Microsoft releases two .NET MAUI-compatible versions of Xamarin Community Toolkit

Microsoft released two new .NET MAUI-compatible versions of the toolkit ‘Xamarin.CommunityToolkit.MauiCompat’ and ‘Xamarin.CommunityToolkit.Markup.MauiCompat.’

These MauiCompat libraries align to the latest release of Xamarin.CommunityToolkit. The MauiCompat release includes support for iOS and Android.

“The MauiCompat libraries are created as a helpful step in your migration from Xamarin.Forms to .NET MAUI. These libraries ensure that you can access all of the features of Xamarin.CommunityToolkit in your .NET MAUI apps without breaking changes, helping to make your migration to .NET MAUI easier,” Brandon Minnick, a developer advocate at Microsoft wrote in a blog post. 

Amazon Managed Grafana now generally available

Amazon Managed Grafana has been upgraded to version 8 and it offers new data sources, visualizations, and features, including library panels that can be re-used on multiple dashboards. 

The new version also includes a Prometheus metrics browser to quickly find and query metrics and a new state timeline and status history visualizations. 

To centralize the querying of additional data sources within an Amazon Managed Grafana workspace, users can now query data using the JSON data source plugin

Additional details on the new version are available here.
