On the GeoExt website their tutorial page has some instructions on how to setup up a application to use GeoEXT. This is the page I am referring to.

It mentions that you should download GeoEXT 1.0 and ExtJS 3.2. I have since noticed that Sencha has released ExtJS 4. Can ExtJS 4 be used along side GeoEXT 1.0 without any issues? Or should I go by the book and install ExtJS 3.2?

Thanks Ando

It appears that it is not so seamless. The directory structure and files of ExtJS 4.0 is quite different to that of ExtJS 3.2. – Ando May 9 '11 at 5:09
Nope. Honestly, you can just go the pure jQuery/jQueryUI route – Ragi Yaser Burhum Jan 15 '12 at 1:18

In a word - no, and there are as yet no ongoing development plans to do so, but it will be done eventually.

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

So vahid writes code to address this issue months later, open sources it and then and he gets downvoted for the short sentence? upvoting. – Ragi Yaser Burhum Jan 16 '12 at 8:55
