In the month of August 2014, we had
refreshed the update 2 just fixing the bugs arised out of Update 2. Ram has blogged

Announcing the launch of ColdFusion 11 and ColdFusion Builder 3

are excited to announce that the next versions of ColdFusion Server and
ColdFusion Builder are now live and available

Thanks to everyone from the ColdFusion community who has
contributed to this release in terms of constant feedback and support. 

Here are some of the highlights of ColdFusion
11 and ColdFusion Builder 3:

Mobile Application Development Workflow

ColdFusion 11 along with ColdFusion Builder 3 gives you a unique
end-to-end workflow for mobile application development addressing the
challenges associated with building, testing, debugging and deploying
enterprise class mobile applications – both web based as well as installed
mobile apps.

Language Enhancements

While there are a range of enhancements made to the language, some of
the features that can be called out are full CFSCRIPT support, support for
Member Functions and JSON enhancements.

PDF Functionality

ColdFusion 11 now leverages a new engine for HTML to PDF
conversion that does an almost perfect job of converting most HTML/CSS to its
corresponding PDFs pixel-to-pixel. Along with the new engine, CFPDF has additional
functionality to support digital signatures and archiving PDFs. 


ColdFusion 11 has a built-in mechanism to prevent access
of Administrator or its components from external access. ColdFusion 11 has
additional built-in functions to prevent XSS, thus allowing  concurrent logins through CFLOGIN. ColdFusion
also supports mail encryption through CFMAIL.

For a more detailed overview of what’s new in ColdFusion 11, take a
look at this
from the documentation.

ColdFusion Builder 3. With one copy of ColdFusion Standard, you get one license

Java 7 Update 55

you may be
aware, Java has come up with an update
(Java 7 Update 55) with critical security fixes. This update was released on 15th of April. ColdFusion 11, ColdFusion 10 and ColdFusion 9 have already been
certified on Java 7 Update 55.

ColdFusion 11, all attempts were made to include this update as part of the
final CF11 installers though this was very close to our launch date. We ran
into an issue with the installer with a third-party platform used by ColdFusion,
on Java 7 Update 55. We have escalated this issue with the vendor and are
working with them for a fix. For now, the Java version bundled with the final
installers of ColdFusion 11 is Java 7 Update 51.

we fully understand the importance of Java 7 Update 55 and want to assure the
ColdFusion community that we are committed to fixing this issue. We are also planning
to replace all the ColdFusion 11 installers to include Java 7 Update 55 as soon
as we are able to obtain a fix from the vendor.

as always you can use Java 7 Update 55 with ColdFusion 11, ColdFusion 10 and
ColdFusion 9 by pointing to an external Java location.

Linux support for the new PDF Engine

Linux support for the new PDF engine in ColdFusion 11 will be available through
an update within the next few weeks.
