As you are probably aware, we are in the planning stage for the next version of ColdFusion. You may have already seen a blog post asking you to submit your wishlist for the next version.
This post is about a survey that will give Adobe valuable information about your usage of ColdFusion. Please take a few minutes to take this survey and provide your feedback. The data from the survey will be used to validate a set of hypothesis about the usage of ColdFusion. This will eventually help us build a great next version of ColdFusion, codenamed Aether.
Thank you for your valuable time. Here is the survey link again.
As you are probably aware, with each version of ColdFusion, security is at the top of the priority list. With the latest release of ColdFusion, it is not just the security related features. Emphasis was laid on the inherent security of the ColdFusion platform by itself. To validate this, the PSIRT (Product Security Incident Response Team) at Adobe helped arrange a third party security audit for ColdFusion. The audit did come up with a few findings. Our Product engineers did an excellent job of mitigating all the findings to the fullest.
To validate the above claim, we now have a public facing security report, from the agency that performed the security audit, indicating that 100% of all findings have been mitigated. Here is the public facing report with all the details. You can also view the link to this security audit report under datasheets and whitepapers section of the ColdFusion product home page on the Adobe website.
Here is a way to let us know your wishlist for the future versions of ColdFusion. The process is really simple.
1. Log into the public bug tracker https://bugbase.adobe.com
2. Click on Add Bug.
3. Choose ColdFusion as the product and version as 2016. Remember, the version to be selected is 2016.
4. Select product area as wishlist and submit your list in the bug description.
That's it! We would love to hear your thoughts on what you would like to see as a part of upcoming versions.
Call for speakers is now open for Adobe ColdFusion Summit 2016!
From now until May 20th, feel free to submit any topics you would like us to consider. We're always looking for new speakers, with a focus on practical application of ColdFusion in solving real world business solutions. So if you're a developer who has leveraged ColdFusion to build a great application or you have an interesting use case we would love you to present that at this year's Summit!
We're also looking for speakers that have knowledge of ColdFusion in specific functionality areas or integrated solutions that can share this through practical examples that would benefit the developer community.
Please submit your proposals here: http://cfsummit.speakerform.com
Remember to submit by May 20th in order to be considered.
For all confirmed speakers, conference pass and hotel will be covered for the conference dates.
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.
