R1 2018 introduces the brand new, built from the ground-up, React UI components! These components are React through and through and we are very excited to get these in your hands. The initial list of components include:
Record Number of Issues Resolved
The R1 2018 release had a huge focus on squashing bugs and improving as much as possible under the hood of Kendo UI. As a part of this effort we closed over 250 issues across our public and internal issue trackers, making R1 2018 one of the most robust release to date.
The DataSource component has a long history of supporting OData, but a couple of things have been missing from the v4 spec specifically. As a part of our continued commitment to OData we have introduced batch processing support. Look out for more OData v4 improvements throughout 2018!
The ButtonGroup widget has long been a part of the hybrid mobile UI portion of Kendo UI, which has seemed a bit clunky to include when building desktop or responsive web applications. With this release we added the ButtonGroup to the standard Kendo UI for easier implementation.
For the Vue.js developers out there we have now fully wrapped the jQuery components so you can now take advantage of the full power of Kendo UI within any Vue.js view. We will continue to add resources and demos to ensure that you can pick these up easily!
The wrappers we introduced for React have also expanded, including almost all of the UI widgets offered in the jQuery edition of Kendo UI. These work hand-in-hand with our new React components so there's plenty of options for widgets to add in to your existing and upcoming React projects.
Our Angular components also received updates with new components and features across the board. In terms of new components we are now releasing some of the most requested components, namely:
We also added a bunch of new functionality to our Grid, including:
There are also a lot of other fixes and functionalities added throughout the other Angular packages.
