1. Greatly enhanced 3D support including (but not limited to) a 3D Canvas.
2. Significantly increased scene graph rendering performance (it may have been done already).
3. Official mobile and embedded support (without having to rely on Gluon etc., even though they are doing a fantastic job).
4. Bring back Scene Builder and add full support for all types of apps including animations etc.
5. Not just WebGL support but proper Chromium adoption instead of WebKit to get full HTML5 compatibility.
6. Greatly expanded media formats supported for video and audio.
7. Professional deployment tool that enables packaging, installation and auto-updates with appropriate look and feel for each major OS and for this deployment kit to be integrated into all major IDEs. This should probably be my number 1.

We are starting to compile our list of what we think is important, but we really want to hear from the community about what their highest priorities are to them. As always, it's important to keep in mind what JavaFX is (e.g. it isn't aiming to be a high-performance game engine), but even still there are bound to be a number of places where people might want to weigh in, for example:
> * New layout containers (e.g. Flexbox)
> * Public APIs for UI control behaviors
> * Marlin renderer enabled by default
> * Support for CSS animations
> * CSS performance improvements
> * TableView improvements (cell spanning, row / column freezing, etc)

> * A JavaFX equivalent of the AWT Desktop APIs
> * Multi-res image API
> * NIO-backed writable images
> If there are other areas of interest that aren't listed here, please start discussing them and we can work together to determine priorities. If all you want to do is add a +1 for one of more of the items above, even that will be very useful.
