JavaFX 2.0 Is Here!

We are cooking new tutorials all based on the new JavaFX 2.0 version that was just released.  Oracle has released JavaFX 2.0 as the new direction for JavaFX.  Unlike the 1.x version created by Sun Microsystems, JavaFX 2.0 API's have been rewritten as pure Java code.  You no longer have to learn a new scripting language (if you are still looking for materials for JavaFX 1.x, click here).
