It’s my pleasure to announce the release of Sencha Ext JS 5.1.1. Although this is a minor release, some notable new features and several bug fixes will enhance your Ext JS 5.1 applications and improve your development experience. We’d like to thank our customers and the Sencha community members, who have been patiently waiting for Ext JS 5.1.1.
The following new features were added to Ext JS 5.1.1:
- A ‘LazyItems’ plugin defers the instantiation and initialization of unrendered item child components
- Grid cell editors now support Ext.Widget classes as editors
- Axis and series in charts support named listeners
- Border layout splitters support keyboard interaction for accessibility
- XML Reader uses a ‘keepRawData’ config to discard its ‘rawData’, avoiding memory leaks that may be caused in IE by holding XML documents
Sencha Ext JS 5.1.1 comes with more than 300 bug fixes, primarily around grids, forms, data, charts, and the core package. Please refer to the release notes for a complete list of fixes in Ext JS 5.1.1. You can also refer to http://docs.sencha.com/ for the latest guides and API documents.

I executed “sencha upgrade” and the Windows Defender found Trojan:Win32/Repjexi – Can anyone confirm that?
Ryan Smith says
I don’t see this during an upgrade in Win7 with Defender version 6.1.7600.16385(latest). I have default settings enabled which includes “Real-Time Protection” and the advance option to “Use heuristics”.
Can you please check to see if you virus definitions are up to date with Defender and let us know more information about your system configuration or how you got this message?
Don Griffin says
This check is described by Microsoft:
“We have removed or quarantined this file on your PC because it’s making changes and doing things that malware often does.”
This is most likely because sencha upgrade does download a zip from our CDN, extract it and then run the installer inside.
Try the direct downloads instead.
Rafael Carvalho says
Thats what I did after the warning. It wasn´t the first time that the Windows defender made a false alarm, but its better safe then sorry, right? :)

Finally! Thanks sencha!
Hello, I open https://staging.sencha.com/legal/GPL/, select “Sencha Ext JS”, input my email, check the Checkbox, and click the download SDK button. I only get”THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST” but no download happen.
please help, thanks
Never mind, I got an Email which has the download link.
The new release looks quite nice :) Thank you, Sencha.
PS: any idea when you are going to release new JetBrains IDE plugin version? The old one is constantly spitting null reference exceptions and showing hundreds of misleading “require missing” warnings…
Marvin Horst says
The new features to the border layout splitter are nice, but something went awry on the theming for the splitter in Neptune and Crisp. The splitter and “handle” are barely visible.
Sebastien Tardif says
I cannot find the 5.1.1 examples online.
No online examples, lots of not fixed bugs…
And also no fiddle…

Any clue by when can we expect SA to support ExtJS 5.1.1?
So it was really a miracle for me.
