This release includes the following performance enhancements:
We’ve also made virtual scrolling scenarios more user-friendly:
Our Data Grid now includes an integrated Filter Builder. The built-in Filter Builder gives you and your users more granular control over filter construction. The Filter Builder displays filter criteria as a tree structure, where nodes represent simple filter conditions.
v18.1 introduces an icon mode for the Data Grid and TreeList editing command columns.
The DevExtreme Tree List can now split data across pages. Our integrated pager allows end-users to navigate records page-by-page. End-users can also modify page size.

This release includes a new ’paletteExtensionMode’ option that allows you to extend a Chart control’s color palette. This option uses an algorithm that calculates extra colors. The following modes are available:
We have published our built-in localization API. You can now localize strings and apply supported formats to numbers, dates, and currencies without the use of any external localization library.
This release ships with the DevExtreme Scaffolder for Visual Studio. The DevExtreme Scaffolder can generate ASP.NET MVC/Core API Controllers with CRUD actions — actions that can be consumed by any client-side application (including web and native mobile apps). We’ve also integrated our DevExtreme ASP.NET server-side data library into API controllers, and enabled all key server-side features (sorting, filtering, grouping, etc.)
The DevExtreme Scaffolder can now generate Razor Views and Razor Pages with pre-configured DevExtreme ASP.NET MVC Controls bound to ASP.NET back-end API.
The following controls are available to scaffold:
You can also specify the CRUD operations available within the generated view.
The DevExtreme React Grid now supports a Tree View mode. In this mode, the grid can display hierarchical data (a tree-like data source, a plain list with a parent-id reference or any custom structure with manual transformation into a tree) and leverage built-in data management features (sorting, filtering, editing and record selection).
Our React Data Grid ships with a new Bands plugin. You can hide, display and reorder entire column sets instead of performing the same operation on each individual column.
This release ships with more than 65 new React components (based on our existing DevExtreme widgets). This includes Charts, DataGrid, Scheduler, PivotGrid, and many others. The feature set, functionality and appearance of these React components are the same as their DevExtreme counterparts.
Our DevExtreme Scheduler control can display appointment groups as rows within views with static titles.
v18.1 announces Bootstrap 4 support. All DevExtreme components can be used in applications with Bootstrap 4.
You can also import colors from Bootstrap 4 themes to DevExtreme themes.
