I guess 2009 will be a very important year for JavaFX to get rolling faster. Most important milestones for this year:
- JavaFX for Solaris and Linux (no news on this since about 2 months on this, link).
- JavaFX 1.1 with the first version of JavaFX Mobile (planned to be released in February at Mobile World Congress, link)
- JavaFX 2.0 (at JavaOne 2009?)
You noticed there are hardly (new) books on JavaFX ? I guess publishers want to avoid sitting on books like Silverlight 1.0 which is pretty useless once newer version were released. Some titles are announced for mid year release.
