Charts development looks suspended
Hello ExtJS team,
First of all thank you for great Charts!
But, obviously, they can be improved. I have a feel that its development and bug fixing, well, is somehow distant from the focus. We reported many issues regarding Charts last 3-4 months, but almost all of them are still opened.
Could someone dispel my concern?

Charts are definitely still being worked on actively.
Can you point to any bug posts you're concerned with specifically?

It is nice to hear, thank you!
Here are two bug reports since January'2013 (but as I remember this stuff is not working well since ExtJS 4.0 and there were the bug reports).
Chart mask doesn't appear
Chart Navigation setZoom hides chart
The first issue is easy to get around. Just set up "enableMask: true". It seems to be easy to fix, but the bug is still opened.
The second issue is more severe and makes the zooming feature unusable.
There is a report since August'2012.
Chart legend: no way to see all legend items if there are many series
It makes a legend unusable with many series.
Positioning labels in a LineSeries doesn't work. The two bug reports since March'2012 and September'2012 (they seem duplicate each other).
Ext.chart.series.Line label position doesn't seem to work as intended
LineSeries label display option doesn't work well
Often there are issues with stylizing charts. For example, this issue since September'2012.
ColumnSeries style fill option appears to be not working
Some other old opened bug reports.
May'2012 Chart Axis majorTickSteps appears to be not consistent
November'2012 Radial axis doesn't show labels if Store is configured with memory proxy
December'2012 Chart Axis length and width doesn't work
January'2013 Radar chart doesn't work correctly with remote data
Not all the issues are critical. Some of them have workarounds (though it takes so much time to sort that stuff out and slows down development), but some of them are really critical and makes something just unusable.
In any way, the amount of issues and the speed of fixing (especially, the bugs which looks really easy to fix) makes me feel the Charts are a bit frozen.

Seems the Chart package is not going to be in ExtJS v5. Could you confirm this information?

This Sencha partner probably got an incomplete alpha code since a beta is not yet available.
I agree that the charting package could be improved, but removing it would be a bad idea.
