The following is not meant to argue with anyone as there are many use cases and what is true for one doesn't have to be for one's neighbour.
I am the first to about Ext's release strategy and lack of clarity regarding release dates. This being said, I love the way Ext is going and how it allows to write eminently re-usable and maintainable code, something that, in my use case, far outweighs having to wait. That is, provided a functional release ever sees the light in the next few months.

It's true @_matias_.
I'm unhappy with Ext ATM because they release a version with many problems: performance, bugs, etc. tut at the same time, I'm not using Ext 3.4 for my projects.
It's true that ATM I'm not supporting IE, is possible to me to restrict my users, temporally, to FF and Chrome, but, Ext 4 has so many nice features, that I can't switch back to a previous version...
What is sad is they late to many time from release to release. I don't understand why they release Ext4.1-PR1 full of bugs, but is not possible to release a PR2, which certainly will have less bugs. I know they like to jump straight to Beta, but...is a long wait, and people get mad during the process.Ext is terrific!!

Still checking just about every day to see if a pr2 or beta is available, or if maybe just a new message has been tossed over the wall. I am a veteran software developer and an enthusiastic user of the extjs framework. Like many others, my organization has staked a lot on extjs4. We've done a lot of development, and porting of existing projects, but they have now been on hold for way too long. When asked for progress estimates, the stakeholders expect something more than crickets. Please help me to defend the decision to take this road. A pr2 would take a lot of pressure off at this point. We know you are all working very hard on this, and are dedicated to a quality deliverable. Please keep us better informed of what to expect over the coming week(s), month(s) or if it might be longer than that, we just need to know.

There won't be a pr2, they'll switch to beta1 directly, and it should be ready before the end of this year, so be patient....Ext is terrific!!

The unfortunate truth is that Sencha is aiming their efforts in Sencha Touch and not ExtJS. All the tweetings, etc, is towards Sencha Touch.
It's incomprehensible that it takes so many months to iron out the bugs. It's also not possible that these performance problems couldn't be measured before releasing ExtJS 4.
There is something very wrong going on, and I'm really afraid that the latest stable version from Ext would be 3.4

We have had a full team working on Ext JS since we shipped Ext JS 4. We *just launched* Sencha Touch 2, so our marketing efforts have been concentrated on getting it into market. We've blogged along our way about Ext JS 4.1 and had a number of newsletter articles on what's going on. Ext JS 4.1 has a full rewrite of the layout system for improved performance - which is a core component that the entire framework has massive and subtle dependencies on. We're almost there.

For example, If I don't want ot support IE6, is there some compatibility I can remove somewhere that will speed up things ?
