It makes me very happy to join with everyone else here at Adobe in announcing ColdFusion 9 is now available.
It’s been about 2 years in the making. Having seen it from the other side, I am in awe of the hard work and dedication the development team puts in. They put in crazy hours, and put out a product that is unbelievable. Here’s what they added:
- Advanced Caching
- SharePoint Integration
- Java Portal Integration
Major reworking of Components
- Performance Boost
- Automatic Getters and Setters
- Local Scope
- Cfscript Enhancement
- CFML Enhancements
- New Search Engine
- ColdFusion as a Service
- Supercharged Flash Remoting
Oh yeah, and while they did that, they also created ColdFusion Builder a 1.0 product. Which reminds me, ColdFusion Builder Public Beta 2 is now out too.
On top of our developers, the beta testers have been amazing. Perhaps that was why our developers worked so hard, but they need to be acknowledged. The beta testers were banging away on Centaur pretty much from day one 24 hours a day. Their input heavily shaped the final outcome. It could not be done without them.
ColdFusion 9 is impressive, and it’s out. I’m excited. Our customers are excited. Our community is excited. Our developers are exhausted, but excited.
Now get out there and start using it, and don’t be quiet about it.
