News about subscriptions

January 15th, 2018|News|

In a recent evaluation of our product lineup, we’ve noticed that most clients require some degree of technical assistance. As we are very concerned by our clients’ success, we have concluded that no product should be offered without support, bug fixes and updates. As such, Xceed will no longer be sold as a standalone product without a support and update subscription (previously known as the current version only license). We believe that this is how users will get the most benefit from Xceed and ensure that they are running the optimal version of the software.

The good news is that, for a few extra dollars, you can get free and total access to our Tech Support with bug fixes and unlimited uprgrades/enhancements during the course of your subscription. All products are now available as standard and Blueprint subscriptions for one or more years.

For small businesses and individual developers, we now offer a Small Business Subscription giving those who qualify a 45% discount on all components ordered (if your business revenues are less than US$1,000,000 and have 1 to 3 developers, you do qualify for our new plan). See Xceed Software License Agreement for more details.

June 2017 – Xceed releases component and library updates

Updated:

product_net_words_vertical  product_wpf_datagrid_vertical  product_wpf_toolkit_plus_vertical      product_net_ftp_vertical

product_net_sftp_vertical  product_net_sftp_xamarin_vertical  product_net_zip_vertical  product_net_realtime_zip_vertical  product_net_realtime_zip_xamarin_vertical

In this release we have focused on bug fixes, API enhancements, and performance improvements.

Xceed DataGrid for WPF has been updated to v6.3. The datagrid’s UI responsiveness has been greatly improved when performing lengthy operations. A total of 25 new capabilities and bug fixes for this release. [Release notes]

Xceed Toolkit Plus for WPF has been updated to v3.4. This update provides 52 improvements and bug fixes to 14 of the toolkit’s controls. New features include NavigatorWindow ability to select all item types in AvalonDock, CheckComboBox and CheckListBox ‘select/unselect all’ capability, and CollectionControl ‘duplicate’ option for copying collectionItems. [Release notes]

Xceed Docking Windows for WinForms has been updated to v2.3. When using the control in a multi-threading scenario, a null reference exception will no longer be thrown. [Release notes]

Xceed Grid for WinForms has been updated to v4.2. The grid control is now visible when dropping it onto the Visual Studio designer. [Release Notes]

Xceed Zip for .NET and Xceed Zip for Xamarin have both been updated to v6.3, receiving bug fixes and performance improvements for handling Zip archives containing a large number of items. Memory fragmentation occurring in the .NET/Xamarin large object heap is reduced thanks to the use of alternative data structures that don’t allocate large objects. This not only benefits applications that zip and unzip archives containing more than 100000 items, but also applications that run for a long time, including ASP.NET applications. Future releases will further reduce the use of .NET’s large object heap, as well as the time it takes to process existing Zip archives containing a large number of items. [Release Notes]

Xceed Words for .NET has been updated to v1.2 with 13 improvements and bug fixes, including support for tab stops, shading for text and paragraphs, and hyperlinks to bookmarks. [Release Notes]

Xceed SFTP for .NET and Xceed SFTP for Xamarin have been updated to v6.3 with support for diffie-hellman key exchange. [Release Notes]

Xceed Real-Time Zip for .NET and Xceed Real-Time Zip for Xamarin receive bug fixes. [Release Notes]

Xceed FTP for .NET and Xceed FTP for Xamarin have been updated to v6.3 for version synchronization with the other libraries. There are no changes to the FTP code, but the improvements to the Zip libraries also apply here.

We hope you love these new updates and components!

Xceed 2016 v3 launched July 13, 2016

WPF controls

Let’s start with our most popular control, Xceed DataGrid for WPF.

Xceed DataGrid for WPF moves to version 6.0, receiving a fresh new look thanks to the addition of a meticulously crafted Windows 10 theme. This theme is all about giving the datagrid a professional look and feel that blends perfectly with the Windows 10 design language. Here’s a screenshot of what to expect:

datagrid-q3-release

You’ll notice this theme exudes a leaner and cleaner look that’s unquestionably up-to-date with the very latest Windows 10 mindset. With this theme, the aim was not originality, but rather to make sure that your WPF applications clearly look like hot off the press Windows 10 apps, not tired and aging.

We know, however, that the datagrid is not the only control in your app’s user interface, which brings us to another pertinent product update: Xceed Pro Themes for WPF version 3.0.

In this milestone update, we’ve went ahead and themed every single Microsoft WPF control with the same blend of Windows 10 design language and visual cues that we used for Xceed DataGrid for WPF’s Windows 10 theme. Microsoft decided to not upgrade the look of the controls in WPF for Windows 10, but Xceed has your back. With our clean and professional Windows 10 theme applied to your entire WPF user interface, your users will definitely notice your app looks modern and high quality.

Last, but not least, Xceed Toolkit Plus for WPF moves to version 3.1, with all 59 of its WPF controls also receiving the Windows 10 styling treatment. You can also expect more than 50 improvements and bug fixes to this well-maintained Xceed product. We are working hard to make WPF developer’s lives easier.

.NET libraries

Our .NET libraries have also received a considerable update for 2016 v3. First, we updated Xceed FTP for .NET with TLS 1.2. TLS 1.2 is now the established standard when using FTPS (FTP over SSL), therefore, you won’t have to worry about being able to connect with the latest version FTP servers. We’ve also made the public API easier to use than ever for specifying encryption methods and parameters.

Xceed Zip for .NET also received a major update. The Deflate and Delfate 64 compression algorithms have been updated to offer the option to compress multiple items at the same time by using threads. This increases performance in some scenarios, for example when the .NET framework is able to take advantage of a computer’s multi-core CPU or multiple CPUs. We also have other tricks up our sleeves that we are integrating into future versions of Xceed Zip for .NET to ensure your Xceed Zip-powered applications function well with the still-evolving Zip format.

Make sure to give this release a shot, it is definitely worth checking out!
