The Maui open-source user interface framework and Maui Apps are out with a new release for those interested in this framework and applications that are designed to work well cross-device as well as largely working cross-platform too.

Maui 2 was announced on Sunday with a number of improvements to the framework itself as well as the Maui 2 Apps.

New to Maui 2 with the MauiKit Frameworks are new widgets, more polished graphical components, and refinements to enhance the experience of Maui apps across devices.
