R3 2018 Release Overview

To us, Modern UI means monitoring trends and standards and updating our developer productivity tooling products, so you get out-of-the-box features, which make your apps not only modern but accessible for all to enjoy. 

The R3 2018 Release delivers on all fronts! In addition to 20+ new controls and two new themes, we have implemented the latest WCAG 2.1 accessibility standards, so your apps are both modern and accessible by default. Check out what's new for each product line further down.
