A relatively quiet week this week:

  • I released ControlsFX 8.40.13, a major update to ControlsFX with a bunch of improvements and bug fixes. Also, I put out a few interesting stats, most notably that the last release of ControlsFX, 8.40.12, was downloaded over 153,000 times since it was released. That’s pretty amazing!
  • The JavaFX Documentation Project continued to receive more submissions and grow in volume. If you have some insightful JavaFX knowledge or a blog post you think should be included, please create a pull request!
  • Carl Walker has posted about scrolling game backgrounds in Kotlin and JavaFX.
  • Peter Rogge has continued development on his lib-database-objectdb and lib-action projects this week.
