Sencha Appoints Art Landro as Chief Executive Officer

Sencha announced that Art Landro has joined the company as its new Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. Landro has two decades of senior executive experience with leading enterprise technology companies and will drive Sencha's mission to deliver an ideal platform for designing, developing and deploying applications on any device, platform or browser. Landro is taking over the Sencha helm from Michael Mullany, who will remain an active member of the Sencha board after four years of making the company's application frameworks and tools the global standard for HTML5 development. Prior to joining Sencha, Landro was the CEO of Netherlands-based Cordys, where he repositioned the company as a platform-as-a-service (PaaS), cloud-provisioning and cloud BPM solutions provider, which culminated in its acquisition by OpenText in 2013.

Sencha Announces Significant Upgrade to Ext JS

Sencha announced a significant upgrade to Ext JS, its flagship development platform for building unmatched cross-browser applications. Ext JS 5 is a big step forward for desktop and mobile application development as developers can now easily build and/or move desktop apps to mobile devices, with little to no modification to the existing code base and within the same development tools they already use. Available immediately, Ext JS 5 further entrenches Sencha as the standard for building apps that, with a single code base, can run on touch-based devices as well as computers using either modern or legacy browsers. The promise of web application development is that developers can easily build applications that run in the widest range of devices and that these applications are always up to date for users. Mobile devices and mobile apps disrupted this model as the industry moved to native apps that require independent development for iOS, Android, Windows and any other platform, or even just porting a Mac OS app to an iPad. This extended application development lifecycle constrains the timely delivery of new features and unnecessarily complicates application deployments for both IT and users. In addition, the migration from traditional, point-and-click, desktop computer applications onto touch-based tablets and laptops is a transition marked by significant software engineering work to resolve display and user experience issues. Enter Ext JS 5. With the new version, Ext JS 5, developers can now easily build new cross-platform apps and transform their existing Ext JS 4 desktop apps into touch-based mobile apps on tablets and touch-enabled laptops, through new features including: Touch Support: Ext JS 5 adds support for touch-based gestures and now allows desktop Ext JS apps to run on touchscreen devices such as tablets and touchscreen laptops. Ext JS 5 also includes touch-centric, customizable themes. This touchscreen support enables organizations to target a wide range of applications with one code base, and allows easy adaptation of existing apps for operation on touch devices, thereby extending the deployment footprint and useful life of these applications with minimal cost; Architectural Improvements: With a Model View ViewModel (MVVM) architecture and two-way data binding, it is now easier than ever to build applications. MVVM also fosters more modular development and enhances application scalability. Built-in client-side data session management helps minimize round-trips to the server, and the introduction of routing allows deep linking within applications; Responsive Layouts: Ext JS 5-built apps have an optimal viewing experience across desktops and tablets, regardless of orientation changes, using the new responsive configuration system; and Component Upgrades: As developers' needs grow, Sencha continues to enhance its component library. With Ext JS 5, developers can now add widgets inside of a grid cell for data visualization and big data analytics. Ext JS 5 also adds an upgraded touch-optimized charting package with financial charting capabilities.

Sencha Announces the General Availability of Sencha GXT 3.1

Sencha announced the general availability of Sencha GXT 3.1. The only enterprise-class UI framework for building rich, web-based apps with Java, GXT 3.1 offers a new Theme Builder tool and support for Google Web Toolkit (GWT) 2.6. These features enable developers to create apps using highly optimized HTML5 and JavaScript that are compatible across legacy and modern browsers, significantly improving app design, development and deployment. First released in public beta on February 26, GXT 3.1 builds on community feedback to provide Theme Builder, a new tool for theming GXT applications. Theme Builder removes the need to manually theme each app. Developers can choose from more than 350 configuration properties to create and save their configuration files to generate a theme at the framework level that can be reused for all apps. Developers who prefer to use a template can use the new Neptune Theme, which is generated entirely within Theme Builder without custom HTML, CSS, images or Java. Theme Builder requires Java 7, but the code generated using Theme Builder also supports Java 6. As the number of browsers and versions continues to grow, application developers must ensure that their apps are not only compatible across operating systems, but also across browser versions. Theme Builder streamlines browser compatibility by generating appearances that can be used across both modern and legacy browsers. If a browser does not support certain features, Theme Builder generates images of those features in place of modern CSS and HTML.
