Why can Scene's only be constructed on the UI thread?

Hi Tom this is also true for Swing and the EDT. I had heard years ago jre 8 was going to address this via 2 drawing threads and modularity but jigsaw was delayed and not sure what happened to the 2 drawing thread idea. I really wish we could instantiate windows in memory and when needed draw them. The user experience and perception of java would be so much better for the client side. If someone on the java client side knows how to do this I would love to try it to verify it.
Best Regards,

That would be very interesting to try, yes please! Where can I find it? My
project is Java 8 based so that's no problem.
