We don't have plans to make soft float builds of JDK 8 available on java.net.

However we do plan to provide instructions on how to build OpenJFX for ARM for the BeagleBoard, PI and other platforms.

We need to document the OS and SDK setup needed for the beagle which is significantly more complicated than it is for the PI, and you will need to wait just a bit longer before a work in progress change to support fonts properly in OpenJFX is in place.

We hope to finish documenting how to perform an OpenJFX PI build really soon now, as it is really, really close. We will announce when it is ready.
