We have released the first update for ColdFusion 10 today. It fixes quite a number of important/critical issues in ColdFusion 10. This update can be downloaded and installed using the update installer mechanism in the administrator that we introduced in ColdFusion 10. 

Some of the important bugs fixed in this update are

  • Missing CGI.Redirect_* variables (CGI.Redirect_URL)
  • The value of CGI.path_info is an empty string when URL rewrite condition uses {PATH_INFO} in IIS.
  • ORM 2nd level cache does not function when application is restarted after timeout.
  • ExpandPath for custom tags is very slow
  • Can't create recurring scheduled tasks in the Standard Edition.

For more details on this release, please refer to this technote.

 

Please welcome Kishore Balakrishnan, who will be the new Product Marketing Manager for ColdFusion.

Minu has decided to move out of ColdFusion PMM role. She will be transitioning the ColdFusion responsibilities and relationships to Kishore. 

Kishore has been with Adobe for more than 6 years now, performing various roles across multiple Adobe products. Kishore does bring a user level experience of ColdFusion, which is a big plus.

 

Recent releases of ColdFusion are released only for English and Japanese OSes.

However, if your native OS is not in one of these two languages, you can workaround as follows to default to English.

On your native OS(Say French OS) install the ColdFusion server product. The installer will guide you through in English.

Once it is installed if you try to open administrator it will be blank page.

To workaround this stop the server. Then open jvm.config file under <CF_Install_home>cfusion\bin\

Change the java.args value with the English language in this file. Since other languages are not supported you have to force the server to default to English.

The updated line one looks as follows:

-Dcoldfusion.home={application.home} -Duser.language=en

After doing this restart the server. Now if you launch the administrator it will show you up in English.

With the release of ColdFusion 10 and ColdFusion Builder 2.0.1 in May 2012, we have started work on our next versions of ColdFusion Server and ColdFusion Builder. Today, we announced the codenames for these releases at RIACon 2012.

The next version of ColdFusion server will be called Codename Splendor and that of ColdFusion Builder will be called Codename Thunder.

As we build our long term plan and roadmap for these products we have also finalized the codenames for our subsequent releases as well. The subsequent release of ColdFusion server will be called Codename Dazzle and that of ColdFusion Builder will be called Codename Blizzard.

We have some exciting feature themes and product directions planned for these releases and hope to bring them out sooner than our regular cycles. Rakshith, our Product Manager, will be soon announcing the product roadmap …so stay tuned.
