I have raised this topic again a few months ago on this list and the answer
was, no, there are no concrete plans, which is a step back compared to the
interest in the topic that was shown e.g. by a JavaOne presentation with a
(still working) hack to render stuff into a JFX using OpenGL by someone
from the JFX team. In addition to that, the person who was in charge of
that, has left Oracle since, so all evidence unfortunately tells us not to
hold our breath waiting for that to happen.
