Jesus, love your book.

I'm new to extjs and will start building an app, but i'm not sure whether i should try the weather the pain of building using the new extjs 4.0 MVC patterns, or should i just stick to patterns and api from Jesus' version 3 book?

I would prefer to learn using the most current idioms and API, but i given that there is a lack of depth with the available MVC doc, i'm thinking that practically i should stick to Jesus' book and the 3.0 patterns?

Any thoughts?

Thank you.

Re: should i hold off on trying to design an app using extjs MVC?
Hi Marko,

I'm *so* sorry for not responding sooner. Life has been crazy hectic.

The short and skinny is that Ext JS 4.1's MVC will be better than 4.0. I'm personally waiting for that to go full-in.
