FX Experience Has Gone Read-Only
I've been maintaining FX Experience for a really long time now, and I love hearing from people who enjoy my weekly links roundup. One thing I've noticed recently is that maintaining two sites (FX Experience and JonathanGiles.net) takes more time than ideal, and splits the audience up. Therefore, FX Experience will become read-only for new blog posts, but weekly posts will continue to be published on JonathanGiles.net. If you follow @FXExperience on Twitter, I suggest you also follow @JonathanGiles. This is not the end - just a consolidation of my online presence to make my life a little easier!
tl;dr: Follow me on Twitter and check for the latest news on JonathanGiles.net.
It’s been a really long time – apologies for the massive gap since the last post. I promise to get back to more regular postings again now 🙂 Here’s the links that I captured during this time:
I’m back and well-rested after a week in Honolulu (although as it was noted to me on Twitter, taking kids on vacation is pretty much turning the vacation into ‘looking after kids in a different location’).
- Peter Rogge has released Lib-I18N version 0.5.0. This library “allows developers to easily bind `.properties` key (values) to a [StringBinding]. So changing the language during runtime in a JavaFX application won’t be a problem anymore.”
- Adam Carroll has released Santulator, an open source secret santa present draw app written with JavaFX 11.
- Pedro DV has released JMetro 4.8, with a number of Metro / Fluent Design styles revamped or tweaked.
- GOXR3PLUS STUDIO has released an update to the media player / web browser called XR3Player (along with a video of it in action), as well as an update to FX-BorderlessScene, an “undecorated JavaFX Scene with implemented move, resize, minimise, maximise, close and Windows Aero Snap controls”.
A quiet week this time, with just two links of note that I could find:
- GestureFX, a lightweight gesture-enabled pane for JavaFX, has had a new release.
- I came across the open-source Paintera, which “is a general visualization tool for 3D volumetric data and proof-reading in segmentation/reconstruction with a primary focus on neuron reconstruction from electron micrographs in connectomics.” It is built using JavaFX 2D and 3D interfaces. There is a cool video linked on Twitter (I wish I could find a better one)
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 🙂
