Netzke - a library for building client-server GUI components with Sencha Ext JS and Ruby - was updated to version 0.8. It brings a major, backward-incompatible update to the API (making it more intuitive and fun to use), more thorough docs, and cleaner code. The project website, a few tutorials, and a couple of satellite apps have been updated, too - so it's even easier to start writing your own complex backend apps.
