At JavaOne the other week Eugene Ryzhikov and I announced the release of ControlsFX 8.40.10. Since I got back from JavaOne I have been meaning to announce the release, but never quite got around to it. Now that I have a few spare minutes, I am very pleased to bring this to the communities attention! 🙂

This release is primarily a bug fix release, but there are also a number of nice new features included. It is recommended that all users of previous releases upgrade to this release. This release is baselined on JDK 8u40, which means that we require at least that, but we have also ensured that this build works on more recent releases (notably 8u60 and above broke ControlsFX due to our use of internal API – we are no longer broken in 8.40.10).

As always, you can download ControlsFX directly from the main ControlsFX website, or else you can add it as a dependency in your preferred dependency management tool.

Finally, as I always stress when doing these releases – this release was a community effort and there are a lot of people to thank. At last count, there are over 90 contributors to ControlsFX these days, and this is incredibly pleasing.
