  • Important Changes to Licensing - Starting with 2020 v2, ComponentOne is issuing a new serial key and licensing system. If you have an active subscription, then there's nothing you'll need to do right away. When you renew or activate a new machine, you'll want to check out how to use the new GrapeCity License Manager. Along with the new licensing system, developers building Microsoft .NET Core, MVC Core, Blazor, Xamarin, and UWP apps no longer need to use the runtime app keys. GrapeCity have improved the licensing to validate within the NuGet build scripts so once your machine is activated - you are good to go when building your app. No more runtime app keys and no more licenses.licx files.
  • Microsoft .NET 5 WinForms Controls (CTP) - Get a look at the first .NET 5 WinForms controls implemented just in time for .NET 5 Preview 6. These controls are built upon .NET 5 and take advantage of new features without compromising on backward compatibility or performance. In the initial WinForms CTP, GrapeCity are releasing FlexGrid, FlexChart, Ribbon, Sparkline, SuperTooltip, C1Icon, ExpressionEditor, RulesManager, and themes.
  • Microsoft .NET 5 Support for WinForms - The .NET 5 CTP includes new versions of the most popular WinForms controls built on .NET 5 for optimal performance and features.
  • Microsoft .NET Core 3.1 Support - 2020 v2 now supports .NET Core 3.1.
  • Conditional Formatting Rules Manager for WinForms - RulesManager is a UI library that can be attached to any data-aware control such as FlexGrid, DataGridView, or FlexChart to enable users to add and manage conditional formatting at runtime. Similar to Microsoft Excel, the control supports, colors, data bars, gradients for formatting cells based on rules. The control has easy to use API which developers can use to add conditional formatting through code.
  • New C1ControlPanel Install UX - In this release, you'll also notice a new user experience when installing or updating any ComponentOne product. Inspired by the Microsoft Visual Studio Updater, the panel on the right of the installer gives you detailed information about what will be performed. You can install and update a version of the product and select which Microsoft .NET Framework version, samples, and see what common tools are getting installed, as the new GrapeCity License Manager.
