Keep in mind that Ignite UI builds on a pile of new components and features we added throughout 2022 in:

Blazor Pivot Grid and Web Component Pivot Grid in Ignite UI 

The Blazor and Web Component Pivot Grid Component displays data in a pivot table that helps perform complex analysis on the supplied data set.

You can use the Pivot Grid Component to configure and display your data in a multi-dimensional pivot table structure. The rows and columns represent distinct data groups, and the data cell values represent aggregations. This allows complex data analysis based on a simple flat data set. The Pivot Grid Component is a feature-rich pivot table that provides easy configuration of the different dimensions and values as well as additional data operations on them like filtering and sorting. The Pivot Grid component is now available in:

 Ignite UI for Angular

 Ignite UI for Blazor

 Ignite UI for Web Components

  App Builder

Web Component ComboBox in Ignite UI for Web Components

The Web Components ComboBox is a lightweight editor that enables users to easily select, filter, and group different predefined options in a provided list. The component also supports options for {Platform} ComboBox Keyboard navigation, templates to customize how the items, header, and footer are displayed.

The Ignite UI for Web Components ComboBox component provides a list of options from which users can make a selection. It displays all options in a virtualized list of items, meaning the ComboBox can simultaneously show thousands of records, where one or more options can be selected. Additionally, the component features case-sensitive filtering, grouping, complex data binding and more. 

The ComboBox component is now available in:

 Ignite UI for Angular

Ignite UI for Blazor - scheduled for release Q1 2023

Web Component Stepper in Ignite UI for Web Components

The  Web Components Stepper Component provides a wizard-like workflow and is used for showing progress through numbered steps. It enables developers to divide a lengthy content into a sequence of logical steps, helping end-users more easily navigate the entire process. The Ignite UI for Web Components Stepper is displayed as a vertical or a horizontal line. The Web Components Stepper has multiple features like step validation, styling, orientation and keyboard navigation.

The Stepper component is now available in:
