  1. Great news, Rakshith! I posted a CFDocument / Java 7 bug a while back but can’t find it in the bugtrackers now, so I’ll ask here: With CF9 on Java 7, if I use textarea within CFDocument, with format=”pdf”, I get an error (I can provide all details if you need it). Do you know if this has been fixed? Thanks.

  2. WE can only hope that this update finally fixes ColdFusion 9.0.1 for OS X Lion. But today OSX Mountian Lio (10.8) was released. Any word on support for CF 9.0.1 and up on Mountain Lion?

  3. @Bob: We will have an update coming before Java 6 is EOLed in November. I will also make a blog entry to announce the availability of the Java 7 support.
