    I have a question for Adobe, for the sake of all who may follow these steps and change the URL in the cf admin (update settings page) to the prerelease URL offered here.

    Will those people receive notification of the release of the final update, when it's ready?

    If not, then these steps should end with telling the user to revert back to the original URL, using thr checkbox offered, after they do apply this prerelease update. Otherwise they would not know when the final or indeed any future new update is available, if this special URL points only to this prerelease update.

    @Charlie: As of now, the only way to receive notification of the release of the final update, is by uninstalling the prerelease build.

    On the basis of your feedback earlier, we implemented this enhancement in ColdFusion Raijin, but unfortunately it is not available in ColdFusion 11/10 as of now.

    To make it more clear, I will be updating my post to inform all users.
