Please specify and quantify these statements re: the many very specific use cases that have been posted repeatedly in these forums. We need to see direct comparisons of the latest v4 vs v3.4.1 for specific scenarios to believe that considering the upgrade path makes business sense. These *must* include performance on IE.


For example:

http://www.sencha.com/forum/showthre...ues-under-IE-8

I've asked for Sencha quantification on performance for specific tests many times in these forums and have yet to see any. Would love to be surprised this time. It makes no sense for several developers to individually upgrade the test cases already provided to the latest v4 release only to find out that the performance is still slower than v3.

So nobody is currently working on v3 fixes... I appreciate the honest response.
