Any software project always has lots of unresolved issues in the issue
tracker, though, especially something as large as a UI toolkit. Qt has
about 15,000 open issues:


Actually 2349 bugs feels suspiciously low to me ..... I suspect it reflects
more that the JFX user community is quite small rather than the true number
of bugs in the product :-)

I certainly encountered a few bugs when writing my own app, but they were
all easy to work around and so far they were all fixed in 8u40. Perhaps my
experience is atypical.

I agree that SB is probably something that can be well maintained by the
community at this point, especially with commercial backing from Gluon.
