The big news out of JavaOne this year was that JavaFX script was not going to be used in the next version of JavaFX, but rather baked into the Java APIs. For application development people, this means that you can just use JavaFX directly in your project, without a separate compiler. I am guessing that this will make data binding easier, and help the adoption rate of Swing application development people. JavaFX 2.0 probably won't be out until next summer. For those of you that already have used and enjoyed JavaFX Script, fear not. The code has been forked and been given a new name: Visage. What's interesting with Visage is that the mission is not only to keep the language alive, but to fix the issues and make it a first class language. Discussions on Visage are going on right now. If you ever wanted to get in on the ground floor of a language, now is definitely the time. Your suggestions and efforts can directly shape a language! I hope to see you on the discussion boards.
