We acknowledged at CFSummit that we need to move the needle when it comes to bug fixes in the product. Just as we had announced, we are making improvements in this axis.
Here are some of the highlights so far.
A total of 423 legacy bugs (legacy bugs are those that were reported in previous versions starting from ColdFusion 11) were resolved as a part of the release.
A total of 95 external bugs were fixed in just update 1 and update 2 for ColdFusion 2016. More details about what fixes went in update 2 can be found in this post.
The average age for bugs to be verified by the product team from the time it is logged in the system is now down to 4 days. This was around 35 days during the ColdFusion 11 timeframe. This gives you a good sense of comparison between where we were and where we are headed towards.
Also, the upcoming update 3 promises to be an even significant update in terms of bug fixes when compared to update 1 and update 2. Stay tuned to hear about the upcoming update.
I want to leave you with the message that we are monitoring our improvements in this space very closely. You will hear more details about our overall improvements to bug fixes at CFSummit this year. We look forward to seeing you there!

We had to close registrations for the Preconference full day Security Workshop happening on October 9th. Hopefully you have already signed up if you wanted to join that hands-on lab.
We still have a few seats left in the API Workshop. As a reminder, below is the topic description. Please register today if you would like to attend, as this workshop will likely sell out soon as well.
There are only a handful of seats available for our preconference workshops on API and Security topics, so we will be closing registration very soon due to capacity limitations. Please register today if you haven't yet!
As a reminder, these workshops are full day hands-on labs so it's a great learning opportunity for your teams. Below is a summary of the workshop descriptions:
Developing and Managing APIs with Adobe ColdFusion API Manager
This full day preconference lab will cover API development with a focus on REST based APIs. It will include an overview of Adobe ColdFusion API Manager and walk through configuration of the environment, and various features available to create and manage APIs.
This full day hands-on training session will focus entirely on the topic of security as it relates to web developers, reviewing examples of how vulnerabilities are exploited and how to mitigate these vulnerabilities within your code.
Both of these full day preconference labs will have prerequisites and will require students to bring their own laptops for use. Further details on what will be covered and prerequisite information will be provided soon.
