Is there any activity wrt the Aurelia Kendo Bridge?

Nothing has happened on Gitter (adriatic/Aurelia-KendoUI) since this March (two questions posted). I ran into a problem today and I don’t understand why because the component I’m trying to use should be part of what was known as the KendoUI Core, but I get an exception saying that the component can’t be found:

Inner Error:
Message: The kendo control ‘kendoDropDownList’ is not available. Did you load Kendo (in addition to the bridge)?

I’ve got no problem using the autocomplete component, nor the combobox so I really don’t understand why the drop-down-list can’t be found.
