Oracle stated that they won't release new binaries for SceneBuilder, but
since the code is open-source and BSD licensed, third parties and the Java
Community in general can create binaries based on the SceneBuilder sources.
This is what we did at Gluon (http://gluonhq.com), and the result can be
downloaded at http://gluonhq.com/products/downloads/
This download is based on the latest 8u40 source code in OpenJFX. It
includes the 8u40 Controls (e.g. Spinner, Dialogs).

Hope this is helpful.
