    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. Rakshith Naresh
    Marc, just heard from Engineering that the issue you reported has been fixed.

    Great. Thanks!

    For those of us that cannot upgrade to 9.02, will there be a simple way to update 9.01 or will this update be the same for both?
  5. Rakshith Naresh
    Steve, It will be the same update for both CF 9.0.1 and CF 9.0.2.

    Thanks you.

    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?

    Any updates on this? Java 6 is EOL in November I believe...
  9. Rakshith Naresh
    @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.

    Is this available yet? If so, what is the link for the update?
  11. Evert
    I suppose this update might be pushed back since Java 6 will not be EOLed in november?
  12. Rakshith Naresh
    Nancy, Evert - I have updated the blog post. The update with support for Java 7 will be made available before the Java 6 EOL now happening in February, 2013.
