I made some tests already and I have to say it works really well. You can also use custom JavaFX8 controls without any problem. I just saw some problems with complex -fx-shape based paths. The performance improvements are really visible, so Oracle did a good job here.
Because it's based on b97 you can also use lambdas, 3D and even Nashorn should be useable (even if I did not tried yet).

Now it's really useful because you could easily use the same jar of your application and let it run on the Pi without any modification.
