Java desktop links of the week, September 26

JavaOne is over for another year! I hope those of you that attended had a great time, learned a lot, and managed to attend some of the parties in the evening. There are a number of good links this week, so I’ll only very quickly cover them, especially as I have a lot of catching up to do after being away for a week!

JavaOne is now officially on our doorstep! This time in a week the conference will be kicking off and it’ll be yet another gathering of like-minded Java developers. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone over there for another week of catching up and learning about the latest developments. If you spot me around the place, be sure to come up and say hi 🙂

Speaking of JavaOne, because of it don’t expect a post next week – it is always quite hectic, and whilst I’ll judge it on the day, there is a high probability that there won’t be a links post next week.

  • I released ControlsFX 8.40.12, which includes a number of new features and many bug fixes. Kudos goes to the whole ControlsFX team who keep this well-oiled operation ticking over, and as always, welcome to the new contributors who bring new ideas to the project. This year Eugene and I decided not to present on ControlsFX (like we have the past two or so years), but I didn’t want everyone to go without a new release just because JavaOne wasn’t forcing a release 🙂
  • Adam Carroll has announced that VocabHunter v1.0.17 has been released.
  • Thomas Nield has announced RxJavaFX 0.2.0 has been released, which includes CompositeObservable with Transformer functionality.

A heap of great links this week. People don’t seem to be slowing down in the lead-in to JavaOne. I’m getting incredibly excited – I can’t wait to see you all again! 🙂

I know I sound like a broken record, but it is now only four weeks until JavaOne. I’m quietly panicking over here in New Zealand about how much more I have to get done, and how little time I have to get it done in! I hope you’re all more organised than I am feeling right now! 🙂
