    Arrow 2.0 Change Log (final)

    2.0 Change Log (final)


    EDIT: Updated Dec. 3 for final release.

    OK folks,

    Yes, we have been hard at work on 2.0 and, believe it or not, 2.0 docs. Here is your first official look at what's happening between 1.1 and 2.0, subject to change of course between now and final release. This list focuses mostly on API changes (not internal refactoring or bug fixes) and so should be pretty close to the change list for the first 2.0 alpha release when it comes out.

    Please note that the 2.0 Overview and 1.x to 2.0 Migration Guide are in progress, but are not yet available and are now available . This change log is meant right now merely as a rough guide to what is changing so that those planning on using 2.0 soon can start determining the impact to any existing code.

    -Brian

    I believe I just read yesterday (although I can no longer find the post) that they plan on supporting the last 2 major production versions simultaneously. So Ext 1.x would be supported until Ext 3.x was released.

    Cheers,
    JC

    Out of curiosity, why are you dropping the Vista Theme?

    Themes require a lot of maintenance from release to release, so we decided to simplify the core down to 2 (the "original" Ext theme is also gone, replaced by aero as the default). Our plans are to introduce an official community themes site soon, and anyone who would like to port Vista and add 2.0 support for it would be welcome to do so.

    any change for a helper tool for themes like the build-ext-yourself tool for customized ext-all.js builds ?

    I assume you mean something to build a custom ext-all.css file? Nothing is planned as there's not much return on effort for that since the CSS for everything is already pretty small.
