    When I'd asked in early September, the info I was given was that ExtJS 7.1 would be the GPL release, and it'd ship "before the end of the year".

    I'm hoping the nightmare of being totally stuck on ExtJS 5.1.1 (due to totally missing stuff/no replacements on 6.2.0) is finally over very soon.

    Being stuck on the same falling-apart version for nearly 5 years hasn't done good things. I hope Sencha will revisit their GPL support in the future, because going that long between usable framework releases is quite absurd for open source projects that want to survive.

    I'm aware, the problem is that 6.2.0 is known to lack many/most replacement functionality if you were depending on a legacy version (like 5.1.1). So it'd be having to replace nearly half (or more) the functionality. 6.5.0 through 6.7.0, for instance, did indeed include increasing replacements for these missing functions. So realistically, the only appropriate (GPL) versions needed would be 6.7 or 7.x due to the sheer volume of missing functionality. The app I'm maintaining is a desktop wrapped (Electron) app, so there are no ready replacements for any of the missing functionality, and reimplementing such a vast amount of dependent functionality would be equivalent to a full rewrite to remove ExtJS anyway. Given that the needed functionality is present in later versions, it's not really sensible to make such a large javascript rewrite, instead of waiting for the obligated Sencha GPL version, or rewriting in another language entirely. I haven't had time due to work and other commitments, as changing ~5000-7000 lines of code to reflect a lack of ExtJS updates isn't something that would take a single developer with obligations and a family to feed any reasonable amount of time or effort to complete totally on their own.

    Thanks for the thought, though, it was the first thing I'd considered about a year ago.

    We raised bug under reference number DOCS-628 to get this updated, thank you for bringing this to our notice.
    What is DOCS? Is this something to which paying customers have access?

    That is the jira project for the documentation software itself (not doc fixes, the software that produces the UI of the docs). Last I checked, jira was still not open and I'd have a hard time thinking that it would be opened.

    And sorry for saying that GPL was targeted for mid-October. I was given this time frame from them but have since not heard anything from them except that they are working on 7.1 which I assume is their sole priority now.

    Not that I know of, I would hope social media would be used to announce it but looks like I was duped into announcing a wrong date. I'm still unsure why it was missed and when it will actually happen now. Things like this is the major reason I've not had trust in Sencha now.
