I was trying to go through the process of downloading the source code, and
it seems the directions are a bit out of date.

The specific issue is with the developer preview binary.  The instructions
say to download it and unzip it.
The download link (, goes
to a page where there is nothing that can be downloaded and "unzipped".

Can I use the JDK7 install I already have?  Or do I need to find something


   - Download the latest JavaFX Developer Preview
   - Unzip the binary and put it in ~/closed-jfx
   - [snip]
