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!

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.
