    Default Ext4, when?

    Ext4, when?


    Hi,

    Starting to get pressured from my boss to get development properly up and running so thought I'd ask here.

    We about to start a new product, and want to use Ext 4, mainly so we can take advantage of the new MVC architecture, not having to come up with something ourselves, and provide as with a longer term shape going forward ... the problem is we cannot wait too long before we start putting stuff together in anger.

    I've been looking at the new MVC stuff in Sencha Touch a little, so can get a clearer picture of what's coming, although I suspect from a few comments I've seen there have been tweaks to it.
    • Any idea on when the first beta is going to land?
    • I notice that a few people on the forums must have access to Ext4 already, since are writing books about it. Is access available via SVN (i.e. support subscribers), or is this by some other arrangement?

    If necessary we'll grab our licenses now rather than when the rest of the team jump onboard...

    Appreciate any info people can give.

    Regards,
    Westy

    1. The first beta release is scheduled for end of December/beginning of January.

    2. Ext4 is on GitHub, but only a few alpha testers have access to it. I recommend waiting for the beta release, because the current alpha state is still too volatile.

    Ah ok, thanks for that... a little more accurate than the 'few weeks' estimate of two weeks ago at least

    Ah, that explains how some have access to it then, cheers.

    I doubt we'll be producing any production code yet, but would certainly love to see how it's shaping up... how does one get in the club, or would this likely be impossible?

    Thanks for the info.

    First release will be early January. Debating whether to call it beta or something else - preview release might be more accurate as beta implies feature freeze.

    Thanks for the update.

    Decided to go with 3.3 for now, will re-evaluate again when preview hits.

    Validations should be done at the Model layer in most cases. Will be the default in 4. Will still be easy to add to a form though, and defining new validations is easier than in 3
