Well, look at that – JavaFX 1.3 came out this week. This weeks links are obviously largely about this, as I expect it to be for some time. 1.3 is a great release, but rather than rehash my thoughts here, I’ve got a bunch of links to other posts below. Enjoy! 🙂
- As mentioned, JavaFX 1.3 came out this week. You can read the official blog post about it, check out the new features, and read the migration guide to understand what was changed since 1.2.
- We posted a ‘Welcome JavaFX 1.3‘ post, and also covered our top 10 features of JavaFX 1.3. We also plan to start putting up a bunch of posts over the next week or two to cover more details in JavaFX 1.3.
- Stephen Chin has covered his top 10 features in the new JavaFX 1.3 release.
- Dean Iverson has done a great job filling in the gaps on how to style JavaFX, this time with a blog introducing how to use the new CSS styling available in JavaFX 1.3.
- Jim Weaver has posted a 3D JavaFX application that demonstrates some of the new 3D API and functionality in javaFX 1.3.
- Johannes Schneider has done a bunch of posts recently, so I’ll just mention the titles here: ‘JavaFX: Creating custom controls – the right way‘, ‘JavaFX: Bounds by example‘, ‘JavaFX: Gotcha in skin assignment‘ and ‘JavaFX 1.3: Binding improved‘.
- Pedro Duque Vieira has blogged about adding animated characters to the Modellus project he is working. Of additional interest is that this application is a merging of Swing and JavaFX. Check out the YouTube video to see it in action.
- Mark Anro Silver has posted two code samples on JFXStudio. The first one shows glow and lighting effects, and the second post showing how you can apply effects on top of graphics for interesting effects.
- Peter Karich has posted about his thoughts on creating simple desktop widgets in JavaFX. He also posted about creating a shadow motion effect in JavaFX.
- Itssmee has blogged about comparing the Processing language to JavaFX Script.
- Have a play with the MetaMaps tool being created in JavaFX, and be sure to offer any feedback you may have.
That’s all folks! Keep sending in the links and I’ll catch you in a weeks time.
