I am please to announce that SwingX has released version 1.6.1.  We hope to have the release uploaded Maven central soon.

Just a quick overview of some of the issues:

  • Added prompt support.
  • Added new Highlighters and HighlighterPredicates and improved the rendering API.
  • Lots of JXDatePicker and JXMonthView improvements.
  • More Mustang sorting improvements.
  • AutoComplete improvements.

As always you can provide feedback on the forums and submit any bug or enchancements on our issue tracker.

Great news

Is there anywhere that gives more details about what's gone into the build, for instance what is prompt support ?

PromptSupport, etc.

The bin release contains a full list of all bugs fixed (over 90), so I don't want to duplicate that here.

In short, PromptSupport is the ability to add prompts to text components.  There prompts can be a combination of text and Painters and have display rules based on focus.  I am working on a blog with examples for that right now.  I hope to have it out in the next day or two.


Great news! When will it be available in the official Maven repository? Stefan

Jan is working on that; he

Jan is working on that; he only told me soon.  I will post an update as soon as I have one.

Swing-worker maven dependency

do you know if swing-worker dependency is mandatory for 1.6 user ? If not, could we add this dependency into a profile auto enabled by jdk version ? Thx Christophe

No backport for 1.6.x

As of SwingX 1.6 it is no longer necessary to use the SwingWorker backport.  That should not be part of the Maven requirements.

Swing X maven + no swing-worker

Fine it's great. What about maven repository ? Why there is this lag time between release announcement and repository availability ? (normally it's just a command line to deploy) I'm an OSS reposiitory user/contributor, if i can provide you some help, don't hesitate. Regards, Christophe.
