JavaOne is over for another year! I hope those of you that attended had a great time, learned a lot, and managed to attend some of the parties in the evening. There are a number of good links this week, so I’ll only very quickly cover them, especially as I have a lot of catching up to do after being away for a week!
JavaOne is now officially on our doorstep! This time in a week the conference will be kicking off and it’ll be yet another gathering of like-minded Java developers. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone over there for another week of catching up and learning about the latest developments. If you spot me around the place, be sure to come up and say hi 🙂
Speaking of JavaOne, because of it don’t expect a post next week – it is always quite hectic, and whilst I’ll judge it on the day, there is a high probability that there won’t be a links post next week.
- I released ControlsFX 8.40.12, which includes a number of new features and many bug fixes. Kudos goes to the whole ControlsFX team who keep this well-oiled operation ticking over, and as always, welcome to the new contributors who bring new ideas to the project. This year Eugene and I decided not to present on ControlsFX (like we have the past two or so years), but I didn’t want everyone to go without a new release just because JavaOne wasn’t forcing a release 🙂
- Adam Carroll has announced that VocabHunter v1.0.17 has been released.
- Thomas Nield has announced RxJavaFX 0.2.0 has been released, which includes CompositeObservable with Transformer functionality.
A heap of great links this week. People don’t seem to be slowing down in the lead-in to JavaOne. I’m getting incredibly excited – I can’t wait to see you all again! 🙂
I know I sound like a broken record, but it is now only four weeks until JavaOne. I’m quietly panicking over here in New Zealand about how much more I have to get done, and how little time I have to get it done in! I hope you’re all more organised than I am feeling right now! 🙂
Things are getting quiet around here! As I say every year around this time, people must be starting to think about JavaOne and planning their talks, and open source projects and news tends to go a little bit quiet 🙂 It’s only a month to go until JavaOne now!
- Gerrit Grunwald has written an article on sharing your location with friends using the cloud (as well as JavaFX and Gluon on mobile devices).
- Peter Rogge has released ‘Lib-Tile’ 0.1.0. As he puts it: “Lib-Tile is a multi Maven project written in JavaFX and NetBeans 8.0.2 and provides the functionalities to use and handle easily Tiles in your JavaFX application. A Tile is per definition a little transparent Image which overlay a background-color or -image with the help of repetitions from the image in a layer.”
- There have been updates to a number of open source projects, including Medusa, RxJavaFX, the NetBeans IDE afterburner.fx plugin, and SmartCSV.fx.
Yikes, it’s August already – that means that JavaOne is now ‘next month’….that seems way too soon! 🙂
A quick post today as I battle without internet and an overflowing todo list. Enjoy! 🙂
A heap of releases this week, and a few good articles too. It’s now only two months until JavaOne, so I hope everyone is starting to think about their presentations, projects, and social activities. I can’t wait to get over to San Francisco again and see you all – it is always one of the highlights of the year for me, and I hope for you all as well!
