Progress Telerik Continues Leadership in Blazor Components and .NET Support with Latest Release


.NET leader brings to market 50+ Blazor-native components, zero-day support for latest .NET 5 Preview, plus support for Angular 10, Vue 3.0 and more

BEDFORD, Mass., Sept. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Progress (NASDAQ: PRGS), the leading provider of application development and digital experience technologies, today announced the R3 2020 release of its leading lineup of developer tools including Progress® Telerik® and Progress® Kendo UI®. With this release, Progress now offers more than 50 native components for Progress® Telerik® UI for Blazor – including the most anticipated Grid features – as well as Blazor integration across its entire toolset. In addition, Progress is the first to deliver support for Microsoft’s latest preview of .NET 5.

Progress Telerik UI for Blazor
As the first set of native development tools available to support Microsoft Blazor, Progress Telerik UI for Blazor dramatically decreases the amount of time and effort required for developers to get new apps up and running with Blazor. With today’s release, Telerik UI for Blazor is now equipped with more than 50 production-ready native components for building more sophisticated, modern and feature rich web applications. Made up of the most popular components across the Telerik portfolio, they include Editor, Tile Layout, Tree List, Loader, Context Menu, Switch, Button Group, Toggle Button, and three Charts for the financial services industry (Stock, Candlestick, OHLC).

Telerik UI for Blazor also includes numerous new Grid features such as Column Menu, Custom Filtering, Multi-column Sorting, Search Box, Footer Template for Aggregates, exposed multiple new events for Expand/Collapse, ContextMenu, grouping in OnRead, expanded Grid binding options with support for DataTable and dynamic ExpandoObject, and more. In addition, Progress enables Blazor integration across its Telerik toolset – Telerik® JustMock, Telerik® Test Studio® Dev Edition, Telerik® Reporting and Telerik® UI for Xamarin.

“Blazor is an incredibly exciting technology for .NET developers, and with this release we offer the most powerful suite of capabilities for building Blazor apps,” said Loren Jarrett, GM, Developer Tools, Progress. “It is our mission to always enable our .NET and JavaScript developers to take advantage of the latest innovations in web, desktop and mobile development, and Telerik and Kendo UI R3 2020 does just that.”

Support for Latest .NET 5 Preview
Progress has a long-standing tradition of ensuring its Telerik development tools are able to provide zero-day support for any and all new .NET advancements.

Microsoft plans to release .NET 5 in November 2020.
