JavaFX 19, the latest iteration of the Java-based rich client application platform, has been released, with enhancements for video and CSS capabilities. The update also fixes a number of touch-screen bugs.

The open source platform, which goes by the slogan, “One Framework to Rule Them All,” can be accessed from Maven Central or Announced September 13, JavaFX 19 extends H.265/HVEC (High Efficiency Video Coding) codec support to HTTP Live Streaming.

JavaFX 19 also features faster observable ArrayList creation in FXCollections, and allows users to update an available list of printers with no need to restart the application. Also in the release, support was added for creating derived bindings from ObservableValue with a new API in the ObservableValue interface.

Elsewhere in JavaFX 19, CSS pseudo-classes :focus-visible and :focus-within have been added to support visual focus indication and nested focus visuals, respectively.

In addition, modal behaviour fixes have been made for Stage on the Linux platform while bug fixes related to touch screens have been implemented, such as disappearing scroll bars on touch-enabled devices and a Scroll Pane edge bounce on Raspberry Pi.

Also, dependency upgrades have been made such as upgrading SQLite to version 3.37.2, and Glib to version 2.72.0. For security, better long buffering is offered and WebKit referencing has been improved.

JavaFX became a standalone technology in 2018 after having previously been in the Java Development Kit (JDK). Introduced by Sun Microsystems in May 2007, JavaFX provides a platform for desktop, mobile, and embedded systems built on Java. Libraries and software are available for the complete lifecycle of an application.
