Stability issue

This should be surprising. Since release 2.14 I've working towards getting rid of Eclipse SWT. It started with Apple stopping the Java development and Oracle taking over - since Java 7 Eclipse SWT wasn't usable on Mac OS X and I guess it will never be. Then Java 7 Update 40 integrated Java FX into all releases of Oracle VMs. Since a while JavaFX is the default on Windows and since 2.23 on Linux, too.

For RouteConverter, Eclipse SWT and DJNative Swing as the library to embed it are a dead end and won't come back.

Changing maps to Eclipse SWT made Routeconverter 100% stable again. I hope Eclipse will return in a next release, or the Java problem be solved...until then no update?
