The JavaFX documents were updated for release 8. To symbolize JavaFX integration into Java SE, the JavaFX 8 documentation index has moved to a new URL at http://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/javase-clienttechnologies.htm. The old URL at http://docs.oracle.com/javafx will send you to this new page. You can still access the JavaFX 2 documentation at http://docs.oracle.com/javafx/2/.
The JavaFX writers have always provided many sample applications to go with their tutorials. These samples contain source code, resources, and NetBeans IDE project files, and the accompanying tutorial explains the code. Now you can view a list of the samples on a single index page, see which tutorial they belong to, and download any that you like. Moreover, JavaFX applications are shown in tutorials using a new visual theme.
