Scene Builder 16 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.
