This announcement post contains the detailed list of updates in the 2020.1 version.  Please be aware that Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (version 1709) or later and usage of the Microsoft's free 'Win2D.uwp' NuGet package are required.

While the version includes a wide number of small updates and bug fixes, let’s take a look at a handful of the larger updates.  

Editors

AutoCompleteBox 

AutoCompleteBox now has a SelectedItemChanged event and an InputMode property, that alters input behavior.  Search mode is the default and is intended for usage when the control is providing search-like functionality, commonly seen in application title bars.  ComboBox mode is an alternate mode intended for use when the control should be used in more traditional ComboBox-like scenarios.  When in ComboBox mode, the popup list filter turns off when not typing in the control, allowing the entire list to be browsed when interacting with the control purely via the popup.

Swatch-Only Display

BrushEditBox and ColorEditBox now have a HasText property that allows you to hide the text portion of the edit box for a swatch-only display.

Dates and Times

DateEditBox and TimeEditBox now accept delimiter-less input for several additional custom formats.

Large Incremental Changes

Numeric edit boxes now support large incremental changes when holding Shift while pressing Up/Down or rotating the mouse wheel.

Custom Format Strings

Several numeric edit boxes now support custom format strings with semi-colon conditional format specifiers.

Grids

We've added a PropertyGrid.RequestRefresh method that can be called to tell the PropertyGrid to refresh its contents.

SyntaxEditor

Search Overlay Pane

A new background renders the search range when the search overlay pane is in Selection scope mode.

A new property allows you to disable key bindings that would activate the search overlay pane, which is useful if you have an external search UI.

Logic related the selection scope searching has been improved.

Ctrl+Enter can be pressed to execute a Find All search operation when the Find textbox has focus and the find all button is visible.

IntelliPrompt

New methods allow completion list items to be added much faster, dramatically improving performance.
