Wijmo has a solid infrastructure based on a powerful and familiar data layer. The main data binding interface is ICollectionView, which provides currency, filtering, grouping, and sorting services. Wijmo also includes the IEditableCollectionView and IPagedCollectionView interfaces, which support editing and paging. Wijmo’s ICollectionView interface is virtually identical to the one in .NET, so if you know .NET you will feel right at home.
FlexGrid and CollectionView are two huge parts of Wijmo 5, but there is much more to it than than. We have included Charts, Input, Menu, and even a Globalization API.
Don’t worry, we will be maintaining and releasing the current version of wijmo into the foreseeable future. We built a product of widgets that uses Progressive Enhancement and works everywhere, including IE6. vCurrent is still a viable product for many customers and we will continue to support them. We wanted to build a new product that targeted more modern browsers and creating a clean separation gave us that freedom. So use Wijmo 5 if you are targeting IE9 and up and use Wijmo Pro if you need legacy browser support.
