New Scene Builder 15 release

Scene Builder is a very popular drag & drop user interface designer tool for JavaFX. It allows for rapid iteration and separation of design and logic for team members to quickly and easily focus on their specific layer of application development. With over 1.5 million downloads since Gluon started distributing it in 2015, Scene Builder clearly is a widely used tool.

Version 15


We would like to present the brand new release for Gluon Scene Builder: Scene Builder 15. The new Scene Builder comes with an option to disable menu accordion animation. It also comes with enhancements to ColorPicker due to the ability to store Color as an object instead of its web string representation. It also has a small performance improvement. A complete list of changes can be found in the Scene Builder change log.

Scene Builder version 15 also marks the start of new series of Scene Builder releases. We intend to release Scene Builder at least with every major Java/JavaFX release, to benefit from the latest runtime changes.


Scene Builder is open source and available on GitHub.
