RichTextFX just got faster

When I started working with JavaFX almost a year ago, there was no native JavaFX code-editing control. Just like any decent programming language hosts its own compiler, I believe any decent UI toolkit should host its own IDE. And you cannot have an IDE without a code editor. It is great that JavaFX allows you to embed HTML and Javascript, but on the other hand, I found it somewhat embarassing that users of the best UI toolkit on the planet had to resort to embedding HTML to get a text editor with syntax highlighting. So I started CodeAreaFX, which evolved to RichTextFX.
