Announcing Infragistics Ultimate 19.2

Jason Beres [Infragistics] / Tuesday, November 19, 2019

With today's launch, we are very excited to get Ultimate 19.2 into your hands. Ultimate 19.2 builds on 3 key themes:

  • .NET Core 3 for Visual Studio 2019
  • Innovating on New Platforms for Modern Web
  • Best of Breed Angular UX

Let’s look at these areas in more detail.

.NET Core 3 for Visual Studio 2019

Infragistics Ultimate now includes full support for .NET Core 3 in WPF, Windows Forms and ASP.NET MVC (ASP.NET Core).  This allows Microsoft Visual Studio developers to leverage the most modern .NET capabilities for web, rich client, IoT, artificial intelligence & machine learning apps.  From a developer perspective, you’ll see immediate improvement in what you can achieve with a smaller, lighter-weight .NET Framework. With Infragistics Ultimate 19.2, you can modernize your web and desktop applications and gain better performance while working with the latest .NET Core CLI tools and SDK-style projects in Visual Studio.

Other advantages include the ability to code against the latest C# language features, take advantage of XAML islands, provide side-by-side deployments, and more.  For web developers, Infragistics Ignite UI for JavaScript fully supports the latest ASP.NET Core 3 release letting you build modern MVC applications taking advantage of all the new ASP.NET Core features. And with our support for Razor pages, you get the ease of use of both Visual Studio and Ignite UI for JavaScript to deliver the best modern experiences on the web.

All our .NET Core assemblies are shipped as Nuget packages, which gives you a really simple way to Infragistics-enable your application.

Innovating on New Platforms for Modern Web

Ignite UI is the best-of-breed choice for high-performance modern web development – and we are continuing this innovation with support for 2 bleeding-edge platforms:

  • Web Components
  • NET Blazor

As the web evolves, so does Ignite UI.  You can now take advantage of the most modern web platforms in your next app with the best grids, charts and more on the market.  Ignite UI is architected for high-speed rendering and optimized file size, delivering the fastest UX possible for your apps including rich theming and guidance you need to build modern web experiences in desktop and mobile browsers. 

If you’re not familiar with either of these two technologies, here is a quick summary:

  • Web Components provides encapsulation and the concept of reusable components and custom elements in a dependency-free approach to writing modern web applications. Web Components is not a library or a framework – it’s a web standard. Browsers handle Web Components as native custom elements. Libraries and frameworks come and go, but standards are implemented uniformly and are not subject to interpretations. New in 19.2, Ignite UI for Web Components offers the same rich component set that Infragistics ships in Ignite UI for React, like a high-performance data grid, over 50 chart types, Financial Charting, Excel Spreadsheet and Excel Library and more. 
  • NET Blazor is a new framework included in .NET Core 3 for building interactive client-side web UI. Ignite UI for Blazor Preview is a rich set of UI controls and components that brings the power of Ignite UI to Blazor developers, including both server-side rendering and WebAssembly on the client. We see WebAssembly as the future of the web, and with Ignite UI for Blazor you can get started with the productivity of Visual Studio and the power of Blazor for your future single-page applications (SPAs).

Both Ignite UI for Web Components and Ignite UI for Blazor ship with the same set of powerful controls we ship in Ignite UI for React:

  • Data Grid
  • Data Chart (50+ chart types)
  • Financial Charting
  • Doughnut Chart
  • Pie Chart
  • Sparkline
  • Bullet Graph
  • Linear Gauge
  • Radial Gauge
  • Geospatial Map
  • Excel Spreadsheet
  • Excel Library
  • Zoom Slider
  • … and more


Best of Breed Angular UX

We offer the most complete UI toolset on the market for Angular developers.  With everything from Data Grids, Business & Financial Charts to Spreadsheet & Excel Library, plus dozens of additional controls, Ignite UI for Angular helps you deliver complete solutions for the modern web, with the best tooling and the deepest feature set that your customers demand.  We are keeping the pedal to the metal with Ignite UI for Angular, shipping near-monthly releases, with more and more of the features that will help you deliver amazing experiences in your apps.
