SwingX pushes toward 1.0, preparing the final(?) pre-1.0 release and a new demo application.
SwingX is preparing to release 0.9.6, our (hopefully) final pre-1.0 release. This release is mainly bug fixes and some API migration. As always, you can view the change notes on our wiki . Those notes should provide detail for migrating from older versions to the latest SwingX. The release will also include some enhancements, such as mnemonic support for task panes and improved rendering for the calendar.
As part of our push to 1.0, we have decided to update our demos. The current demo is available at the swinglabs-demos site . The new demo is based on SwingSet3 , the new Swing demo application that debuted with 6u10. SwingSet3 provides a component demo framework that we are utilizing to develop SwingXSet. SwingXSet (currently only available from CVS ) is a showcase of SwingX components, using SwingX, the Swing Application Framework , and Beans Binding .
If you haven't checked out SwingX in a while, now is a very good time. As always, the SwingX developers can be contacted on the SwingLabs Forums . Hope to see you there!
