Firstly, a thank you to everyone who pinged me after my announcement that I was leaving Oracle – I received a huge number of emails of appreciation. My ego is now sufficiently inflated – thanks everyone 🙂 Anyway – it’s the start of another week, so here is another batch of links for you to enjoy! 🙂

  • David Gilbert has released a new project called JFreeChart-FX that contains the JavaFX extensions for JFreeChart, and alongside this a new version of JFreeChart (v1.5.0) that aligns with this new project as a dependency. This improves the JavaFX support in JFreeChart. Simultaneously, David has made a new release of FXGraphics2D (a small API that allows Java2D code to be reused with the JavaFX Canvas) that removes some private API calls so that it can be used with JDK9.
  • Gerrit Grunwald has posted about smoothed charts in JavaFX. Very nice.
  • Renato Athaydes has updated LogFX, a simple Log reader supporting color highlighting and able to handle giant files.
  • yWorks has a new release of yFiles for JavaFX. This is a commercial diagramming framework.
