As the first set of native

Telerik UI for Blazor dramatically decreases the amount of time and
effort required for developers to get new apps up and running with
Blazor. With today’s release, Telerik UI for Blazor is now equipped with
more than 50 production-ready native components for building more
sophisticated, modern and feature rich web applications. Made up of the
most popular components across the Telerik portfolio, they include
Editor, Tile Layout, Tree List, Loader, Context Menu, Switch, Button
Group, Toggle Button, and three Charts for the financial services
industry (Stock, Candlestick, OHLC).

zero-day support for any and all new .NET advancements. Today, Progress
continues this tradition by announcing that Telerik® UI for ASP.NET
Core, Telerik® UI for WPF and Telerik® UI for WinForms development tools
ship support for the latest preview of .NET 5, a merger of .NET
Framework and .NET Core that is intended to unify the .NET platform.
Microsoft plans to release .NET 5 in November 2020.
