Subject Re: [jfxtras-users] Future of the JFXtras Project
Date Thu, 30 Sep 2010 19:36:48 GMT
Exciting developments are happening at Apache Pivot where we just added SVG support this morning
via SVGSalamander. Please feel welcome to have a peek at what Pivot has to offer as we are
also excited about the possibilities of working with JavaFX 2.0 as it becomes available.

writing JavaFX code that will have to be ported in a few months.
