"I am pleased to announce the 0.6 release of the open-source JFXtras project, the largest 3rd party library of JavaFX add-ons. This release is a very large undertaking that represents the work of several dozen contributors over the past 6 months.
JFXtras 0.6 will work with any JavaFX release in the 1.2 family. We recommend using the very latest release (currently JavaFX 1.2.3), which can be downloaded from JavaFX.com.
Starting immediately, we will be focusing on developing a JavaFX 1.3 compatible JFXtras release. Our plan is to release a 1.3 compatible version of JFXtras within 1 week of the official release announcement from Oracle."
Congrats to Stephen Chin and JFXtras crew, which includes Keith Combs, Jim Clarke, Dean Iverson, David Armitage, Tom Eugelink, John Freeman, Peter Pilgrim, Christophe DUFOUR, Joshua Marinacci, Simon Morris, Andres Almiray, Jeff Friesen, Andrew Hughes, and Liu Huasong!
By the way, my next post on this blog will help announce the JavaFX SDK 1.3 release, which will start the 30-day clock ticking for the RIA Exemplar Challenge deadline. :-)
