What should I expect from JavaFX in the 8-ea-b61 release?

I ask because my first test was not promising.  There were many rendering glitches on OS X (10.8.2).

java version "1.7.0_10-ea"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_10-ea-b12)

java version "1.8.0-ea"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0-ea-b61)

As you can see…
-There was garbage left behind as I dragged my node to position it.
-The arrowhead has a glitch. (It is a Region with a SVG path set via the CSS)
-The area with the gears isn't rendering the background colour everywhere it is supposed to.
-The curve in that same corner is positioned one pixel too low so it creeps into the border area.
(The kerning on the text is bad, but it is the same for both)
All of that is in a JFXPanel, if it makes a difference.
