With many of our developers moving to Git for smaller internal projects, and with Ext JS 3.1.1 just released, we decided to take the opportunity to move development of Ext to Git.
HTML5 is coming. All of us at Ext are excited to embrace the new standard as it gains acceptance. This post will examine two notable HTML5 developments – Video and Canvas. The video tag allows for native video rendering, removing the current need for third-party plugins like Flash. Likewise, the canvas tag has a clean yet very powerful API allowing you to draw complex graphics at the pixel level.
We are very proud to announce the final release of Ext Core under the MIT license. Your feedback was invaluable. Thank you for all the bugs reported and test cases created. For those of you who are new to Ext Core, we suggest you read the previous blog post about the all the features and examples that we released as part of the beta.
With our recent change to the GPL v3 some concerns have been brought up by the Ext Community. We are hoping to address some of those concerns via community discussion of two new FLOSS exceptions. The first step for us is the Open Source License Exception for Extensions. It is currently in draft status and we are seeking input from the community before we have it finalized.
Today we’re very proud to release: PhiloGL, a WebGL Framework for advanced data visualization, creative coding and game development from Sencha Labs.
