Things are getting quiet around here! As I say every year around this time, people must be starting to think about JavaOne and planning their talks, and open source projects and news tends to go a little bit quiet 🙂 It’s only a month to go until JavaOne now!

  • Gerrit Grunwald has written an article on sharing your location with friends using the cloud (as well as JavaFX and Gluon on mobile devices).
  • Peter Rogge has released ‘Lib-Tile’ 0.1.0. As he puts it: “Lib-Tile is a multi Maven project written in JavaFX and NetBeans 8.0.2 and provides the functionalities to use and handle easily Tiles in your JavaFX application. A Tile is per definition a little transparent Image which overlay a background-color or -image with the help of repetitions from the image in a layer.”
  • There have been updates to a number of open source projects, including Medusa, RxJavaFX, the NetBeans IDE afterburner.fx plugin, and SmartCSV.fx.
