If you are a customer with an active subscription, you should already have received an important email from us: that Universal v15.1 has been published to the Download Center and it’s ready for you to, well, download.

If you have been watching our community site here over the past couple of weeks, you will have realized that this is a release that is packed to the gills with new controls, new features, new improvements across the board, for all the .NET platforms we currently support. And of course we should not forget CodeRush and DevExtreme either. In essence, if your basis for development is Visual Studio, this release is almost overwhelming.

This whole week we have been also presenting live webinars on the new features, four down and two to go. Thank you to everyone who has attended the four so far – they’re on our YouTube channel if you want to watch them again or for the first time – and thank you if you’ll be there tomorrow and next Tuesday for the two remaining ones.

(Of course, if you’ve reached this point and are wondering about our VCL Subscription, rest assured we have not forgotten. Now that .NET is “out of the way”, we shall be talking about VCL starting next week. Stay tuned.)

UI Controls for Desktop, Web and Mobile: DevExpress v15.1

Normally at about this point in these announcement blog posts, I like to point out those features that have most impressed me about our new release. This time, I’m finding it most difficult indeed to limit the bullet list. For example, there’s:

  • The WPF report designer CTP and the new smooth document viewer
  • The pivot grid and scheduler in DevExtreme – like, wow!
  • The new Excel export engine (and the new Data Access engine, come to that)
  • High DPI support in WinForms and WPF – and, mirabile dictu, the RTL support in WinForms
  • Conditional formatting of data everywhere, it seems
  • The ASP.NET Runtime chart designer
  • The dramatic (as in order of magnitude) speed increase for the PDF document processor

And, so on, so forth. As I said, a really impressive release. The teams have really outdone themselves this time, so imagine how much more they’re going to have to do to impress us for v15.2 (cue the CTO evil laugh).

So, please do navigate over to the Download Center and grab the latest installer. You will not be disappointed. As always, if you do have some feedback for us, the support team are ready and waiting for your messages.
