Fall Release 2023
Xceed Products Fall Release 2023
Welcome to the Xceed Fall Release! This edition is packed with a big list of enhancements and features that we're thrilled to share with you.
Diving right in, our Words 3.0 release is a game-changer. Users can seamlessly insert HTML content directly into a Document. We've also paved the way for integrating text with HTML content, whether you're working within a Document, Container, or Paragraph. And for those looking to broaden their export options, we've introduced the capability to convert HTML to PDF. Merging Documents and replacing text has never been smoother, and to top it all off, we've rolled out 22 bug fixes and improvements to elevate your usability experience.
Moving on to Toolkit 4.6, it's all about blending design with efficiency. We're elated to introduce the FluentDesign theme, a design system from Microsoft that epitomizes intuitive, responsive, and visually appealing interfaces. This theme is versatile, fitting perfectly with all controls, whether you're in the mood for a dark or light mode, and is beautifully complemented by an accent color. To give you a taste of FluentDesign in action, we've enriched our LiveExplorer with new examples and screenshots. We've also added the IsAllItemsSelectedContentActive property to CheckComboBox, enhancing display options for our users. While we're saying goodbye to the NETCore version, rest assured that the NET Framework and NET5+ versions remain at the forefront of our priorities. And yes, this release is also accompanied by 11 improvements and bug fixes, ensuring you have a seamless experience.
Let's talk about DataGrid 7.2 Service Release. Our focus here has been on refining the user experience. We've tackled performance degradation issues head-on, especially those from version 7.1. The aesthetic appeal of some controls has been amplified, particularly when paired with the Material Design theme. And, of course, we've incorporated 4 key improvements and bug fixes.
We're also pushing the boundaries with the Toolkit for .NET MAUI Version 1.5. This update is a treasure trove of new controls. From the visually appealing and customizable Chart control to the intuitive ColorCanvas for seamless color selection, we've got you covered. The enhanced Switch, known as the Toggle Switch, offers a customizable appearance, while the Expander is your go-to for managing and displaying additional information. The TextBox has been revamped to offer advanced features, and the CheckBox now boasts tri-state functionality and custom symbols. For a deep dive into these controls, do check out our GitHub repository.
To sum it up, we're setting our sights on the future. With the release of .NET 8 on the horizon, scheduled for November 14, 2023, we're committed to ensuring Xceed is primed and ready to embrace the new advancements. Your trust is the wind beneath our wings, and we're eagerly looking forward to the journey ahead with you. A heartfelt thank you for your unwavering support.
