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).

Announcing the launch of the newest version of ColdFusion - Adobe ColdFusion (2016 release)

February 15, 2016 / Tridib Roy Chowdhury

  Adobe ColdFusion | Announcements

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.





Pre-release for API Management capabilities in ColdFusion Raijin

January 08, 2016 / Rakshith Naresh

  Adobe ColdFusion | Announcements

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.
