Because I wrote question in wrong thread I copied it to a new topic:

Hi Guys,

I've read in last GroovyMag an article about Griffon, and the author mentioned new feature in Griffon called 'Addons'

Does this book cover this new tasty bit and describe differences between Addons and Plugins ?

Another question that comes to my head, does Griffon support and use JavaFX ?

Many thanks

Yes. Chapter 11 "Plugin Development" will cover both plugins and addons.
Griffon supports JavaFX to a certain extent due to:
- mixing Swing and JavaFX with 100% fidelity and with bidirectional communication is not yet possible.
- distributing the runtime jars is forbidden by the license. you're restricted to building applications in webstart and applet modes.

I agree. Here's the link:
