Progress today announced the Q2 release of Telerik DevCraft suite, the most complete end-to-end toolset for professional .NET developers. With the latest release, Telerik, a Progress Company, continues to push forward innovations to improve the speed, productivity and agility of its 1.7M strong developer community, offering a major competitive edge to those who want to maximize the reach of their applications.

Full details about today’s news are available during the following sessions:

New in Telerik DevCraft Q2 2015:

Mobile Optimized UI for Telerik Web Controls: Recognizing the need for developers to build apps tailored for any screen size quickly, Progress has added more responsive features to its Telerik family of web controls, including the wildly popular Kendo UI HTML5 and JavaScript framework. Highlights include mobile-optimized UI for the Editor, TreeList, Data Pager and Image Gallery controls in UI for ASP.NET AJAX and Editor, Chart and TabStrip controls for UI for ASP.NET MVC and Kendo UI.

In addition, the Telerik Kendo UI product now comes equipped with a new modern mobile theme, Nova, bringing a fresh and elegant look to apps built with the Kendo UI mobile widgets for all mobile OS platforms.

Build Native Mobile Apps: With the new addition to UI for Xamarin, developers can implement the ListView for Xamarin.Forms, which is often the backbone of a mobile app, in their iOS and Android apps from a single, shared C# codebase. Developers preferring the native approach to building mobile apps can take advantage of the new DataForm control for UI for iOS and UI for Android.

The Desktop UI Suites: A variety of new business and enterprise capabilities enable desktop developers to create line of business apps faster. A new predefined Visual Studio template enables developers to create a scheduler app in just a few clicks, and document processing improvements for existing controls in both UI for WPF and UI for WinForms provide more export options to PDF, Word and Excel files. Additionally, new desktop UI controls include a Desktop Alert and Wizard for WPF and a Popup Editor, ToggleSwitch and Layout control for WinForms.

Support for MVC 6: Progress continues to work on leveraging MVC 6 functionality in the Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC, as well as Telerik Kendo UI, products and is committed to deliver official support when Microsoft announces the RTM version of the framework.

“We have always been a first stop for .NET developers because we’re known for providing the most up-to-date tools to build modern and future-proof business applications,” said Aaron Mahimainathan, Senior Vice President, DevTools and Telerik Platform, Progress. “With the Q2 2015 release, we’re continuing our tradition of cutting edge innovation by bringing together the core elements necessary for mobile success – responsiveness, optimized controls and more. We believe this helps to streamline and accelerate the development process and provide value-add to our customers.”

The Q2 release is currently available.
