Vendor Adds Blazor, .NET Core 3.0 Third-Party Tooling

With the recent release of .NET Core 3.0 and the continued interest in the red-hot Blazor project for doing Web development with C#, third-party vendors are cranking out related tooling.

The latest case in point comes from Progress, which just issued a new release of its Progress Telerik tool for .NET developers.

With the inevitable lag behind the Microsoft release cycle, the new release supports the production-ready .NET Core Release Candidate -- shipped Sept. 16 -- while NET Core 3.0 GA shipped Sept. 23. Microsoft said the functionality in the RC is basically what you get with the general availability release, though. [Note: After this article was published Progress said its release was updated to support .NET Core 3.0 GA on the day it shipped.]

Along with supporting .NET Core 3.0, Progress yesterday said its new release beefs up the Progress Telerik UI for Blazor tool with new native UI components, now numbering more than 25, ranging from Grid to Styling.

Other new components and accessibility improvements are provided for ASP.NET Core and ASP.NET MVC, ranging from TimeLine to a PDF Viewer, while ASP.NET AJAX improvements boost accessibility and include a Drawer component and enhanced Spreadsheet.

Other .NET tooling targets also received new features and functionality, including mobile (Xamarin), desktop (WPF and WinForms) and reporting, testing and productivity.

The company published a "what's new" resource for the R3 2019 release here.
