- Binding API: Well, OK, yet another one. Here is hoping that it will not be too cumbersome and find broad acceptance. The API will include observable collections (which are handy for GUI lists and tables).
- Media framework: for audio and video. About time.
- HTML5 support: parsing and display. Also desperately needed in Swing (SWT already has reasonable HTML display support).
- New table control: Apart from better looks, combining it with observable collections should get one the comfort offered by Glazed Lists.
- New rich text control.
