The 2010 Vancouver Olympics web site includes a nice little JavaFX Olympics events schedule application that's quite useful for people who like following almost every Olympic sport. Actually, I suppose it's useful even if you follow only a few sports. The application shows you events that are currently in progress or which will start in the next several hours.

In a recent blog post, Geertjan Wielenga shows "How to Create a GUI Editor on the NetBeans Platform": There's a lot of interest in creating GUI editors via the Visual Library. So I'm creating a small example that will show how to do that. The palette is filled with JavaBeans that are registered in the layer, meaning that the editor is extensible via the System FileSystem.
