Java desktop links of the week, June 17

Another week, another bunch of links. Enjoy! 🙂



  • Jide Software has announced the release of version 3.5.6 of their suite of libraries. This release appears to be mostly a bug fix release, with a large number of bugs fixed.
  • Mario Torre has posted on how to use Font Awesome in Swing applications. Mario describes Font Awesome as follows: “The idea is pretty clever, basically embedding SVG descriptions of icons inside a true type font so that they can be referenced by their unicode id. So you basically can add to your web page with just the magic of a little CSS, those fantastic icons anywhere a font could go.”

Catch you all next week!
