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.
JavaFX 2.1 Dev Preview build 09 available for Windows, Mac and Linux
by Jonathan Giles | Jan 23, 2012 | News |
I’ve been waiting for a while to say this, but we now have JavaFX 2.1 developer preview builds available for Windows, Mac and Linux. From here on out we’ll be putting out developer preview builds for all three platforms. Hopefully that pleases everyone who has been asking for Linux support 🙂
That’s just awesome, going to start with javafx tomorrow. =)
Finally I can switch back to linux. Well done, Thank you
Thats what I really needed ! I can develop new projects with javafx now ! and forget about doing them using the ugly web technologies ! 🙂
Linux version is broken 🙁
After some next test Ill send some issue to jira
Awesome – this was a development blocker!
Great, now I can start playing with it.
Are there plans to release a 64-bit Linux version?
is it possible to run it in 64-bit?
This is very good news for those of us developing under non-win32 platforms.
its works on 64 to
Vitaily Are you sur that it is working in 64 bit
Yes. Tested on ARCHLinux 64. You need to install lib32s of your distribution and also use 32bit java .
I’ve just finished testing Windows samples on a 32-bit Debian Linux machine and at least “brickbreaker” works.
This is how you can make it work on 64-bit Ubuntu.
a.) Use 32bit JDK as the instructions say.
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
That should do it.
Is there an applet support for Mac OS in this build?
When should we expect the beta support for applets(what build)?
We’re waiting for Java 7 on Mac. The version of the applet that JavaFX requires is the same that ships with java 7, not Java 6, so we cannot run FX applets until Java 7 which is scheduled for release this year.
thanks for the info Richard.
Is there an exact release date for Java & on Mac or an estimate? I can’t find it on the roadmap..
what is the chance that javfx 2.1 get 3D primiteves? is read something on previous posts but the actual status they are missing.
No 64-bit version for Linux 🙁
I don’t want to install outdated 32 bit software.
32 and 64 bit java’s do not play nice together on Linux.
Dissapointing that Oracle refuse to support current tech.
There are 64-bit versions available for Linux here:
