The newest release for Quarkus, version 1.3.0.Final, has arrived. Explore the newest changes and see how the Quarkus Java framework helps Java fit in with the cloud native world. Let’s take a closer look at the changelog and see what’s new.
Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week, JavaFX 14 was released, so we sat down with Johan Vos, Java Champion and Gluon co-founder, to discuss all that’s new. We also took a closer look at the advantages of using Clojure and welcomed the latest Apache NetBeans release.
Over the course of its 20-year history, it is clear that Java’s success, and security, has developed due to its continual reinvention, adaptation, and evolution through the works of its community. This article will explore some key innovations and milestones in Java’s history, and explain how they connect with its continued efforts to remain secure through its lifespan.
JavaFX 14 arrived yesterday, bringing with it a short and sweet list of new features, improvements and bug fixes. While there’s nothing overtly spectacular in this release, it paves the way for bigger things in six months when JavaFX 15 is due. Let’s take a closer look at what has changed.
JavaFX 14: “There’s no need to use an older version of JavaFX when doing mobile development any more.”
Yes, six months have gone by in a flash – it’s JavaFX 14’s release date! To celebrate the next step in JavaFX’s story, we sat down with Johan Vos, Java Champion and Gluon co-founder, to talk about what the new release has in store, what his personal highlights of this new release are and what the future holds for JavaFX.
A new candidate Java enhancement proposal, or JEP, aims to disable biased locking by default, and deprecate all related command-line options. Biased locking is costly to maintain, especially since the gains previously seen have diminished to a point where the effort is no longer worth the reward. Let’s take a closer look.
Clojure enables you to write programs that are better and more flexible, and above all makes you much more productive than using Java. By now the language has proven itself in the industry. Perhaps a good reason for you to switch to Clojure? We listed ten advantages of using Clojure for you.
Apache NetBeans has come a long way since its creation as a student project back in 1996. Now, the third release according to the new release cycle has arrived. Apache NetBeans 11.3 introduces new Java enhancements that support JDK 14, new visual themes and support for dark mode, improvements for HiDPI displays, and more.
A new candidate Java enhancement proposal, or JEP, wants to overhaul the implementations of two APIs that have been around since the days of JDK 1.0. It’s not an easy job, but since the community is laying the groundwork to enable Project Loom to come to fruition, it’s a necessary one. Let’s take a closer look.
Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week, the creator of Concurnas presented the new JVM language in detail. We also welcomed the latest Istio release and the first RedMonk ranking of 2020—and we showed how embracing compassion, respect, and empathy can make you a better programmer.
Kotlin 1.3.70 has arrived. The incremental release for the JVM programming language comes with a number of updates and experimental features—from faster debugging to customizable color schemes and an updated machine learning model for code completion in IntelliJ IDEA.
GraphQL has thoroughly captivated the API world, due in no small part to its uniquely expressive API query language. But using it type-safely from Java poses a challenge, as language barriers tend to do. Scott McKinney demonstrates how to reach beyond expectations and provide truly seamless, type-safe GraphQL access from Java.
It’s not every day that a new JVM language is born unto the world, so to celebrate the arrival of Concurnas here’s a complete introduction to the programming language by creator Jason Tatton. Concurnas has modern syntax and features, is open source and has GPU computing built in, which opens up the possibility for machine learning applications. Let’s see what Concurnas can do!
It’s a leap year, so February had even more exciting news and stories to offer than usual. We published the preliminary results to our own Java survey, but had a look at other surveys as well—and Angular 9 was finally released! In February, we also celebrated International Day of Women & Girls in Science.
