- Jasper Potts converted the animate.css project to JavaFX, providing 52 ready to use animations for you to use in your applications.
- Michael Heinrichs has blogged about how to create a sprite animation with JavaFX. The way in which he does it is quite interesting, and well worth reading to understand this area of the JavaFX API.
- Steve Northover has updated the instructions for building OpenJFX.
- Angela Caicedo has put up part two of her ‘building your first JavaFX application using NetBeans 7.1‘ YouTube video.
- The Pro JavaFX 2 book was released this week. I read the first edition and it covered everything I needed to know before joining the JavaFX team, so it is well recommended.
- Johan Vos has blogged about the availability of RedFX for JavaFX 2, and has a sample application showing how to use it.
- Tom Schindl has announced that the next release of e(fx)clipse will contain improved OSGi support. This makes it easier to use JavaFX within Eclipse views.

- Andy Moncsek has blogged about how to use his open source JacpFX framework.
- Christian Schudt has blogged about his improvements to the JavaFX TreeView control to allow for populating it using just a List of items, rather than having to create TreeItem instances. This is something I’ll likely add to the DataFX project in the coming weeks as it seems like a useful thing to have.
- Brian Schlining has created a ScalaFX version of the GroovyFX demo application.
