Awesome! Was just hacking something and needed a check box combo box. Then I thought, "hmm, I wonder if ext toolkit has it?", and lo and behold there it is and works like a charm. Thanks so much!

I was looking forward to the TokenizedTextBox (facebook TextBox style), but it was cut off of this release. What a bummer.
