgrade will ensure that you can make the most of the cutting-edge advancements provided by both entities.

Sunsetting the NuGet v2 Server

Improvement

As the .NET ecosystem evolves, so do our services. We are sunsetting our NuGet v2 server at nuget.telerik.com/nuget in 2024. Please switch to the v3 server at nuget.telerik.com/v3/index.json for better performance, security, and reliability. The steps to upgrade are simple and require only one change to your NuGet package source URL to https://nuget.telerik.com/v3/index.json

 

PDFViewer: Annotations and Form Filling

New feature
The PDFViewer will support Annotations and Form Filling, enhancing the utility and functionality of PDF documents. Annotations enable users to collaborate, review, and provide feedback, making them essential for communication and document editing. Form filling capabilities will make applications more versatile and user-friendly by allowing users to interactively fill out forms within PDF documents.

 

PDFViewer Improvements

Improvement

In our forthcoming updates, we will implement progressive enhancements to the PDFViewer component.

Accessibility Improvements

Improvement

In our upcoming 2024 releases, we will continue with our efforts to improve the overall accessibility of Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core components, ensuring the highest level of compliance with WAI-ARIA, Section 508, and the latest WCAG standards.

PivotGridv2 Parity with PivotGrid

Improvement

We aim to provide complete feature parity between the previously existing and the newer PivotGrid components and enable you with resources to facilitate easy migration to the latest version.

New Data Visualization Features

Improvement

We are introducing several enhancements to our charting capabilities, designed to improve data visualization and accessibility.

Users can now apply patterns in chart rendering, adding a new dimension of visual distinction to data points.

In scenarios where no data is available, charts will display a 'No Data' label, ensuring clarity and user awareness. Further enhancing accessibility, we have improved the Sankey diagram with keyboard navigation for nodes and links, as well as right-to-left support.

These updates ensure our charts are not only visually appealing but also inclusive and accessible to all users, reinforcing our commitment to delivering comprehensive and user-friendly data visualization tools.

Telerik and Kendo UI Design Kits for Figma Upgrade!

Improvement
Significant overhaul to our Figma UI Kits is on the way! Central to these updates is the introduction of a rich variables library, seamlessly integrated with our design system. This library includes dynamic color, spacing, and radii variables, ensuring consistency and flexibility across your designs. Additionally, we're enhancing our Typography and Elevation systems to provide even more design possibilities. Dark mode enthusiasts will rejoice as we introduce Dark mode options, complemented by common theme color swatches. Our file structure has been revamped for improved organization, making it easier than ever to find what you need. Stay tuned for the addition of new components, including updates aligned with MS Fluent 2. Detailed component descriptions and improved color contrast are planned later in the year. Get ready for a smoother, more efficient design workflow with our upcoming Kendo and Telerik UI kits for Figma upgrade!

Design System Documentation

Improvement

We launched the new Telerik and Kendo UI design system documentation site containing resources, design assets and frontend documentation for Telerik and Kendo UI libraries.

Progress Design System site contains related design and frontend documentation for nearly 30 of the most essential components, and we aim to continuously expand it with the ultimate goal of providing everything you need to create intuitive and beautiful digital experiences and design systems based on Telerik and Kendo UI component libraries.

Our plan is to continuously enhance the design system documentation site throughout 2024 and allow you to easily build your own design system based on Telerik and Kendo UI components.

Adaptiveness of ASP.NET Core UI Components

Improvement

The Data Grid, Toolbar, Pager, Window and Breadcrumb UI components will be enhanced to support adaptive behavior, so that their design and UX is seamless regardless of the device they displayed.

Color System Evolution

Improvement
We are introducing a new unified color system across all Kendo themes, ensuring a shared palette of colors. This enhancement will foster consistency and efficiency in styling across various themes, while also decreasing the size of theme files. In May 2024, the new  color system system will become default. Both color systems will be available until Q2 2025, giving you time to adapt at your own pace. For additional details, refer to our blog post.

Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core API Improvements

Improvement

We are undertaking the effort to make improvements to the product’s API in the next several releases throughout 2024. The goal is to address feedback we received regarding the level of details, descriptions, and examples included in the UI for ASP.NET Core API.
