These intros become harder as the weeks go by. The core message is always the same: Enoy! 🙂
- It’s another week, so another developer preview release of JavaFX 2.1 is out for Linux, Mac OS and Windows. This week we are up to build 10.
- With the availability of JavaFX 2.1 developer preview builds for Linux, a number of people and news websites covered this. For example: Weigi Gao, Jaxenter, and H online.
- Jasper Potts has put up two blogs posts over at FX Experience. The first post discusses his work on extending the PathBuilder class to include more convenience methods, and secondly he has a post about extending the charts code shipped with JavaFX to apply curve fitting.
- Speaking of the builder classes shipped with JavaFX, Michael Heinrichs, a member of the JavaFX team, has put up a post about the advantages of the JavaFX builder APIs.
- Kevin Farnham put up a blog post over at Java.net about getting started with the JavaFX 2.1 developer preview on Linux.
- Dustin Marx talks about the @DefaultProperty annotation used in the JavaFX APIs, and what this means for you when building user interfaces with FXML.
- The GroovyFX library now has a new website.
- Thierry Janaudy has a blog post showing how to put a pie chart inside a TableView using a custom cell factory, whilst programming in Scala.
- Sébastien Bordes has a post detailing how to build and package JavaFX application with Maven.
- Narayan has blogged about the ‘include’ and ‘define’ tags in FXML.
- Yet another DatePicker control has appeared, pushing my count to at least five such controls. This week it belongs to Altu? Uzunali (apologies for the ? in the name – it seems the webhost doesn’t like the proper character).
- Andrew Krizhanovsky let me know about his wikokit project, which he describes as a “Machine-readable Wiktionary with GUI now ported to JavaFX 2.0. This version contains huge drop-down list of available languages.”
- JIDE Software has put out version 3.3.4 of their libraries.
- Marco Vermeulen has blogged about using a Griffon ComboBox with a GlazedLists EventList.
These conclusions are equally difficult. The core message is always the same: I hope you enjoy what I just linked to, and I hope it was good enough to see you again in a weeks time (where hopefully my introductions and conclusions are slightly more considered!) 🙂
