    Virtual Foojay OpenJDK 17+ JUG Tour

    To celebrate OpenJDK 17 and Foojay.io as a community platform for its users, we’re kicking off the Virtual Foojay OpenJDK 17+ JUG Tour.

    Ari Waller, JFrog’s Event Manager, well known to many JUGs, will continue to wear a second hat—that of Foojay Event Manager.

    During September and October, contributors to Foojay will be making a whistle stop tour through as many JUGs as possible, via their virtual meetups! (And if you’re not holding virtual events or don’t have the facilities for this, we can support by making these available as needed.)

  • FXGL Game Engine 11.17 Release

    The FXGL game engine is now at 11.17. Most of the changes in this release focus on internal code quality and fixes.

    2. Rotation and scale in 3D now support origin points (pivot points). This is a beneficial addition since some animations will need specific origin points for transformations to achieve the desired effect.
