The updated components bring better stability and performance, and provide compatibility with IE8 RC, Google Chrome 2 and Safari 4 in addition to other supported browsers.
dhtmlxGrid was enhanced with extended grouping functionality and faster rendering capabilities.
There are also a couple of innovations:
The first one is dhtmlxConnector, a solution for client-server interaction for DHTMLX components which content is bound to the server database, such as grid, treegrid, tree, and combo. It is a set of PHP classes that maintains connection with datasources on server, and thereby greatly simplifies the usage of the components. We plan to release the similar solutions for other server side languages in the near future.
Another one is dhtmlxTree.Net, an ASP.Net control built over dhtmlxTree component. The rich client-side functionality of dhtmlxTree remained the same, but now the component can be effortlessly integrated in .Net applications. Those who already have Commercial or Enterprise license for dhtmlxTree PRO can get dhtmlxTree.
