Thank you to everyone that attended Adobe ColdFusion Summit 2016!

Nginx is a high-performance and open-source web server that is widely used in the web community. It can now be configured with ColdFusion 2016. With this post we are making available the prerelease build of the web-server connector for testing purposes.
The prerelese build is in the form of an Linux 64-bit installer that packages the following 2 components:
– The Nginx web server installer. This installer is a variant of the standard Nginx installer that packages the AJP modules that enbable the communication between the webserver and ColdFusion.
– WSconfig.jar. This is a modified version of the library present in ColdFusion's <cf_root>/cfusion/lib directory, that is required by the WSConfig tool when configuring a web server connector.
For detailed instructions on installing the webserver and configuring the connector, refer this document.
We will look forward to your suggestions and feedback.

Revision (09 Jan 2017): The download link for Ngnix Connector source added.
This post is to announce the availability of updates for ColdFusion 2016 and ColdFusion Builder 2016.

ColdFusion Builder 2016 Update 3 includes:
1. Important security fixes
2. Bugs fixes in the areas of Editor and Security Code Analyzer.
3. Upgraded PhoneGap libraries(from version 5.2.0 to version 6.0.0)
4. Dictionary (Code Assist) changes to accommodate the changes/enhancements in ColdFusion 2016 Update 3 and earlier.

Many of you are wondering what happened to RIA Forge, and what the plans are to ensure that content is available to the community.
We're sorry for the lapse that has happened, and we're still working to fix it. Unfortunately it will still take a couple of weeks more for this process because of the way things happened with the domain. However, we do plan on migrating the content to an alternate site soon so we'll update as that comes online.
Additionally, future plans are to make the content available on GitHub. Some of the content is already there, but this will take some time as we contact authors and have the content migrated.
*** Update, riaforge.org is back up and running now ***
Again, we apologize for the inconvenience. We're still planning on transfering the content to GitHub soon.
Also, a big thank you to Charlie Arehart for your help behind the scenes!
ColdFusion 2016 Update 3 early access build is now available for your testing and feedback. It includes support for Windows 10.1 and IBM Websphere Application Server 9 along with approximately 180 bug fixes.
Please note that this is a test build and should not be used in a production environment.
Refer the documents given below for more details on this update:
1. What's New in this update
2. Issues Fixed in this update
3. Installation Instructions
The build number after applying this update should be 2016.0.03.300232.
In case, you have configured local site for receiving the update notifications, then please take back up of the URL before changing it to the pre-release URL.
We will look forward to your valuable feedback and suggestions.
Adobe ColdFusion Summit 2016 just keeps on getting better! We're happy to announce that this year the evening event will be held at RiRa Irish Pub in Mandalay Bay Resort on October 10th.
Please be sure to join us for bites & libations at the RiRa Irish Pub in Mandalay Bay on the evening of October 10th at 5:30pm. Network with our sponsors and enjoy food, drinks and live music all while being served by one of the many servers brought from Ireland to participate in a special training program to progress their hospitality careers.
Come learn how this historic pub from the 1880s has been restored with much of its décor from the original Foley’s pub in Ireland by the Sheehan family who have owned it for generations. The bars, the floors and the architecture all were brought from Ireland to preserve the history of this famous pub.
This will be not only a fun experience to wind down after the full day of learning, but a great opportunity to network with your peers and experience a taste of Ireland!
The event will be held at 5:30pm shortly after the lasts session ends on Day 1 (October 10th).
Don't miss this, hope to see you there!
This post is to announce a new survey titled the Adobe ColdFusion survey – 2016. I request you to take time to provide your valuable feedback via the survey.
The results of the survey will help us validate certain hypothesis we have to build the future versions of the product. We are already in the process of planning for the next version of ColdFusion, codenamed Aether.
Here is the survey link again. Part of the survey result will also be presented at Adobe ColdFusion Summit this year. Thank you for your time.

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!
