New version of SwingX library have been released. From this version on, SwingX requires at least Java 6 to function properly.
It's already five months since the version 1.0 have been announced at JavaOne. Today, new version of the SwingX have been released.
This release is first Java 6 only compatible release. Setting base line to Java 6 allowed us to drop all the extra code necessary to maintain backwards compatibility for functionality added to the cora Javasince the release of Java 5. So as of today, you can benefit cleaner and leaner code behind API of various SwingX components, such as searching and filtering APIs of
JXList and other components. Moving to Java 6, you now also get the full Nimbus LAF support.
To keep it short:
As always, thank you for your continuing interest in the project.
Enjoy the release.
