The participants showed a lot of interest in ensuring that they give maximum feedback to the product team. This just goes on to the show passion that you have for the product. Thanks to each and everyone one of you who participated in the pre-release program for ColdFusion 10. The product team values every contribution that was made. We will look forward to your contributions as we move towards building the next major version of ColdFusion.

  1. @Sven: irrespective of whether Ray is an Adobe employee or not, he was absolutely *gold* on the CF & CFB Pre-release programmes, and deserves the recognition.

  2. Thanks anyway guys, I just can’t be productive with ColdFusion Builder. Feel free to give the license away to anyone else in the community who thinks they can put it to use though. Great job on CF 10.

  3. What’s up with CF builder updates? We haven’t had any fixes for nearly a year. Juno has been out for nine months and is not supported at all. Kepler is going to be out in three months putting us two full versions behind if we want an “all in one IDE.”

  4. @Justin: ColdFusion Builder had a free update that went out along with CF10, called the CFB 2.0.1. Here’s an article that talks about what’s new in CFB 2.0.1: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/coldfusion/articles/cfbuilder201-whatsnew.html

    As you can see, CFB 2.0.1 is on Eclipse 3.7.2, which is the the Eclipse Indigo. Juno got released last year after CF10 was released. The next update to CFB will have the latest Eclipse embedded in it.

  5. Rakshith,

    I understand, but the release cycle is simply too long. Maybe you’ve just determined that this isn’t the case for standalone users? I don’t need a brand new house every two years, I really need minor upgrades which fix bugs and follow the Eclipse release cycle at least in a reasonable amount of time. Juno was in release candidate in January 2012? It’s fine to hold new features until the CF major release, but holding back major bug fixes and IDE integration changes just gives the brand a bad name.

  6. @Justin agree. I think it’s also the case that we’ve all become accustomed to software vendors being a bit more proactive / timely with updates & patching & stuff. How often does Flash player get patched? Java? Firefox? Chrome? Windows? (and probably MacOS & Linux for that matter) *all the time*. Not once every two years.

    I think Adobe have become disconnected from what people expect these days.
