There's a new version of the Progress Telerik DevCraft suite with support for Angular, Visual Studio 2017, and JQuery 3.
Progress acquired Telerik in 2014, and incorporated its development software with the Progress Open Edge platform.
The new release of the Progress Telerik DevCraft suite can be used for web, mobile and desktop development. The suite now supports Angular, Visual Studio 2017, jQuery 3, ASP.NET Core and Xamarin. Other improvements are designed to make it faster for desktop development, such as enhanced document processing libraries and data components across all desktop suites.
Progress has also announced a release candidate of Progress Kendo UI for Angular, a suite of Angular 2 UI components for building native Angular web applications. Each component has been engineered natively for Angular 2, with each feature aligned to the framework guidelines and without any jQuery dependencies.
The release candidate has four new components that have been added to the UI widgets initially shipped in beta. The new additions are 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.
The Kendo UI for jQuery suite is another element that has been enhanced, with support and performance enhancements for jQuery 3, including Grid and Spreadsheet widget improvements.
Other improvements to the new version include features for new users,including new tag helpers in Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core, new project wizards and sample apps for Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC, and a new Xamarin project template wizard for Visual Studio for Mac.
There are four new components in Telerik UI for Xamarin - AutoComplete, Radial Gauge, ZipLibrary, and SpreadStreamProcessing. This is a new library for creating large spreadsheet documents and exporting them to XLSX and CSV file formats.
