I am pleased to announce the 0.5 release of JFXtras.  This release updates the project with JavaFX 1.2 support, plus includes a major overhaul of the Shapes, Borders, and Layouts, as well as new support for wrapping JavaFX components in Swing applications.

You can grab the latest bits here:

And browse the Javadoc online.

Finally, you can try out the new shapes by running the DrawJFXtras sample program from the Pro JavaFX Platform book (which has an entire chapter dedicated to the JFXtras project and other JavaFX FOSS):

Draw JFXtras Sample Application

I have included additional examples and details on the changes in this release in the announcement on my blog:


Thanks to the whole JFXtras team, and especially Steve Bixby, Jim Clarke, Dean Iverson, and Keith Combs, for making this release possible.

Enjoy the new JFXtras Release!
