Weekly round-up: JavaFX 12 arrived, IntelliJ IDEA 2019 progress report & more
Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week, we welcomed the newest release of JavaFX, the CloudBees team that announces the launch of the Continuous Delivery Foundation and many more!
JavaFX 12 is here!
Just a week before the general availability of Java 12, comes the release of JavaFX 12.
This will be the second major JFX release after it got decoupled from the JDK. Following the new Java release cadence, JavaFX 12 is a short-term support release, meaning that it will only be supported until the next major release, JFX 13. Find out all the details here.
CloudBees launches the Continuous Delivery Foundation
Big news coming over from the CloudBees team that announces the launch of the Continuous Delivery Foundation (CD Foundation or CDF), a foundation that will operate under the umbrella of the Linux Foundation. CloudBees was the leading voice in this launch initiative, but the CDF was realized in collaboration with the Jenkins Community, Google and the Linux Foundation itself.
To learn more about this announcement and what it has in store for the developer community, we invited Kohsuke Kawaguchi, the creator of Jenkins, to give us some insight into the goals of CDF, the details around project donations and more! You can find the full interview here.
