JavaFX printing on OS X is horribly broken

"dev" is not what is used to create the promoted builds. That would be 
Even then, the 8u60 backport is marked as fixed in build "team" so you 
are very premature
in testing this unless you want to pull the 8u60 sources and build your 
own and test with that.

Once  "Resolved In Build:team"

looks more like "Resolved In Build:b20" .. or something then you will 
know what to try.

In other words it is team->master->b## and only the latter is useful to 
people who
do not like creating their own buils from source.
