Today we released an update for the JavaFX 1.0 platform. This update is now included as part of the JavaFX downloads.
JavaFX 1.0 SDK Update 1 provides the following enhancements:
- This release contains performance enhancements that enable smoother playback of large video files on both Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows platforms. It contains functional changes that enable video to be played as it progressively downloads from a remote server through HTTP requests.
- Progressive downloading is now enabled for WMV, FLV, and FXM video files on the Microsoft platform. The video startup time on the Microsoft Windows platform has been improved in this release.
- Forward-seeking is now enabled for FLV and FXM files on both Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows, when seeking within the currently downloaded buffer. Seeking beyond the buffer is not currently supported.
Release notes for the update are available here. You can see the video enhancements in action here.
We've also released a new tutorial - Deploy A Rich Internet Application Developed With JavaFX Technology on javafx.com. This tutorial guides readers through the different options for deploying JavaFX applications as Java Web Start (JNLP), Java applet, or stand-alone applications on the desktop, in a browser, or using the JavaFX Mobile Emulator.
