Recently the Heartbleed Bug, known more officially as CVE-2014-0160, was discovered and found to exploit vulnerabilities in 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 of OpenSSL. We wanted to update the community on the vulnerability (or, happily, mostly lack thereof) of various Sencha web services due to Heartbleed. After reviewing our web services and products, we’ve determined that they have not been vulnerable to Heartbleed, with one specific exception that only affects users of Sencha Space on a device running Android 4.1.1.
We recently released Ext JS 5 beta, and it has lots of new features. To help you prepare your application to take advantage of everything Ext JS 5 has to offer, we’ve created an upgrade checklist. Take a look, download the beta and share your feedback in the forum.
We will be at the Developer Week conference next week in San Francisco where we will be running a boot camp on Wednesday, February 19th from 9:00am–10:40am.

This year we wanted to make big improvements in the Sencha Forums. We started by adding post voting, JIRA integration and trends. Next up, we set out to make search better. Here’s what we’ve done to make search more useful for the community.
Extensions provide developers with valuable features beyond those that ship in Sencha’s frameworks, and are a very important part of the Sencha platform. At Sencha, we are investing to improve the ecosystem of extensions on our platform and I wanted to share an early look at our progress.
