Leading this update is the official release of Essential JS
TypeScript to be lightweight, responsive, modular, and touch friendly, it is
than 35 controls, including ever-popular grid and charts, as well as new
schedule, map, and date-time picker components.

Coordinating with the release of Essential JS 2 are our
toolkits for Angular and React. Both are built on Essential JS 2 to provide the
light weight and great performance developers expect from these libraries, and
provide more than 35 components for building stunning web apps. New ASP.NET
Core and ASP.NET MVC components built on Essential JS 2 have also been released
On the mobile side of things, all our Xamarin suites offer
five new controls: a pop-up, data form, masked text box, tab view, and progress
bar. These additions will help you capture information you need from your
users, and give you the visualization tools you need to communicate information
to them. In addition, the autocomplete control for Xamarin now supports
multiselection, and the PDF viewer supports ink annotations. For UWP, we’ve
added a new spline range area chart type, swim lanes for the kanban control,
and customization to the toolbars in the image editor.

For the desktop, we’ve released a blazing fast, next-gen
data grid control for Windows Forms. Yes, we know our previous WF data grid was
one of the fastest on the market, but we can explain. This new one provides new
benefits like even better performance,
touch friendliness, and a lightweight structure. Even though it’s brand new, it
provides a depth of features usually found only in a very mature, long-supported
product: grouping, filtering, summaries, and Excel exporting just to name a
few. In addition to the new data grid, we’ve also released eight new Windows
Forms controls, including a button, form, tooltip, date-time editor, Smith
chart, and more. For WPF, we’ve added new features like a spline area range
chart type for the chart control, details view template support for the data
grid, and swim lanes for the kanban control.
