.NET MAUI — Early Access Preview (v23.2)

Our next major release (v23.2) is a couple of months away. In this post, I'll describe new features we included in our Early Access Preview (EAP) build. See also full .NET MAUI — Year-End Roadmap (v23.2).

If you own an active Universal Subscription, feel free to install our .NET MAUI EAP packages at your convenience from NuGet. Make certain to check the “Include prerelease” option within NuGet Package Manager.

As always, we welcome your feedback. Should you encounter issues with the EAP or would like to share your EAP-related thoughts with us, simply create a new DevExpress Support Center ticket. We’ll be happy to follow up.


Early Access and CTP builds are provided solely for early testing purposes and are not ready for production use. This build can be installed side by side with other major versions of DevExpress products. Please backup your project and other important data before installing Early Access and CTP builds.

This EAP may not include all features/products we expect to ship in our v23.2 release cycle. As its name implies, the EAP offers an early preview of what we expect to ship in two months.

New .NET MAUI Circular Progress Bar and Gauge Control

To help visualize multiple progress lines on-screen, v23.2 will include a new Circular Progress Bar Control. You will be able to add custom content to the Circular Progress Bar Control and inform users about actual progress value/indicator purpose. You can visualize multiple ranges, add scales, tick marks and labels via a simple API:

<ContentPage ...
           <dxg:ArcScale MajorTickmarkCount="0" MinorTickmarkCount="0" ArcWidth="14"
           StartAngle="180" SweepAngle="360"  ShowStart="false" ShowEnd="false" 
           StartValue="0" EndValue="100">
                    <dxg:MarkerIndicator Value="30">
                            <LinearGradientBrush StartPoint="0,5" EndPoint="0,5">
                                <GradientStop Color="#D7BFFF" Offset="0.9" />
                                <GradientStop Color="#C9B2FF" Offset="0.1"/>
                    <RadialGradientBrush Center="0.5,0.5">
                        <GradientStop Color="#C8BED8" Offset="0.9"/>
                        <GradientStop Color="#E8DEF8" Offset="1"/>
                    <dxg:ArcScaleRange StartValue="0" EndValue="60" BrushWidth="14">
