    Thanks for the detailed replies today Mitchell. Fingers crossed that 5.x will be sorted from the get-go and the framework we have been waiting years for.

    What is the criteria being used to determine who gets into the private Beta program and how do I get my organization onto that list.

    The way the market is going, all web developers will need to build touch-enabled web apps. It may seem contrary coming from someone who's still on 3.x because 4.x was too slow and unstable, but at this point I think they indeed need to focus on bringing touch into ExtJS instead of doing more perf and stability work.

    Ext 5 will support tablet devices.

    Will release 5.x add support for deferreds and promises?

    So many other libraries support this style of programming. Will we see it in Ext JS?

    I have not seen it go in yet but work is still being done to merge the frameworks and Touch 2.3 has promises (as does Space) so it's not a solid "no it won't be in there".

    fwiw Fiddle is using it also

    FWIW, the Deft JS extension has an excellent Promise API that is Promises/A compliant and passes the entire Promises/A test spec. https://github.com/deftjs/DeftJS/wiki/Promises%20API

    Lots of organisations are using XP and IE6/IE7

    Windows XP is end of life April 2014
    IE 6 will be supported until July 2015 (ie 6 shipped with Windows Server 2003)
    IE 7 will be supported until April 2017 (ie 7 shipped with Windows Vista)

    However.. I agree that EXTJS 5 should not support IE 6 and for that matter it should not support IE 7 anymore. Browsers are much more transient than Operating Systems and organisations that use IE 6/7 could upgrade, should they choose to. Even large banks and government departments, which historically are very very slow to move will almost certainly have dropped IE 6 by April 2014.
