JavaFX introduces new visual layout tool for building GUI applications.

JavaFX Version 1.3 is now available.

JavaFX is a client platform for delivering rich internet applications across various devices. It aims to extend the capabilities of the Java platform by delivering audio, video, rich text, vector graphics and animation via a scripting language.

This release features enhanced support for UI controls, CSS skinning, and programmatic layout, and Amble, a new native JavaFX font family. It also features NetBeans IDE 6.9 Beta, which introduces the JavaFX Composer, a visual layout tool for visually building form-based, JavaFX GUI applications. This release updates the way JavaFX handles binding, and features a rewrite of the existing UI controls, which should better take advantage of the new CSS support in JavaFX. Please see the Release Notes for more details.
