One of our goals in 2023 was to improve the Telerik and Kendo UI products quality, theming mechanism and Content Security Policy (CSP) compliance. What strict CSP app settings do is prevent hackers from using HTML injection flaws to force the browser to execute a malicious script. This policy is especially effective against cross-site scripting attacks. Here is what we did so far to ensure strict CSP compliance in Telerik UI for Blazor:
The themes will continue to support both font and SVG icons in components, thus allowing you to decide which type of icons to take advantage of. However, using the font icons will require a separate stylesheet to be referenced by clients.
This third and last step allows us to provide customers with a more secure and efficient icon system and the option to load and reference only needed resources.
Check out the dedicated blog post to find more information on the strategy for improving Telerik and Kendo UI web component libraries by moving from font to SVG icons.
We continue our efforts to improve the overall accessibility of Telerik UI for Blazor components, now ensuring compliance with WAI-ARIA, Section 508and WCAG, including the just released WCAG 2.2 standard.
Being compliant with the new WCAG 2.2 standard means that Telerik and Kendo UI products have covered the mandatory requirements for Minimum Target Size and Navigable Guidelines through default theme accessibility swatch and the large size of our components. To meet the Dragging Movement Criteria, we have flexible APIs or built-in functionality. Check out the blog post highlighting what’s new in WCAG 2.2.
