For PIE users, not much will change. It will remain free and will continue to be developed in the open and released under a liberal open source license. By joining Sencha Labs, it gains a permanent home and is backed by the resources of the foundation, so you can be sure it will be maintained going forward. I will continue to be its primary maintainer and responsible for the progress and direction of the project, as an employee of Sencha. Other members of the brilliant Sencha team may contribute too, and of course, contributions from the community are always welcome!
I’m really looking forward to PIE’s continuing development at its new home. Expect big things to come!
