All ColdFusion updates are now signed with the new code signing certificate because of a code signing certificate revocation. This mandatory Update ensures that your current installation of ColdFusion 10 is updated with the new code signing certificate. This update is also required for proper functioning of the auto update functionality in ColdFusion 10. Adobe strongly recommends that you apply this update.

A small but significant change in ColdFusion 10 is around IP address restriction. Till ColdFusion 9, only two fixed IP addresses can access the developer edition of server. But this restriction is changed in ColdFusion 10. ColdFusion 10 developer edition can now be accessed concurrently by any two IP addresses. The restriction is on two concurrent request from any two IP addresses and not on which IP addresses.
