There has be some interesting news in Ext land recently, so we wanted to do a quick roundup post to get it out there:
Some of the major fixes include:
- Items are now automatically laid out when they are first shown – rather than trying to calculate dimensions when they are hidden. This will solve a number of layout issues that occur across all components.
- The toolbar overflow has been improved to support all toolbar items, including CycleButtons and Buttons with toggle enabled (both grouping and otherwise).
- Issues with some animations in the Fx library have been corrected.
Ext GWT 2.0 works with GWT 1.6. With GWT 1.6, the application deployment design was changed to make it easier to integrate your GWT application into an existing J2EE application. Ext GWT 2.0 has been updated to take advantage of the new GWT design.
Ext GWT 2.0 introduces several new UI Components and enhancements to many existing components.
