Upcoming Version

New features announced here can usually be seen on our Demo Site well before the official release, usually within a few days of the announcement here.

For current and past releases, please see News.

We're working on the next version:

The theme for this new version is first page loading speed and much needed documentation has been added.
  • Incremental JavaScript/CSS loading - For most landing pages this increases Google's PageSpeed Insights score to the low 90s for mobile and almost 100 for desktop. If no Google Fonts are used, the score will be in the high 90s for mobile and 100 for desktop. Landing pages based on Bootstrap (or custom CSS) without forms benefit the most from this enhancement. Kendo UI and jQuery UI are not loaded until needed (even on landing pages with popups, which use both).
  • Automagic use of WEBP images, which are significantly smaller than png or jpg files. This is part of the build pipeline and images are served as image/webp if the browser supports the content type. This is fully automatic, when png or jpg files are used. (documentation)
  • Custom tooltip to remove the dependency on jQuery-UI (to avoid loading it on landing pages).
  • Tree component now supports external links.
  • IVR Package:
    • Add phone numbers that are notified via text message whenever a call is received. The message is sent before the caller selects an extension or leaves a voice mail.
    • Blocked phone numbers - Calls from blocked numbers are rejected.
  • Variables in Appsettings.json (variable substitution for string values in Appsettings.json).
  • Additional documentation:
The next version will be released in June, 2019. We're moving away from our previously monthly cycle to allow for beefier features and an extended test cycle.

Long Term Changes

  • Removal of jQuery is a long term goal. All templates and modules now use TypeScript without jQuery (however Kendo UI is jQuery based).
  • Remove use of bower - This continues to be used only by Telerik's Kendo UI.
  • Page load time/performance is always of high priority.
