Hi Mike,

Awesome! I'll check it out.

I'm not sure how your versioning scheme works. Does 8u20 mean it will be
released 20 weeks after the original Java 8.0 or something? When is it
expected to go stable?

Hi Mike,

Take a look at the packager in the 8u20 EA builds, it’s significantly
improved over the original FX Packager.

We are looking right now at what features we’ll do for the next feature
update for JDK 8 after 8u20.  I believe icon support should already be
there in the original FX Packager, and certainly in the 8u20 version.  File
associations are coming in a future update, certainly very high on the list
of features we want to address.

I've been looking around for the best way to distribute my app.
Javafxpackager is a big leap over what Java provided before (nothing) but
it's still pretty basic. I'm wondering if there's a plan or roadmap for
improving it. For instance I made a Mac DMG (it works, yay!) but I had to
manually replace the default icon file: there's apparently no way to
that. Also, no support for configuring file associations etc.

It looks like to get something sophisticated like the Scene Builder
packaging still requires a lot of platform specific work.
