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.

Welcome to another week of JavaFX links! 🙂 Let’s get right into it.

  • There was a new beta build of JavaFX 2.0 put out this week – b34 includes drag and drop support, as well as a Java to JavaScript bridge for WebView among the numerous bug fixes, API tweaks and performance improvements.
  • The Silicon Valley JavaFX Users Group is planning another meeting this week, but I’m not sure what the topic is. It is on Wednesday, July 13, 2011, 6:00 PM at the Oracle Conference Center.
  • Tom Schindl has released e(fx)clipse 0.0.2, which includes improved CSS editing support, as well as the start of better JavaFX integration into Eclipse in the form of JavaFX library specification in projects, a ‘New JavaFX Project’ wizard and JavaDoc integration.
  • jojorabbit4 has updated his ComboBox control to allow for more customisation.
  • Narayan Gopal Maharjan has put up a AutoFill TextBox with support for as-you-type filtering and auto-complete.
  • The GroovyFX project is continuing to get noticed – this week hideaki-t put up a custom browser using GroovyFX to demonstrate the power of GroovyFX and JavaFX.

I hope you all found something useful in this weeks link roundup. Keep up all the hard work folks, and I’ll be back in a weeks time to link to you all over again.
