I'm looking for what you have in WPF as we migrate ourselves over to Blazor - https://www.telerik.com/products/wpf/conversational-ui.aspx
For the time being, you can consider using the Kendo Chat widget as described in this sample project.
The best way to get status updates is to click the Follow button. This will send you an email when something changes (e.g., we know the release it will be in).
Love the Telerik and Kendo UI products and believe more people should try them? Invite a fellow developer to become a Progress customer and each of you can get a $50 Amazon gift voucher.
