The installers for ColdFusion (2016 release) and ColdFusion Builder (2016 release) have been refreshed. The only change between the old and new installers is the refresh of certain branding assets (no change in the underlying code).
The new build number for ColdFusion (2016 release) is 298074 (was 297996 earlier) and for ColdFusion Builder (2016 release) is 298077 (was 298004 earlier). Some, if not all, branding assets refresh will also be fixed as a part of the first update so that users on previous installation get the latest branding assets.

Last year was the 20th year of ColdFusion and thanks to the enthusiastic participation of the customers it was a great hit. The celebrations culminated at the ColdFusion Summit 2015 which was the largest ColdFusion Summit we had till date.
2016 promises to be great year for ColdFusion with the new release. Some of the activities that we are planning on doing this year are:
1. ColdFusion Champions – We are creating a CF Champions team which would help us with community building, helping us with blogs and some technical articles. We already have Dave Ferguson, Dave Epler and Kev McCabe signed on. Look out for articles from them. If you are interested in joining the Champions team please reach out to me. This team would also help in promoting ColdFusion in some of the developer conferences. This is one of our efforts to rebuild the developer evangelist ecosystem so would appreciate all the help we could get.
2. User Groups – The ColdFusion user group managers have done an awesome job of helping us to keep in touch with our Developer base. UGMs like Dan Fredericks, Giancarlo to name a few have put in a lot of effort in making their groups meet regularly. We would continue to support the User Groups, if you want to create a new User Group in your area or want to find if there are any User Groups are there in your area, let us know we would help you.
3. E-Seminar and Technical articles – We would be having a Developer week in April first week which would talk about the new features of ColdFusion. This would be followed by a technical e-Seminar once every month. I would follow up on the time slot for the meeting very soon. If the community wants to contribute to the Technical articles or blogs on Adobe.com please reach out to me, Elishia or Rakshith. We would love to have you write about ColdFusion and would promote the articles so that it reaches out to our developers.
4. ColdFusion Summit – Last year we had around 500+ attendees for the ColdFusion Summit. This is one of the largest developer events at Adobe. This year the Summit would be held at Mandalay Bay on October 10th – 11th. The pricing for the event would be the same as last year. We hope to see a large participation this year since 95% have rated the quality of session content as above average and 93% have said that they are very likely to recommend this event to their peers.
5. ColdFusion Government Summit – Since most of our Government customers were not able to travel to Vegas we are having an one-day ColdFusion Summit for Government on March 9th in Washington DC at Washington Hiltion . We are also planning on having an event at our India office for the ColdFusion customers in India in Q3.
6. Sponsorships – We would be at our usual events like NC Dev con and CF Camp this year. We are also looking at other events where we could meet the decision makers and prospective new developers, so the list of events that we sponsor might increase.
7. Customer Outreach – We have been having 1:1 discussion with some of our large customers to let them know about what are the features in the new version of ColdFusion and working with them in case they have any issues. If you want us to have the Roadmap discussion with your organization please let us know.
These are some of the activities that have been planned for this year. If you have any other ideas about how best to increase ColdFusion presence do reach out to me Kishore@adobe.com

I am pleased to announce that we have just launched the new version of ColdFusion, Adobe ColdFusion (2016 release). It was not long ago that I communicated to you via a blog post on how ColdFusion has had a profound impact of web application development over the last two decades when we celebrated twenty years of Adobe ColdFusion.
Today we continue to make that impact adding ColdFusion (2016 release) to the list of releases.
The highlights of the release are,
1. Our Enterprise customers get a built-in security code analyzer that can scan your existing and new CFML based applications to identify security vulnerabilities with details such as criticality of the vulnerability and potential ways to mitigate the vulnerability.
2. Performance improvements to ColdFusion runtime - Your existing applications can run up to 30% faster, thanks to performance improvements that can be leveraged out-of-the-box and new performance improvements introduced which need a few changes to application settings to run the applications faster. We will also be releasing a performance white paper that will detail the performance improvements.
3. PDF improvements - We now add capabilities to redact and sanitize PDF files programmatically giving you the confidence to securely share PDFs to an external audience. There are other PDF enhancements such as updated archiving format support and extracting & applying PDF metadata.
4. And finally, as a part of ColdFusion Enterprise, the all new API manager component that has everything to quickly move your APIs from concept to production. API manager will take care of securing, managing, monitoring and enforcing SLAs on both REST and SOAP APIs. Though this is a new component introduced, the API manager is extremely powerful and yet very easy to use. API manager supports high scalability with very low latency to give you the confidence to successfully implement enterprise-class API strategy with ease. We will also have a white paper with details on high scalability and low latency for this new component.
I am confident that this new release of Adobe ColdFusion will get you as excited as we are about this new release.
As always, we owe all our success to our customers and ColdFusion developers and thank them for the continued investment in ColdFusion.

Organizations today are unlocking the value of their data, IP and services by sharing the same with their ecosystem(customers, internal teams, partners, vendors, suppliers etc.) at a furious pace– often over the mobile networks. With Raijin we now add the capability to not just build and share REST/SOAP services easily we will now allow you to manage, monitor, regulate and secure these services easily.
Our research shows, once a API is written, the next questions, that a company or organization has to answer before making the API production ready are:
1. Who do I give access to APIs?
2. How do I control the access to these APIs? For instance how do I restrict the usage of certain APIs to a selected few? Even within an API how do I provide granular control over the methods available in an API?
3. How do I let developers wanting to use my APIs understand the APIs that I have exposed and test them out before writing applications to consume these APIs?
4. How do I monetize the APIs by creating various access plans and associating end developers to a particular plan based on their subscription?
5. How do I track the usage of APIs so that I align backend to the demand and also gain insights to how my end developers are using the APIs?
6. How do I track and manage various versions of the APIs I create?
7. How do I transform my legacy APIs into newer RESTful services with all the best practices associated while still maintaining the usage of the legacy API?
With Raijin, we are introducing an API manager that can accomplish all of the above and more.
If you are interested in trying out the API manager with the REST or SOAP based APIs that you have, then please reach out to us at CFPrerelease@adobe.com so that we can add you the pre-release for API manager component in Raijin.
We look forward to your participation.
