This release introduces a new Office Navigation Bar control that is capable of integrating with our NavBar control to help you fully replicate the user experience that's part of Outlook 2013.
Sparklines are used to visualize data in a highly condensed manner allowing end-users to quickly consume and compare data. The DevExpress Sparkline Editor and Sparkline Lookup are designed for use in 2 use-case scenarios: standalone (in unbound or data-aware mode) and inside container controls, such as the Grid, Tree List, Pivot Grid, and Vertical Grid.
A new touch-friendly editor whose wheels can be swiped or scrolled to select the corresponding parts of a date-time value. The editor features smooth animation, mouse wheel and touch gesture support. Unbound, data-aware, standalone, and in-place versions of the Date-Time Wheel Picker are available.
We've also implemented an unbound Wheel Picker editor that allows selecting generic values using the same wheel-based UI metaphor. Features include:
This release ships with a new Activity Indicator Control - used to indicate the status of events with an unknown duration. With this fully customizable control, you can:

v15.2 ships with the following new features for the DevExpress VCL Rich Edit Control:
With v15.2, you can anchor group rows to the top of the Table View or Banded Table View so that scrolling through their content doesn't take them out of view. This is especially useful when groups contain a number of data rows. Anchored group rows display a special icon to indicate that their grouped data is partially visible.
This release includes a new style inspired by the Office 2016 Mobile Ribbon available for tablets. This style features only one row of buttons and does not include multi-level popup menus – only one popup is displayed on screen at any point in time. If a user activates a submenu, it will appear within the same popup container and the window will adjust its size to properly fit its contents. To help you get started with the new style, we've added IDE templates that allow you to create Office 2016 Tablet Ribbon style applications and Ribbon forms from scratch.
With this release, our toolbar items have been extended with a gallery item that provides advanced color selection capabilities.
With v15.2, you can export pivot grid data to Excel for further data analysis, using a simplified layout and without style information. The resulting worksheet includes outlined groups and frozen panes to make browsing the exported data simple. You can optionally highlight totals or hide field headers and/or cell borders in the worksheet.
With v15.2, groups can contain nested groups so you can create advanced hierarchical navigation menus.
This release includes a new skin-based Accordion View that provides smooth group expansion/collapse animation.
The Layout Control now provides the following layout options:
Creating a Ribbon or Toolbar UI for your Spreadsheet or Rich Edit control is now a breeze with a new design-time capability. Simply click the corresponding item in the control's context menu, select your preferences in the opened dialog, click OK and a few moments later a ready-to-use action-based UI has been added to your app.
This release ships with the following Office 2016 inspired themes: Office 2016 Colorful Theme and Office 2016 Dark Theme.
Our Date Editors now provide a touch-friendly drop-down calendar featuring the date-time wheel picker introduced in this release.
