DevExpress, a leading global software development company, announced today the next release in the DXv2 generation of software development tools, DXperience 12.1. The technology landscape is quickly changing. New platforms are emerging and more than ever we find great user experience and agile design at the center of the development conversation. Developers are looking to deliver next-generation user experiences to their users, on the desktop, on the Web or across a broad array of Touch-enabled mobile devices. DXperience 12.1 tools and components help developers take on these new challenges using their existing skills & the technologies available today. "It's critical to DevExpress that our tools provide a bridge from our customers' existing investments in ASP.NET to future platforms like iOS. We're committed to delivering that bridge to ensure developers have a smooth transition," said Julian Bucknall, Chief Technology Officer at DevExpress.
Right Platform. Right Design. Right Decision.
Beautiful design and rich user experiences are also moving to the center of the development conversation. Legacy applications now must run on an array of new mobile devices, like iPads, slates and mobile phones. Building applications designed for the device they'll run on requires more focus than ever on great design principles . The design time visualization, dynamic themes and new tools like the Cross-Platform Data Library in DXperience 12.1 by DevExpress help developers to realize their creative vision.
"With 12.1, we're going to start with a revolutionary new approach to building applications. We don't believe that developers want to be building applications from individual controls," said Dave Mendlen, Chief Marketing Officer. "As the computing industry gravitates to simpler and more polished applications, we want to help developers create these by starting at a much higher level of abstraction. Why should developers be forced to assemble the pieces together?"
Dazzling Design. Developer Delivered.
Touch-enabled application development requires developers to re-think the future of application design and user experiences. From a WinForms developer building client applications to a Web developer building for mobile platforms, DXperience 12.1 by DevExpress, helps to by leveraging the rich skillsets developers already have and the technologies available today. New docking panels in DXperience 12.1 and support for gestures across the entire suite of tools and will take Touch to the next level. New built-in themes, like the Metropolis Dark, help developers to create applications that are as elegant as they are efficient.
