Due to a painting regression in JXPanel for Synth-based Look and Feels, we are releasing a regression fix. The new files should appear in Maven Central soon.

swingx 1.6.5-1 has a problem with Java 1.8.

The JVM class does not know about JVMs > 1.7 and in such a case it assumes that it is java 1.3.
Therefore the JXPanel class installs a special repaint manager obtained from SwingXUtilities.getTranslucentRepaintManager(manager);

In my application this causes endless repaints with Java 1.8.

Can you please add java 1.8 to the JVM class and release a new swingx version?

Thanks a million Karl, for keeping update with this library.
