Holiday support in the Scheduler

As of R2 2018, the Scheduler control in Telerik UI for WinForms includes support for holidays. The scheduler is a basic component for calendar and other meeting applications, which are agenda-centric and as such requires the ability to mark holidays. With the holiday feature users will be able to mark certain dates as non-working or block them to prevent bookings or meetings of taking place. Additionally, users will be able to import Outlook .hol files, which will automatically mark dates in the control as holidays.
