  1. one of the 50+ fixes dates back to 2009 – nice work??
    other bugs have taken over 12 months to fix.

    However the big question – Adobe have publicly stated “Core Support” for ColdFusion 9 until the end of 2013 – where is the ColdFusion 9 update that receives the relevant fixes (64 bit com support, MySQL 5.6 – 2 immediately obvious ones. )

    When have there been any bug fixes for ColdFusion 9? – What exactly does “Core Support” for ColdFusion 9 mean?

  2. I am testing CF 10 with MySQL 5.6, and am having an issue with SUM() being interpreted as binary. The following query doesn’t work:

    SELECT SUM(price) AS total

    This gives me the error:
    “The value [B cannot be converted to a number.”

    If I dump the query, the field shows up as binary.
    If I remove the SUM from “price”, it works fine.

    I can get around it by casting:

    SELECT CAST(SUM(price) AS decimal) AS total

    but this is an ugly hack.

    Please advise. Thanks.

  3. @Aaron: Most of the platform related support will be added only to the latest version, which is ColdFusion 10. But having said that, we continue to proactively release security updates for CF9 and some critical platform updates such as the JDK 7 support for CF9.

    It’s already been four years since CF9 was released. It will just not be possible to provide platform support for every new platform version that may have come out since 2009.

    Using the core support for CF9, you can directly get involved with Adobe support to get relevant fixes for the issues faced for CF9 through an active support contract.

  4. I applied Update 11, ensured the .dll updated to 5/23/2013, restarted the server, and am still getting connection resets. We are running CF 10 (in Developer mode at the moment, when migration is done, it’ll be in Standard) on a virtualized Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 installation on IIS 7.5.

  5. Hi,

    CF10 64 bit update 11: We are seeing the SEVERE error as follows:

    Jul 29, 2013 9:55:44 AM org.apache.catalina.loader.WebappClassLoader checkThreadLocalMapForLeaks
    SEVERE: The web application [/] created a ThreadLocal with key of type [coldfusion.util.DateUtils$1] (value [coldfusion.util.DateUtils$1@55cf32da]) and a value of type [java.util.GregorianCalendar] (value [java.util.GregorianCalendar[time=1375087343164,areFieldsSet=true,areAllFieldsSet=true,lenient=false,zone=sun.util.calendar.ZoneInfo[id=”Europe/London”,offset=0,dstSavings=3600000,useDaylight=true,transitions=242,lastRule=java.util.SimpleTimeZone[id=Europe/London,offset=0,dstSavings=3600000,useDaylight=true,startYear=0,startMode=2,startMonth=2,startDay=-1,startDayOfWeek=1,startTime=3600000,startTimeMode=2,endMode=2,endMonth=9,endDay=-1,endDayOfWeek=1,endTime=3600000,endTimeMode=2]],firstDayOfWeek=1,minimalDaysInFirstWeek=1,ERA=1,YEAR=2013,MONTH=6,WEEK_OF_YEAR=31,WEEK_OF_MONTH=5,DAY_OF_MONTH=29,DAY_OF_YEAR=210,DAY_OF_WEEK=2,DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_MONTH=5,AM_PM=0,HOUR=9,HOUR_OF_DAY=9,MINUTE=42,SECOND=23,MILLISECOND=164,ZONE_OFFSET=0,DST_OFFSET=3600000]]) but failed to remove it when the web application was stopped. Threads are going to be renewed over time to try and avoid a probable memory leak.

    Any ideas on how to solve this?


  6. I installed update 11 accidentally first, circumventing updates 1-10… is this bad? All the other updates were deleted and I cannot install them. Am I going to lose all the fixes within those updates? Please help!
