JSR 296 “Swing Application Framework” has been launched.
Two personnal comments:
– it needs to play well with existing Swing RCPs, window managers, bindings, actions, and all sorts of frameworks.
– Hans Muller is a fairly senior Swing architect (always great reading his very well-written blog) and I’m confident he’ll recruit the right persons (he has already probably started) and as no surprise, Ben Galbraith is already there (heck, even Hani says “go”).
More at JavaOne I’m pretty sure.
