The big news this week is that
JDK 8u40 was released, including the very latest JavaFX bits. 8u40 is a big release, including a few new UI controls (Spinner, Formatted TextField, and Dialogs), as well as accessibility support on Windows and OS X. For those looking for Scene Builder – it was announced by Oracle that it will
only be shipped in source code form from here on out. However, this week saw the
arrival of a new JavaFX-related company called Gluon. Gluon has announced that it will ship builds of Scene Builder, and even plans to improve support for third party controls, etc. Since that announcement, Scene Builder installers have also been built and made available.
Jens Deters has announced the release of FontAwesomeFX 8.2.
Sebastiaan Hogenbirk has blogged about creating a trend curve/line in JavaFX charts.
Manuel Mauky has blogged about data models for the TreeTableView control, including posting code for recursively built tree hierarchies.
René Jahn has a post about a desktop pane for JavaFX, part of their (open source) JVx framework.
