A couple of months ago, we published Sencha’s roadmap. Since then, we’ve received great feedback from you—our customers—and are making some updates to the 2019/2020 roadmap to incorporate your suggestions.
As a Sencha Product Manager, I interact with customers on an everyday basis and get excited to see the myriad ways enterprises use our product. Your feedback plays a big role in driving the product direction.
Continued Investment in Classic & Modern Toolkits
We’ve heard your feedback and tuned our goals. I think you’ll get excited, but don’t stop here. For customers developing applications with Ext JS Classic toolkit, we have enhancements in the works planned for the coming releases. For anyone developing with Ext JS Modern toolkit, you won’t have to worry about upgrading to any new toolkit either. Ext JS Classic and Modern toolkits will be first class toolkits that will live long into the future. This means that we continue to invest in and provide feature and performance enhancements to both toolkits.
Sencha Modernization Mission
- With any of the upcoming releases, upgrade lifecycles will continue to be smooth and incremental.
- You can continue to use the Classic and Modern toolkits in your current and future projects—and build applications with the products you know and love.
- Our engineering teams are working on a transpiler transform process that will allow you to write Ext JS classes and components with ECMA Class syntax. This process will be transparent to the developer.
- Our popular Grid component will be enhanced with new features. Grid performance and quality improvement will continue to be our focus.
- There will be significant improvement in the overall ease of use, accessibility and quality of all the components in our toolkits.
Our goal is to continually listen to feedback and be transparent in our roadmap and plans. We are laser focussed on improving usability, performance and deliver quality products.
