Release of Telerik DevCraft R1 2017 enhances offerings for modern web and mobile UI development

Progress announced the latest release of the Progress Telerik DevCraft suite, a complete UI toolbox for web, mobile and desktop development. New capabilities support the latest programming frameworks and IDEs, including Angular, Visual Studio 2017, jQuery 3, ASP.NET Core and Xamarin. In addition, the release provides new tooling for faster desktop development, such as enhanced document processing libraries and data components across all desktop suites.

Kendo UI for Angular RC

Progress has announced the release candidate of Progress Kendo UI for Angular, a suite of high performance Angular 2 UI components for building native Angular web applications. Each component has been engineered natively for Angular 2, with each feature carefully aligned to the framework guidelines and without any jQuery dependencies.
In addition, the existing UI widgets that were initially shipped in beta that are now in release candidate stage, the Kendo UI for Angular RC suite includes four new components: MaskedTextBox, NumericTextBox, AutoComplete and MultiSelect. It also offers support for ahead-of-time compilation, universal rendering and tree shaking as well as grid grouping and editing. The Kendo UI for Angular RC suite is now included as part of Kendo UI Professional, Kendo UI Complete and Telerik DevCraft bundles.

Kendo UI for jQuery

The Kendo UI for jQuery suite now provides support and performance enhancements for jQuery 3, including Grid and Spreadsheet widget improvements. Adding to the more than 70 UI components that deliver everything developers need to build beautiful and responsive apps in half the time, all Kendo UI for jQuery components work seamlessly with Angular and support Angular directives.

Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 RC

As announced previously, based on our long-standing commitment to Microsoft, the Telerik DevCraft suite is fully compatible with Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 RC, enabling developers to create high-performance and scalable web, mobile and desktop applications for any Microsoft platform or device. Developers can take advantage of the new benefits of Visual Studio while continuing to enjoy productivity gains enabled by Telerik UI controls for all major Microsoft developer platforms.

Additional Advancements

All .NET UI suites include enhancements to improve the quick “getting started” experience for developers. This includes new tag helpers in their UI component for ASP.NET Core, new project wizards and sample apps for Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC, a new Xamarin project template wizard for Visual Studio for Mac, extended Smart Tags in Telerik UI for WPF and the official release of the their API Analyzer for WPF for simplifying the upgrade of WPF projects to a new version.
“Microsoft released the .NET framework 15 years ago and since its inception, we have been the first stop for developers looking to build and deploy on the technology. We have and will continue to provide up-to-date tools, ahead of the competition and backed by the most comprehensive support available,” said Faris Sweis, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Developer Tooling, Progress. “No matter what the app platform - mobile, web or desktop - our DevCraft offering provides the most innovative and complete toolbox for building modern and future-proof applications.”
