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, developers push their fixes into the "-dev" repository.We have has one "mainline" development repository on GitHub, the "jfx-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 For JDK 8 through JDK 10, including all update releases, we follow the JDK release numbers precisely. For OpenJFX 11 and later, JavaFX is no longer bundled, but matches the JDK numbering.
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.
Some have questioned, why bother with release names, why not just stick with numbers? Long story short, it is so that when release numbers change on us, we don't have to adjust everything in the project (such as tags in JIRA).
