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!
