Announcing DotVVM 2.0.2

Published: 9/2/2018 12:14:12 PM

Yesterday, we have released a bug fix release of DotVVM 2.0.2. It addresses several issues reported by the community or discovered by us.

New Features And Improvements

  • Support for preloadable script resources
  • Support of Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection v2.0 (there were some breaking changes which caused runtime errors)
  • Route with empty path can be used in Route Groups
  • Introduces SuppressPostBackHandler which can disable commands based on a condition
  • Better support for Guids in value bindings (you can use Guid.Empty or ToString() method)

There were also several bug fixes, for example serialization in long numbers, an ability to disable LinkButton control, or proper display of error pages for static commands in debug mode. You can find more details on GitHub.

Bootstrap 4 Coming Soon

We have also added a few extensibility points in GridView control. We needed them in our new product - Bootstrap 4 for DotVVM. As the name suggests, it is a set of DotVVM controls that make using Bootstrap 4 easier and more fun. There are new controls, like Card or Range, and existing controls have been enhanced with new features. Unfortunately, there are some things removed, like GlyphIcons that are not part of Bootstrap any more. We plan to move them to DotVVM Contrib repo later this year so you can still use them.

Bootstrap 4 for DotVVM will be released very soon - September 2018. An what’s great – if you already purchased a license of Bootstrap for DotVVM, you’ll get the new library with support for Bootstrap 4 for free. The price has not changed, it is still $49 per developer and with 12 months of upgrades.

.NET Conf Partnership & Videos

DotVVM is one of the partners of .NET Conf 2018. We have recorded two short videos presenting features of DotVVM – they should be broadcasted during breaks between sessions. We will also participate at the Virtual Attendee Party and will be answering questions on DotVVM.

We have also finished our small recording studio and will be releasing new videos on our YouTube channel after .NET Conf.

DotVVM videos are coming soon
