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 Version 2.7.1 / 2.8.0:

  • TBA

Additional items will be added as progress is made in their implementation.

The next version will be released in January, 2018. We try to maintain a monthly release cycle if possible but will skip a release due to the holidays.

Not Immediate, Phased In Over Next Few Versions

  • Bower (used just for Kendo UI Core) is being phased out.

Even Longer Term

  • Migrate to VS Code to remove dependency on Visual Studio 2015/2017.
  • netcoreapp support (there are however a few limiting factors from our non-open source use of YetaWF which need to be resolved first).
  • Investigation into replacing Kendo UI as it's too "heavy" and jQuery dependent.
  • Investigation into replacing jQuery UI as it's too "heavy" and jQuery dependent.
  • Use of jQuery Slim and eventually eliminating it altogether.
  • A transition away from jQuery to TypeScript with JSX is underway. As jQuery is an integral part of KendoUI, Bootstrap, jqGrid (and other plugins used by YetaWF), this is not a high priority, but new code will take advantage of these new features.
