Overlay Components — Native Scrolling
Our Popup, Popover, and Tooltip components now support native scrolling, which improves usability on mobile devices.

object to implement this functionality.
We extended the following accessibility-related capabilities:
Focus disabled UI elements
Switching focus between accessible and disabled (unavailable) UI elements in our components now complies with the WAI-ARIA standard. Screen readers can now report a disabled element when the user focuses on it. Any other interaction with disabled UI elements is not allowed.
Keyboard navigation in TreeView
We improved the tab navigation (Tab key) between item checkboxes and 'selectAll' checkbox.
Keyboard navigation in Calendar
Users can focus the Today button and press Enter to navigate to the today date. Enable the
setting to display the Today button within the calendar.

This enhancement allowed us to better support screen readers in all UI components.
Tabs and TabPanel — Design improvements in Material and Generic themes
We added new visual states for our Tabs and Tab Panel components. And yes, we also improved existing states: hover, active, disabled, focused, and selected.
Charts — Pattern and Image fill
With this new customization option, you can edit styles, apply images and SVG patterns to DevExpress Charts, making them accessibile to visually impaired people.
We also improved the documentation of our DataGrid, TreeList, and dropdown editors. The documentation now includes help topics about accessibility support. Each help topic includes a table with the features and standards supported by the component (for example, Autocomplete Accessibility). We use Lighthouse, WAVE, and Axe accessibility tools to test our components and display results in the table. Review this information to learn about accessibility support and to see if your application is configured to meet accessibility standards.
And yes, we will continue to enhance accessibility support in future releases.
Content Security Policy (CSP) Support
The DevExtreme UI library now supports Content Security Policy (CSP) integration and introduces advanced security features to help you detect and mitigate certain types of security risks, including Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) and data injection attacks. To make certain DevExtreme UI components support CSP, we run them through unit tests.
React component props now fully support types. TypeScript hints on errors in code, and IntelliSense to avoid them.
You can now import all required types from framework specific packages. In previous versions, you had to import certain types from a separate
package, while other types had to be imported from specific framework packages such as
Our documentation now includes over 500 topics related to types.
