Thomas Hansen has released Gaia Glory the latest version of the toolkit library.
There are a ton of samples, and Thomas highlights the following:
One big feature is the new skinning:
We are for this release MIT licensing our skins. Not only is the skin files MIT licensed, but our entire DOM structure is now 95% compatible with ExtJS which means that if you can get hold of skins for ExtJS you can also use those skins for your Gaia applications. Or you can create skins yourself commercially using our skins as a basis which will have a market for both Gaia Ajax Widgets and ExtJS. We have tried very hard to be 100% ExtJS DOM and CSS class compatible with ExtJS, unfortunately this was impossible since we were also determined to be 100% XHTML compliant for this release and this meant fixing some XHTML bugs in regards to the DOM structure of ExtJS. This though also means that our previous skins are no longer working with Gaia. Though I think you should be able to find a “gazillion” free ExtJS skins out there if you look which should by far out-weight the backdraft of not being able to use the “old” skins anymore.
