Planning for

Can you dive into what you want to see in TableView? Performance 
improvements, or some particular features?

Btw, I'd love to see someone in the community implement a flexbox 
layout. It seems to be what I hear most about these days.

Finally - have you tested your custom layouts on JDK 9 EA builds? I 
would suspect they don't work quite so well (i.e. I'd be surprised if 
you can still compile) any feedback there about what is missing to 
you would also be very useful.
