I love Sencha Touch. I have been working with it for almost 2 years, since 1.0.
HOWEVER, I am damn tired of having my development environment being a mess after ANY upgrade. ANY! BUG FIX POINT RELEASES, EVEN.
Do you guys care about this?
It has the effect of making me not want the fixes, for fear of having to deal with this.

Can you elaborate on any issues you're having?

I personally don't have issues with any of my apps with upgrading even with dot releases where lots may change. I think it's about how much you override or if you are doing things properly also.Mitchell Simoens @SenchaMitch

Sometimes I've run into issues - like the scrolling issue on PhoneGap on Android that the 2.2 release caused. But it was quickly fixed when 2.2.1 went out.

Sorry for my expressed frustration and slow followup. We had a malware infection in oursite in the meantime that got into my computer here too.
What I was frustrated with was upgrading cmd on the way to 2.2.1 from 2.2.0
Why replace the startup splash screens, overwrite the app.sccs and app.js files? the scss and app.js were fine, but you have to manually run around.
when the build blew up, so did I.

jattardi - that was the reason for the upgrade at this late stage in our project. Working now, scroller fixed, but I still don't understand why they replace the resources images like splash screen, icons.
upgrading to 2.2 from 2.1 was tricky... mostly because of the font replacement for iconMask, and I expected to work for that one. but a point release that wanders around my stuff during upgrade and places bird droppings in my source code just does not seem right.
