plans to make JavaFX 8 platform independent again?

Dear JavaFX team,
over years one of the key features of Java was its platform independence. A Java application would run under Windows, Mac OS, and Linux (if well programmed).
Since https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8146325 this is no longer the case. Once you use the JavaFX Spinner<Integer> component your application will
still work under Windows, but will crash under Linux.
Since this bug attacks a fundamental feature of Java we expected it to be fixed quite fast and definitely in Java 8. But now we discover that it's planned to
be fixed in Java 9 only.
Does this mean that Java 8 is not considered to be platform independent anymore? Do we have to start deploying different jars for different platforms now?
