This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Subject is misleading, but just wondering about the name change of the company behind ExtJS (the library). They are now Sencha and I guess I'm wondering if you noticed any major philosophy/developer changes when they made this move.
Was it more so ExtJS could stand out on its own (and not be confused with the company)? Or so they could go off and do other non-Ext-ish things without being stuck with the name?
FWIW, I already have the book, so if I happen to win in the drawing I'll gladly defer. Still haven't read it but it's on the list for sure.
Thanks for that link. This part kind of answered my questions:

The roadmaps for Ext JS, Ext GWT, Designer, Direct etc. don't change as a result of this. We're very excited about the new things in Ext JS 4.0 and the rest of the product line. Some of the individual product names might evolve in the future (for example, we're thinking of renaming Ext Designer to Sencha Designer), but don't expect any major or immediate changes here.
One of the benefits of the name change is also that it separates a product name – Ext JS – from the company name, Sencha.
