What's New

What’s New in the R2 2018 Release

Modern UI for .NET & JavaScript. Now supporting Chatbots

R2 2018 Release Overview

Modern UI means more than updating our developer tooling products features and supporting new frameworks. It means exploring new UI paradigms and doing the heavy lifting and exploring so when you are ready for it, our products are already battle-tested.

This is exactly what we developed in this release – Conversational UI for making it easier to develop for Chatbots which are now included in ALL our products. While the future of modern UI is in adaptive cards and chatbots, the present is very much in need of quality web, desktop and mobile controls and R2 2018 release delivers on both! Check out what's new for each product line further down.

If you are an existing Telerik customer, dig right into the release by logging to your account and download the latest bits. Or, if you haven't recently checked out our products, we'd appreciate if you give them another try and let us know how you like them or what we need to improve.
