Hello,

I'd like to know if the current version of JavaFX are stable now.
I remember the first time I saw it people said it was not recommended to use it on production projects.

Thank you.

Given that there has not been a formal release yet, I think it's fair to say that production use is still discouraged.

There's always something to be said for being first to market!

Interpreted JavaFX Script, which the book is based upon, is quite stable (it hasn't changed since the book was written, and it also runs in a stable manner). For example, here's an example (Word Search Puzzle Builder) from the book, which includes a JNLP link so that you can run it:

Compiled JavaFX Script is still in flux. I only use it for prototyping and creating utilities at this point. Based upon the progress that I've observed in the development of the JavaFX Script Compiler, I anticipate that a 1.0 release will happen in Q3 of 2008, at which point I'll begin writing production applications with compiled JavaFX Script.
