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.

Just a really quick post about the availability of Scenic View 8.0.0 developer preview 4. This release is simply to get Scenic View working with the latest release developer preview builds of JavaFX 8.0.

For those unfamiliar with Scenic View, here’s a short blurb: Scenic View is a JavaFX application designed to make it simple to understand the current state of your application scenegraph, and to also easily manipulate properties of the scenegraph without having to keep editing your code. This lets you find bugs, and get things pixel perfect without having to do the compile-check-compile dance.

For those of you who like pictures more than text, here is a (really old) screenshot of Scenic View 1.2.0:


As always, go and download, and leave feedback as a comment in this post! I know there are bugs, but you’re running developer preview code on top of developer preview code – what did you expect?! 🙂
