Excelsior JET 11 beta 1 Available

We have released the first public beta of Excelsior JET 11 for three platforms: Windows/x86, Linux/x64 and OS X. Future betas and the final release will support 64‑bit Windows and 32‑bit Linux as well.

Highlights

  • Java SE 8 and JavaFX 8 support
  • 99.999% of JCK8 tests passed

Not in this beta

Features planned for version 11 that are not yet ready for beta testing:

  • Startup time improvement technologies in the 64‑bit version
  • JetPackII command-line interface

Known Issues

  • In the Windows version, the JET Setup welcome screen displayed after the installation bears a wrong Java SE version, 7 Update 76, instead of Java SE 8 Update 40. It is safe to proceed.
  • The methods Thread.suspend() and Thread.resume() are not implemented yet. (They have been deprecated since forever, so you should not be using them anyway.)

    Hi, I tried to use this beta version and build a javaFx test program (netbeans sample), but for the test run, i fail to execute.

    Then when i build a exe and start it, it prompt me that the application require a later version of java to run.

    Steps:
    1) open the Excelsior Panel
    2) Choose Plain Java SE Application
    3) Follow the step and do it one by one

    So is there any special steps for build javafx program ?
