Want to try the next version of ColdFusion?

This post is more than 2 years old.

Over on the official ColdFusion blog, they've announced a survey for people interested in trying out the next version of ColdFusion ("Splendor") and ColdFusion Builder ("Thunder"). I still say these sound like 1980s X-Men but what do I know. Sign up now!

Pre-Release for ColdFusion Splendor

Ray, is Adobe publishing a roadmap for future releases? I'm curious to know what enhancements are being planned.

I don't remember if we published this, but I know we've spoken about the future at conferences.

Ahah - I was wrong. We did publish it - PDF link - http://blogs.coldfusion.com...

And "Splendor" sounds like a particularly *effeminate* 80s X-Man.

Still: what a "code name" (snigger: I love the IT industry sometimes... we have *code names*) happens to be doesn't impact the project at all, I guess.

Except over-exercising my cringe reflex.

Cool Ray, thanks. Would be nice to get a advanced look at this new CF. Hopefully some new cool tags to work with on the new version. Do not use the Builder though. Write code from scratch everyday.

You say you "write code from scratch", but you know CFBuilder isn't a WYSIWYG type editor, right? It is all about the hand coding.

Had not clue of that, as oddly as that may seem considering how long I have been programming with CF - not once have I bothered nor had the time to research the CF Builder. I use good old DW for it all... Got a fee copy of it you can send me? :)

Side note: It would be great to be where you are located since my daughter lives down there, well down there from up here. I could attend the seminars in person as well. But hey there is always the Internet.

Ty, CFB has a free version and a trial as well. There is no harm in trying it out.

Your daughter is in Lafayette? What does she do? Anything in tech?

Can not say she is into tech to much. I know you did not know her age. She is a turn of the century girl. She just turned 13 on the 16th. of this month. I know she likes the computer and has her own mobile right now, but it is monitored very closely. Not to sure how far away from you she is located. Somewhere named Pineville.

Will check out the CF Builder if you think it is worthwhile, just DW lets me create my templates and code all in one, plus the easy FTP'ing. If I can not do all of that with it, not much use for it.

Ah, north of me. Let me know what you think of CFB.

Let's hope that Adobe doesn't pull resources away from fixing the outstanding bugs in ColdFusion 10 just to get a new version on the market. If they keep their customers happy they will have customers for life.
