What We Accomplished
In this quarter we released the 2013.1 versions of our WPF and Silverlight control sets. The 2013.1 versions add a new full-size Charts product that complements our existing Micro Charts product and allows you to create stunning charts for your apps. Numerous new SyntaxEditor enhancements were added such as indicators (breakpoints, bookmarks, etc.) and C#/VB text formatting. A new Metro Dark theme was added to WPF and can theme your entire app! Our Sample Browser apps that ship with the WPF and Silverlight controls have been completely redesigned from scratch with a modern UI appearance.
Our Code Writer Windows 8 app received numerous enhancements: a new theme, new file types, full touch interaction support, new advanced editing operations, modern icons for file associations, live tile badge notifications, and more. In the most recent update, the XML and XAML file types received some great updates like: code outlining, end tag auto-complete, quick info, smart indent, syntax error reporting, and text formatting.
What’s Coming Next
We are currently working on updates to the Charts product, and will be adding more features and chart types during this quarter. SyntaxEditor will continue to receive more new feature areas and enhancements.
In the WinRT/XAML space, we are continuing to port SyntaxEditor to this platform. We are currently deciding whether to postpone its 2013.1 release (which has the new completed Charts controls too) so that a beta of SyntaxEditor for WinRT/XAML can be included as well. If you are interested in beta testing SyntaxEditor for WinRT and haven't already contacted us, please write us.
