New Sencha 2.2 : new features ?
Since Android is now the first mobile OS, I would like to know if :
1. the native android back button will be implemented
2. The native openurl (like in ios) will be implemented (for native packaging)
3. The LVL licence protection for Android, since google will let the other protection down.

It has more activations but stats that you get online aren't always 100% true or the most devices you will see using your app.
Will these features be in 2.2.0, not everything will. Do we want to support them, yes.Mitchell Simoens @SenchaMitch

If I may ask, I don't quite understand the plan for the next version of sencha...
Android was the first os in US (worldwide too) at the end of 2012, you have plenty of articles on the web about this fact.
Windows 8 could rapidly grow, but its performance in US market is underwhelming (ok in europe they maybe have 5 or 10 %)
If you look at some specific market (european countries) you see that Android is the most used os, and sometimes (like in France) by a large factor (Android 60 % , iOS : 25 %)
My question is : why don't you focusing your development on the top used OS, particularly on the top lack of features which are draining lot of questions on this forum (see 1 and 2 above)
I thought it would be logical, first fill the gap, then developing on other platform, then the world ...
But again I could miss some strategical points...

It's not that simple. It depends on what you mean by "first os". The stats are all over the place, in such a way that both Android and iOS are equally important. If you're developing a web-based app, iOS is the most important as web traffic is higher for iOS than Android. This is because a lot of Androids that are sold have no data plan, or the user is just getting a cheap phone and doesn't care that it has a web browser and never uses it.
Sales for Androids are higher, meaning there are more out there. But if people use them differently (and they do) then you have to pay attention to that.
Re: Android back button - it already works fine, I'm not sure why you're asking about that. Use URI schemes/routing in your app and the back button will work.

Back Button will work if you execute your Sencha app in a web browser, but it will not work in a native packaged app.
