We’re excited to announce the release of Sencha GXT 3.1 beta, available on our download page and from Maven Central. This latest release of GXT introduces Theme Builder, a new tool for theming GXT applications, as well as the Neptune theme built entirely with this tool, adds support for GWT 2.6, and fixes a variety of bugs reported by our users. We’d like to gather feedback from our community while we prepare for the general availability of GXT 3.1.
In a previous article, we discussed the charting library as a whole. However, there is far more to the Sencha GXT 3 charting library than was covered in that introduction. This article discusses a number of the more intermediate and advanced features that you can use — including tweaking the data store backing your chart. With some simple changes to the basic chart setup, you can make your visualizations even more explanatory and expressive.
It has always been a challenge to draw objects in GWT because SVG and VML are not supported out of the box. In Ext GWT 3.0, we solve this problem by providing a draw framework that runs everywhere, from IE6 to the latest Chrome that is developed as a pure GWT library.
Today, we’re happy to announce an all-new Sencha Complete and a promotional price to sweeten the deal. The new Sencha Complete includes a commercial license to Sencha Touch Charts — our data visualization add-on to Sencha Touch — and the new Ext Designer 1.2 with support for Ext JS 4. And celebrate the expanded Sencha Complete, we’ve made the price even more attractive. Sencha Complete is now on sale through Sept. 30th with a starting price of $845.
Today we’re excited to announce the general availability of Sencha Touch Charts, an add-on to Sencha Touch. Touch Charts introduces a whole new way to interact with data on the mobile web, enabling users to touch, pan, pinch and explore data all within the browser.
