fastdebug builds of OpenJDK
OpenJFX Nightly and Stable (8u60) Builds
Builds of OpenJFX 8 for Linux amd64 (Desktop), OSX, x86egl (Monocle), and armv6hf (Raspberry Pi)
My unofficial builds come with no warranty and you should spend a minute thinking about the security implications of using binaries you found on the internet. You are trusting my good nature and the codebase from which these are built!
I don't work for Oracle and have not security audited this code.
Interested in Java performance?
Want to see some JavaFX graphical effects?

After unzipping the overlay you may need to go to jre/bin and make the DLL files executable.

NB my nightly Monocle builds are patched to include javafx.embed.swing packages:

So that you can do things like take node snapshots and save them to files on headless systems:

Need a JDK?
Please note that overlay builds cannot be used with JDK9 onwards
Unzip the download into your JRE/JDK:
unzip <OpenJFX build> -d <Java directory>
e.g. Linux amd64 (Desktop)
unzip openjfx-8-sdk-overlay-linux-amd64.zip -d /home/chris/jdk1.8.0_172
or ARMv6 Hard Float (Raspberry Pi)
unzip openjfx-8-sdk-overlay-linux-armv6hf.zip -d /home/pi/jdk1.8.0_172
or Linux x86egl (Monocle)
unzip openjfx-8-sdk-overlay-linux-x86egl.zip -d /home/chris/jdk1.8.0_172
