    I don't understand why. New comers should start with Ext Js 3. It's rock solid and the doc is accurate with proper examples. The little code you will built will be easily upgradeable to 4 when it's finally release with proper documentation and all component finalized.

    It is most likely that I will end up doing some work with ExtJS 3, but ExtJS 4, even in it's beta state, is giving me a much better idea of where it is going.

    Especially when it comes to things like extending GridPanel in it's new form, trying to retro fit plugins and features like auto column widths and filters.

    At the moment, ExtJS is a learning exercise for me. I've been told it has a steep learning curve, but once you've got that down, it's smooth sailing. Given the choice, I'd rather hit that curve on how ExtJS will be looking going forward, rather than how it once looked. I hope Sencha make the migration process as smooth as possible, but the next best thing is not having to do a migration in the first place.

    Easily upgradeable with a compatibility layer, which is really a conversion crutch. If we're this close to a release of Ext 4, you're going to have to learn how it does things anyway. Why learn 3 now to have to unlearn it? I say all in for Ext 4!
