This was unfortunantly not entirely true. I knew that some features from CT probably wouldn't be available in 6.5 MT, but I assumed ExtJs 7 would be available before we launched our reworked app. Last week, we made the decision to rewrite all our MT views back to CT, putting our relase date back another three months

    I'm not saying it's impossible to create great apps for desktop with MT, but for us it just wasn't mature enough.

    Very sorry to hear about this, we had all intentions of delivering on the promise of feature parity with modern toolkit in the near term but now that Idera is using other developers that are not familiar with the framework (or browser dev tools) it's up in the air when or if it will happen. They can promise all they want, I just don't see it happening any time soon unfortunately.

    What alternatives would you consider? Asking for a friend...

    if you were starting an app right now, I'd use React with ag-grid and react-forms (the rest depends on what you'd need for your app). Also, for state, I'm a fan of mobx over redux.

    Together with Seth Lemmons, we are preparing about 40 blogs to help people transition (concept/feature based) to React. We are about half done writing, getting some React expert tech reviews and then we'll start flooding the internet with these blogs.

    I knew the move to Modern Toolkit was a bold one, so I'm partly to blame myself. I still love working with ExtJs though, the stuff that works do work really well and I don't feel like I'm ready to give up on it just yet

    I got this email on Oct. 17 from an anonymous Sencha employee in response to my question. I'm not sure if he is still with Sencha (most likely he received another offer and left). I believe the email is accurate.

    I agree, Ext JS is still a great framework and will have a long shelf life (as long as Chrome doesn't break things again, Sencha Test seems broken in Chrome beta atm iirc). They just aren't satisfying my need for real details and action so far and what I've seen and heard, things are not going very well with the new devs so there is some transition pains going on and they sound very deep pains that will take a long time to correct.

    MobX is probably easier for the majority of use cases, but Redux has some advanced middleware such as e.g. the Redux Saga (for complex flow handling) which MobX doesn't provide.

    Thanks for the info about ag-grid and any other React info. Once you have the blogs ready, I want to read them

    I would personally recommend to try DevExtreme Angular + Angular 4 + ngrx.
