Xceed Summer Update! 2022

For this summer update, we have quite a few things to cover.  

First, all our popular products have received: features, updates, bug fixes and performance enhancements. We’re also already testing our products for .NET 7, which will be released this November 2022. We want to reassure our users that Xceed will fully support .NET 7. You can find out more about .NET 7 here: 

Xceed is also currently investigating the possibility of developing innovative products for new technologies such as MAUI and Blazor. Our nonvisual components such as Words for .NET, Xceed Zip for .NET are already working properly in these environments should you decide to use these technologies. We are currently working on samples for Blazor for you to get started! Feel free to provide any feedback you may have regarding these technologies.
