The new version of Syncfusion's ASP.NET suite is fully rendered on the client side to hopefully improve user interaction and performance. All the controls are said to have a "rich design time experience" (we think that means they're OK to use) and also allow data binding to server-side data sources.
"Previous versions of Essential Studio for ASP.NET, now referred to as ASP.NET Classic, will continue to be supported," said Daniel Jebaraj, vice president of Syncfusion.
The Volume 2 release also marks the beginning of Syncfusion support for universal Windows apps, enabling developers to more efficiently (says Syncfusion) create apps for the family of Windows devices and expand their customer base across Windows tablets, phones, and desktops. The initial set of more than 30 universal app controls from Syncfusion will include innovative charts, grids, and more.
