I thought I will share some JavaFX news(good news for once) since this forum is quite dead.
Seems JavaFX 2.0 Early access is out to selected partners.
A few nice comments here:http://www.adam-bien.com/roller/abien/entry/java_fx_2_0_the
Startup of the provided examples is extremely fast < 1 sec and orders of magnitude faster than previous Java FX 1.3 samples
A double click on a Jar-file is sufficient to launch a Java FX app - no further configuration was necessary
The doc comes in fresh design and is compelling
Java FX 2.0 is extremely easy to integrate with Java projects - the inclusion of a single Jar is sufficient
The runtime is far smaller, than expected
Public beta might be in Q2
