Java desktop links of the week, January 9

Another year already! I hope everyone had a good break over the holiday period. I know I did, although I have to say I wish it were longer! In any case, I’ve been away on holiday and not keeping a close eye on the latest Java desktop news, so apologies to people who worked hard and who I have missed. Please email me and I’ll be sure to include you next week.

Java desktop links of the week, December 19

I’ve spent the last two weeks crammed inside a steel tube doing a full trip around the world bringing JavaFX joy to developers everywhere 🙂 Because of this, I missed out on posting the links for the last few weeks, and equally bad, I became so busy during that time I couldn’t keep track of things that happened. Therefore, I apologise in advance if I missed your news from the last few weeks. Please email me to let me know, and I will include it next week.

Java desktop links of the week, November 28

  • Thierry Wasylczenko has been working on JStackFX, which provides a user interface to analyse thread dumps generated by the Java jstack tool. It looks very nice!
  • Edvin Syse has released TornadoFX 1.5.8, which includes a heap of improvements and some new controls such as a slideshow component.
  • Alessio Vinerbi has released an updated version of his open source AnchorFX docking framework for JavaFX. This looks very nice.
  • Jens Deters has released MQTT.fx 1.3.0, which includes the results of hard work on stability and performance improvements, along with some UI additions.
  • Tom Schindl has two posts this week. Firstly, he has created a ‘SashPane‘ for JavaFX that has slightly different characteristics compared to the JavaFX SplitPane, and secondly he has a short post on some performance improvements he has introduced into e(fx)clipse to deal with reparenting nodes in the scenegraph.
