Telerik UI for WinForms

End of Support for .NET 7

New feature

You may already be aware that Microsoft discontinued .NET 7 support in May 2024. We would like to inform you that our plans are in line with this decision, and we will be ending our .NET 7 support for UI for WinForms in November. This will give you extra time to transition from .NET 7 to .NET 8.

 

By upgrading to the most recent version of .NET, you will leverage the latest features, performance enhancements, and security improvements offered by both Microsoft and Telerik. This upgrade will ensure that you can make the most of the cutting-edge advancements provided by both entities.

Support for .NET 9 Preview

New feature
We are thrilled to announce that our suite will soon support .NET 9 Preview, aligning with our commitment to embrace the latest technological advancements. This update will enable developers to take full advantage of the new features and improvements in .NET 9, ensuring that applications built with our components are at the forefront of innovation.

Improved accessibility by utilizing UI Automation (UIA)

New feature
We are dedicated to enhancing the accessibility of our WinForms components. As part of this commitment, we are introducing improvements by utilizing UI Automation (UIA). This feature will ensure that our WinForms controls are more accessible to users with disabilities, providing a better user experience and complying with accessibility standards.

 

 

GridView Enhancement: New Select Column

Sunsetting the NuGet v2 Server

The steps to upgrade are simple and require only one change to your NuGet package source URL to https://nuget.telerik.com/v3/index.json.
