Echo. X-ray. Tango.
We are happy to announce the launch of the new Ext.NET website and download of the new Ext.NET Version 1.0 release candidate.
With the v1.0 release, we've integrated the latest Sencha Ext JS release, added 40 new controls, and have now broken the 100+ control mark (plus dozens of plugins). Never before have ASP.NET developers had access to such a powerful and cohesive suite of web controls for building rich ajax enabled web applications.
Some notable new Components include:
- Calendar: Wicked awesome new Calendar with Day, Week and Month views.
- ButtonGroup: Create Button groupings and layouts similar to Microsoft Office toolbars.
- ListView: A fast and light-weight implementation of a Grid.
- MultiCombo: ComboBox with multi selection ability.
- HBox and VBox Layouts for flexible control of horizontal and vertical item layouts.

We've gone back through the Ext.NET Pro license pricing and sharpened our pencils. Along with the new release we're introducing new pricing and a simplified structure for Ext.NET Pro Licenses and Premium Support Subscriptions.
Options are now bundled in simplified single (1), five (5) or twenty (20) license packs.
On Sale Now
For a limited time (ending December 10, 2010), all Ext.NET Pro + Support Bundles are on SALE. If you’ve been thinking about purchasing a Pro License, now is your chance to jump in and support Ext.NET with even better pricing.
Premium Support For All
Premium Support Subscriptions are now available for both closed-source Pro License and open-source Community License members. In the past we've only been able to offer Premium Support Subscriptions to Pro License holders, but now Premium Support is opened up to both Pro and open-source Community developers. Included with a Premium Support Subscription is priorty technical support, direct access to the real-time project source code, and early access to future releases.
Premium Support Subscriptions can be purchased in the Ext.NET Store.
Free Upgrades For Pro + Premium Support Bundle Purchase
Starting today, when an Ext.NET Pro License and Premium Support subscription is purchased together, a free upgrade to the next major release is included. This is in addition to the already included free minor version upgrades. For example, upgrading from 1.0 to 1.1 to 1.x are all free, and now upgrading to a future 2.0 release would be included during your twelve month subscription.
We would love to hear from you and feedback is always appreciated. Please feel free to join in the conversations happening within the forums and let us know what you think.
