Sencha Launches Touch 1.0 With A New Price-Point: Free
Sencha, the Sequoia-funded company behind Ext JS, has hit a big milestone today: it's releasing the 1.0 edition of its Sencha Touch framework. Sencha Touch allows developers to build web-based applications with the polished look of native iPhone apps, but with the benefit of being cross-platform (the same web apps will run on Android's browser too). Today's 1.0 release brings with it some big news: the framework's commercial license, which was previously $99, is now free (customers who already paid will receive refunds). This is a big change, and one that Sencha hopes will lead to a landgrab of developer mindshare.
