JavaFX integration?

Both netbeans, natively, and eclipse, through e(fx)clipse have solid support for the JavaFX eco-system, especially SceneBuilder and FXML. In the meanwhile, intelliJ is lagging behind here. There's a plug-in, but it's old and seems to refer to support for the older JavaFX with the special scripting language. I'm actually most interested in using JRubyFXML , which intelliJ would be absolutely perfect for, but for the fact that there's no built in support for FXML or SceneBuilder, or any integration with JavaFX at all. I labelled this a question, so I'll finally get to it, does intelliJ have any plans to provide better integration with JavaFX, especially in light of all the attention its been getting recently? I would really like to see support for this in intelliJ, and would REALLY love to see support for working with jrubyfxml, though I realize this is a farther stretch. I only ask this question because searching turned up nothing very recent, only much older threads, referring instead to the older javafx-script.

Support for code insight/completion/refactoring in FXML is on the roadmap for IntelliJ IDEA 12.1. We don't have any plans to write our own UI designer for JavaFX, but it's possible that some kind of integration with the Oracle SceneBuilder will be provided. We don't have any plans to provide any specific support for JRubyFXML at the moment, but it's quite likely that the existing JRuby and Rake support and the planned FXML support will get you most of what you need for this.
