JavaFX Links of August 2023
I’ve taken a holiday this month, so probably missed a lot of the amazing JavaFX news, but still some things caught my attention and you can find them in this LinksOfTheMonth overview.
But the most essential and thrilling news is the release of the new version of jfx-central.com! A complete new home for “all things JavaFX” thanks to the amazing work of a whole team of JavaFX enthousiast. Indeed, yes, it’s a website but actually a JavaFX application, so you can also run it as a desktop app. And what’s even more important… the full sources are available on GitHub.
