Very nice . The installation is still about the same size (8 MB) and speed of IDE is around the same as before on my old PC.
Thank you Erel.

I'm not sure if that's the same JavaFX and JavaFX Scene Builder? I know that I did the separate installation but before I updated to JRE8...

strange thing is that I have a fresh JRE an 1.8 JDK and I can't find anything with scene in the filename.

their site is also very clumsy to find what you need (it's not in the additional resources part as they wrote) :confused:

The end of the month like you said @Erel, now that's good timing for you.

I'm testing it right now. I love the new look interface, I love the new themes, I love the floating windows, I love the new Icons, sorry but there are too much to mention here. All my B4J projects are working just fine, so that's my beta testing done and dusted.

Keep up the good, no sorry absolutely GREAT WORK.

Cheers...

The first time you start the IDE (after boot) will be slower because of the .Net Framework.

The runtime performance of the new IDE should be better. However it is only noticeable in large projects as the previous IDE has good performance as well.

Scene builder is only used by B4J.

It remains slow (main & designer load) after closing the program and reopening it.

We'll see if others have it aswell, maybe it's something on this box.

Just tried it and my first impression, considering it's a beta -> very good! :)

Just noted two things:
1) when trying to change theme, the IDE does not always reflect the update selected. Sometimes I need to select a new theme and then go back to the one I tried to apply.

2) One thing that I will need to get used to is the new shortcut for commenting and un-commenting :confused:. I am very used and fond of using Ctrl+q and Ctrl+w. However, a toggle shortcut as it is implemented now in the beta is fine too although I wished that the comment/un-comment icon in the menubar would be highlighted/dimmed to indicate the state. BTW, in this regard I noted that the menu-hint indicates Ctrl+' as shortcut but this shortcut does not work for me (with Italian keyboard layout). I finally found the key - see image:
