This is the week of JavaFX !
By dannycoward on Dec 01, 2008
We moved the launch to the 4th December, a couple days later than we'd originally planned, in order to accommodate the guests at the launch party. Your humble Planetarium Janitor will be there in person, sans broom, reacting in real time for all to see.
In the meantime, interest continues to pick up. And there are a few goodies to read already, ahead of the day. Chris Oliver is happy that finally developers will be able to judge the quality of JavaFX for themselves. Robert Field has completed the JavaFX Script language reference. JavaFX.com has published the feature list of the 1.0 SDK for all to see (see right sidebar).
Others have been experimenting with combining JavaFX with other tools and software, like Prashant using JavaFX to let Portlets break free of the browser (watch them here !) or Silveira creating a plugin to the Inkscape tool to export SVG drawings to JavaFX.
