Progress today announced the latest release of Telerik DevCraft suite, the most complete .NET toolbox for web, mobile and desktop development. The new release introduces extended support for ASP.NET Core 1.0 (incl. MVC6) and .NET Core 1.0, as well as first-class features to help developers build modern and future-proof business apps faster.

According to the company’s annual .NET Developer Survey released in April 2016, “New advancements around cross-platform development and open source are making it an exciting time to be a .NET developer. Furthermore, 69 percent of web developers are highly anticipating and are excited about the changes coming in ASP.NET.”1

With Kendo UI, UI for ASP.NET MVC and UI for ASP.NET AJAX products, Telerik, a Progress company, has been long-recognized as offering the most advanced responsive web UI on the market. Moreover, the company is the only vendor to provide such functionality for all popular web platforms—HTML5/JavaScript, Web Forms, ASP.NET MVC, PHP and JSP.

Today’s release extends those capabilities with support for .NET Core 1.0, allowing developers to build cross-platform web apps running on Windows, Mac and Linux. In addition, Telerik web UI tools enable developers to quickly and easily produce mature and richer business web apps for the platform of their choice, including ASP.NET Core 1.0, using a plethora of new improvements. These include enhanced Editor and Spreadsheet controls for Kendo UI, Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC and Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX, advanced TagHelpers in Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC and more scaffolding options for the ASP.NET MVC TreeView.

“We have continued to deliver cutting-edge tooling to elevate, yet ease the development experience, by being among the few to support ASP.NET Core 1.0 (including MVC6) and .NET Core 1.0,” said Marina Hristova, Vice President, Product Marketing and Management, Telerik DevTools, Progress. “No matter what the app platform—mobile, web or desktop—our DevCraft offering provides the most innovative and complete toolbox for building amazing and solid business applications.”
