Since we shared the Sencha product roadmap themes and survey, we received more than 700 survey responses with thousands of comments and feature requests. We will be sharing key survey results soon with the Sencha community. We received a large number of survey responses from the GXT community and we are delighted to communicate that we are in the final stages of releasing GXT 4.0.3.
GXT 4.0.3 will include the following improvements:
In GXT 4.0.3, grid rendering performance is improved by eliminating redundant rendering paths and you will see noticeable difference when rendering large grids.
There is improvement in programmatic layouts and layouts of VerticalLayoutContainer and HBoxLayoutContainer are much improved.
Resolution of customer issues
Selection models are improved so that they work consistently across all browsers. There are alignment improvements that make the checkbox with the grid look and work better. There are several bug fixes incorporated for Microsoft Edge touch and iPad touch.
GXT 4.0.3 brings more examples to help show how to configure and use the GXT API. We have provided examples to show use of font icons for tool buttons and web fonts.
With 100+ bug fixes, this release brings a solid set of improvements that the GXT community has been waiting for.
