Build farm for OpenJFX (on ARM)

Hi All,

As per Chris's message and the tweet I got last night / this morning I'm
updating you (which I was intending to do when the time was right), that we
now have a successful OpenJFX build on Cloudbees, see

Our build farm is able to build an updated artefact each day. Currently its
a Linux build, the ARM build is on its way, an issue with a dependency has
hindered us, but once that is also successful you will be able to download
both these binaries from the above Cloudbees location.

I'll add to what Chris has mentioned, I was not aware of another initiative
to build OpenJFX binaries and ours is to not duplicate the effort but make
such opensource binaries related to OpenJDK available to everyone in the

We need all the help you can give us. As you can see from the list on the
cloud farm, something or the other always needs to be attended to.
