JavaFX 15 亮点

A couple of weeks ago, JavaFX version 15 was released. We’ve tailored down some of the most exciting parts of the release in this document.

Exciting features:

  • JavaFX now has 3D support for the newer Intel graphics drivers on Linux
  • Support for e-paper displays on i.MX6 devices was added
  • FX scripting support was enhanced


  • Better native keyboard handling and integration on iOS and Android
  • Adjusted font size in JavaFX apps with enabled Monocle on Raspberry Pi
  • Capped the refresh rate on iOS (to a maximum of 30 Hz)

Removal and Clean up:

  • The JavaBeanXxxPropertyBuilders constructors were removed
  • The deprecated finalize() methods from JavaFX property objects were removed
  • Some unnecessary logging, e.g. for pinch gestures on iOS, is now skipped

In the bug fix department, you’ll find, among others:

  • A fix for the SVG patterns that were drawn incorrectly
  • A solution for some inconsistencies with controls, such as:
    • The incorrect arrow key traversal through tabs after reordering the tabs in a TabPane
    • The lost formatting when using Ctrl-A in HTMLEditor
    • The wrong Scrollbar position on touch supported devices
  • A fix for memory leaks, e.g. in the ProgressIndicator class, in the ToggleButton.setToggleGroup() method, and in some other places
  • Better code hygiene to avoid exceptions such as:
    • An IndexOutOfBoundsException when requesting focus on an empty bar
    • A StringOutOfBoundsException when adding a ChangeListener to TextField.selectedTextProperty()
    • Possible NullPointerExceptions in TabPaneSkin.performDrag(), in the MenuButtonSkinBase change listener, and while entering empty submenu with “arrow right”

Finally, these are some dependency upgrades in JavaFX 15:

  • Upgraded libFFI to version 3.3
  • Upgraded SQLite to version 3.32.3
  • Upgraded WebKit to version 609.1
  • Upgraded libxml2 to version 2.9.10
