With this release, Progress also expands its industry-first suite of native components for Microsoft Blazor, Progress® Telerik® UI for Blazor, providing developers with all the tools necessary to build beautiful, high-quality native web applications in .NET, using C# instead of JavaScript.

In addition, Telerik UI for Blazor now includes new Grid features such as row virtualization, column reordering and resizing, scrolling and batch editing, and new components including Scheduler, ComboBox and Autocomplete. The release also brings to market new globalization and localization capabilities as well as full support for .NET Core 3.1.
