Hello everyone! Apologies for the radio silence for so long – I’ve received many emails from people worried I had disappeared into a black hole 🙂 It’s just been super hectic around here – Christmas, new years, a lot of travel – but now things are settling down and I can get back into the groove of posting these links again.
- Gerrit Grunwald continues to do amazing things with JavaFX charts. He has posts on a “Florence Nightingale inspired Coxcomb Chart“, Nested Bar Charts, and Stream Charts.
- Glazed Lists 1.11.0 has been released.
- ScraM has been updated: “Kids and adults alike can make games of all kinds in ScraM. With a drag-and-drop designer (built with JavaFX), ScraM makes coding fun and
easy. Get it all here
, and watch videos here
- Dmitry Kan has announced a new release of Luke, a “toolbox for analyzing and maintaining your Lucene / Solr / Elasticsearch index on low level.”
We’re definitely heading into the holiday season now – the link count is decreasing as people prepare to take some much-deserved holidays!
It is crazy that we are already in December. Soon it’ll be the festive season, and I hope everyone takes the time to relax and unwind. This week there are only a few links to note, so enjoy 🙂
- Gerrit Grunwald has worked on Sankey charts for his Friday Fun Component. They look very nice 🙂
- Chris Seikatsu has announced Dyn2d, “a 2d rendering package for JavaFX. It’s more than just a game engine. With Dyn2d you can turn your JavaFX application into an interactive experience.”
- Thomas Nield has announced nullable binding feature for RxJavaFX.
- To indulge me, I announced this week that following my leaving of Oracle, I am now happy to announce that my new role is at Microsoft, as a senior cloud developer advocate working to grow Java on the Azure cloud.
A relatively quiet week in desktop Java land, but definitely no less interesting! 🙂
A small list of links this week, but I hope you enjoy nonetheless 🙂
