Introducing Avalonia XPF Trials and the Startup License

Announcing Avalonia XPF Trials and new licenses!

Nikita Tsukanov

At Avalonia, we embarked on the ambition project of Avalonia XPF with the aim of extending the reach of Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) to a broader range of platforms. Today, as we witness numerous companies finding success with Avalonia XPF, we are proud of the progress we’ve made. The fruits of our labor are visible, and we’re thrilled to announce that we’re being XPF Trials and added a license specifically targeting small businesses.

Avalonia XPF Trials

After rigorous testing and refinement over many months with a select group of companies, we are now ready to extend Avalonia XPF trials to the broader community. Avalonia XPF has seen exponential improvements since the start of the year. We are now proudly supporting a significant proportion of major WPF control vendors. Collaborations with esteemed vendors like Actipro and SciChart are enabling us to ensure that controls function seamlessly across all supported platforms.

This exciting expansion of our testing phase is organized into four straightforward steps to ensure a seamless onboarding experience.

Step 1:
Users interested in exploring the potential of Avalonia XPF can apply for a trial through our website.

Step 2:
Our team will set up a short initial call to verify the compatibility of the user's app, discuss timelines, and understand specific requirements. This step allows us to personalize your trial experience.

Step 3:
Once we've established the app’s suitability and your readiness, we help set you up with the Avalonia XPF trial. Our dedicated team is on standby to assist should any issues arise while using Avalonia XPF.

Step 4:
After a successful trial, users can purchase a license to officially bring their WPF application to macOS and Linux, opening up their products to a significantly wider user base.

Startup License

The launch of Avalonia XPF trials signifies a new phase in our journey. But we're not stopping there. We've always aimed to make Avalonia's robust solutions accessible to a diverse range of developers and businesses, which is why we are thrilled to introduce the new Startup license.

Our initial vision for Avalonia XPF was to offer large enterprises a way to conserve valuable resources while extending their application's reach. We wanted to help companies save months, or even years, of work rewriting applications. To our delight, we found that the appeal of Avalonia XPF extended beyond large corporations. Many smaller companies have also expressed a keen interest in our technology. To accommodate these smaller companies and startups, we're offering an Startup license.

With significantly reduced costs, the Startup license is designed for companies with no more than five employees and annual revenues not exceeding 1 million USD. This license, while highly affordable, includes up to ten support tickets per year. We are confident that the Startup license will enable many more businesses to experience the transformative benefits of Avalonia XPF.

With Avalonia XPF and the introduction of the Startup license, we're not just expanding platforms and licensing options; we're expanding horizons, possibilities, and opportunities. We believe that with the right tools, developers and companies, regardless of their size, can build upon their existing WPF investments and increase their reach.

If you have a WPF application and are interested in exploring what Avalonia XPF can do for you, we would love to hear from you. Reach out to us, and let's embark on this exciting journey together.

To the future of WPF, we say: the future is here, the future is Avalonia XPF.
