My experience has been that there have been many people wanting
different kinds of axes (to be clear, the plural spelling of axis,
JavaFX isn't going medieval), the most popular being date and
logarithmic. If you've developed a DateAxis implementation, that is
great! I would recommend searching the jira for such as issue (I can't
see one in a quick search), and if one doesn't exist file a tweak /
feature request for it. You can attach your patch in the issue by
copy/pasting the code, or if it is long you can email the issue owner
(which will be Paru Somashekar) or myself, and we can attach the patch
to the issue on your behalf.

Concurrently with this, there is a need for you to agree to the Oracle
Contributor Agreement if you haven't already. You can find more
information out here:

The train has well and truly left for JavaFX 8.0, but this could be
considered for a release following that. In the mean time, you might be
interested in publishing the code yourself, either on your blog or into
an open source project such as JFXtras. This is often a great way to
evolve the API whilst it still can be.
