Release candidates for Trident, Flamingo and Substance

I’ve just published the release candidates for the following projects:

Flamingo 5.0 release candidate contains:

  • New scroller panel component
  • New color selector popup
  • Full right-to-left (RTL) support
  • Toggle menu buttons
  • Dock icon for ribbon frame on Mac
  • Dynamic resize of ribbon components

Substance 6.1 release candidate contains:

  • Platform specific keyboard shortcuts
  • New Mariner skin
  • New Office Black 2007 skin
  • Better visual integration in Substance Flamingo plugin for ribbon under all core Substance skins

Trident 1.3 is mainly maintenance release with a few minor API additions to the repaint timelines. Flamingo uses Trident for some of the animations, and you will need to add the latest Trident jar to the classpath. If you’re running your Flamingo-based application under Substance, add the latest Substance Flamingo plugin jar to the classpath for consistent visual appearance and animation effects.

The final releases for all the projects are scheduled for August 9. Only bugs will be fixed until that date.
