The Syncfusion roadmap for Essential Studio 2018 Volume 1 is now available! You can get a complete preview of what we’re working on for this new release, broken down by individual platform.
Syncfusion’s world-class Xamarin support grows more expansive in this release. Essential Studio for Xamarin.Forms gets a new tab control and a new pop-up control with built-in and customizable layouts, opening new avenues for app development. Existing controls get new features, such as the ever-useful pull-to-refresh feature for the data grid control and gradient support for the circular gauge control. Essential Studio for Xamarin.Android gets new additions as well, such as localization support for the image editor control, annotation support for the PDF viewer, and a new progress bar control. Not to be outdone, Essential Studio for Xamarin.iOS receives new features for the chart control, a new tab control, and updates for the image editor control, including serialization, localization, and cropping with aspect ratio.
Syncfusion’s enterprise solutions receive significant updates as well. The Big Data Platform, our revolutionary Hadoop distribution for Windows, Linux, and Azure, will support the data warehouse model thanks to the integration of Apache Phoenix on top of an HBase cluster and will receive a number of features to improve Linux environment support. The Data Integration Platform will benefit from a new database lookup transformation interface and a variety of security improvements. And Syncfusion’s popular Dashboard Platform will receive a new theme designer, Amazon AWS deployment support, and TV mode.
