The OpenJFX project maintains 2 main development repositories. We utilize the "Branching with Clones" method as described in A Guide to Branching in Mercurial by Steve Losh. The "master" repo is the one from which each weekly promoted build is made. You can think of it as the "golden master". The master repository must always be buildable. We never work directly against master. Instead, we have created different team repositories, and developers push their fixes into one of these team repositories. Each week, a team integrator will integrate from the team repository back into master. Thus, a bug fix that finds its way into a team repository will be integrated into master generally each week on Tuesday or Wednesday. Promoted builds from master are then produced and published, generally on Thursdaysthe "-dev" repository.
At present we have only one team "mainline" development repository, the "910-dev" repository. The URL for this repo is listed here:
Naming / History
The following is only for historical interest. There is no longer a separate OpenJFX release. As of JDK 8, we follow the JDK release numbers precisely.
Releases of OpenJFX are based on street names or neighborhoods in San Francisco. This tradition started with JavaFX 1.1 and carries on to this day. The names we have used for releases past, present, and future are listed here.
