- I missed one of Dirk Lemmermann’s JavaFX tips – this one on ScrollPane with a DropShadow.
- jaxenter has published a three-part interview with a few people from the JavaFX community (myself included), in relation to the just-released JavaFX 11. You can read part one, part two, and part three.

We’ve hit October already! It is crazy how fast the years are racing by, which is why it is so important to take this moment to recognise the people doing contributions to Java on the client. Here’s the links of the week – enjoy 🙂
- Florian Brunner has an update on his Drombler JStore project. There are now REST services, and JAP packaging functionality.
- Pedro DV has blogged about an updated release of his fluent design style project JMetro, which brings support for ProgressBar styling.
- Andres Almiray has released updates to a number of projects to make them JavaFX 11 compatible.
- goxr3plus has open sourced XR3Converter, a “powerful JavaFX application for converting any audio to any audio and any video to any video or audio.”
- The big news from the last week is the release of JavaFX 11. Kevin Rushforth announced this on the openjfx-dev mailing list, and linked to the brand new OpenJFX.io site produced by Gluon. Speaking of Gluon, they also did a JavaFX 11 release announcement and mentioned the availability of the JavaFX long term support offering for companies seeking backports of fixes, etc.
- Jaxenter did an interview with four people from the Java / JavaFX community (myself included) about the release of JavaFX 11. The first part of the interview series is now online.
- Oshan Mendis has announced the release of CustomStage v1.3.2, with huge CPU usage optimizations and bug fixes.
- GoXr3plus Studio has published a tutorial and library for drawing audio amplitudes like in SoundCloud with JavaFX. They have also published an updated release of the open source XR3Player.
Apologies for the radio silence recently – travel makes keeping on top of my blogging duties a little bit more difficult. Here’s the latest links – enjoy! 🙂
- Dirk Lemmermann has open sourced the WorkbenchFX library, which was carried out by Marco Sanfratello and François Martin, students from the FHNW University in Switzerland.
- Dirk is also encouraging people interested in JavaFX to attend the JavaFX Days conference in Zurich in December. More details on the JavaFX days website.
- Pedro DV has two posts related to his fluent design work. Firstly, a post on button / toggle button / tooltip styling, and secondly, a post on text field and password field styling.
- Gerrit Grunwald has created a morphing clock skin for the Medusa – very nice 🙂
- Almas Baimagambetov has updated FXGL, the JavaFX Game Library project. It is becoming very nicely polished now 🙂
- Brian Young has an article on how to do drag and drop using the JavaFX TreeView control.
- Pedro DV has posted a new fluent design style for the JavaFX Slider control.
- The Conservation Coding website has an article about using JavaFX from a science perspective.
- sirolf2009 has created a JavaFX graph visualisation library.
- Adrian D. Finlay has blogged about how to make cross-platform mobile apps using JavaFX.
A quiet week in the land of Java desktop, with only a few links to share. Nonetheless, I hope you all enjoy 🙂
I’m back from my travels last week and have a few links to share – enjoy! 🙂
- Tom Schindl has posted about supporting OpenJFX 11 from JDK11 onwards in e(fx)clipse.
- Pedro DV has posted about fluent designs for ComboBox and ScrollBar.
- Carl Walker has posted about aligning labels with type-safe CSS using TornadoFX.
- GOXR3PLUS STUDIO has a bunch of activity this week, including a new version of XR3Player with “new DJ Features and ability to connect to dropbox through JavaFX”, a video tutorial on how to use Iconli font icons, and an updated release of FX-Borderless-Scene.
A quiet week this week!
Heaps of good links this week – enjoy!
- Johan Vos announced that JavaFX 11 early access builds are now available in Maven Central, and the final release is on track for release in September (with JDK 11). This is really cool as we are getting to the point where JavaFX is decoupled from and able to progress at its own pace, separate from the JDK. There is a short how-to document up on the Gluon website.
- Pedro DV continues to improve JMetro, adding support for TreeView, Tabs / TabPane, and context menu.
- Gerrit Grunwald has two posts this week. Firstly an anchor selector control, and secondly, on rolling gradients.
- Jordan Martinez has announced he is looking for someone to take over maintaining the RichTextFX (and related) projects, as he is moving onto other technologies and won’t have the time going forward. I hope someone steps up, as there is some really cool technology here and it would be a shame to see it abandoned.
- Andres Almiray has two blog posts this week. Firstly about creating aggregate JavaFX bindings, and secondly about using Sass in JavaFX (something that I know Gluon does also with Gluon Mobile).
- Dirk Lemmermann has another JavaFX tip, this time on masking / clipping / alpha channels.
- Tristan Deloche has open sourced Lyrebird, a free, open-source, cross-platform twitter client.
