  1. Known issues section is appalling e.g.

    “issue with unicode in SQl Server 2014”
    What does this mean ? It doesn’t work ? Silent corruption ?

    “Signature change”
    Are you saying if I don’t manually clear cfclasses something will break ? CF should be doing this low level stuff for me !

  2. Yep, thanks Adobe. Especially after the challenges some had with CF10 Update 14, it’s a great idea to give interested folks the chance to test out the update before it would just start showing up in the CF Admin of those who may not be paying attention to this opportunity.

    I realize some might assert that you (Adobe) should “just more thoroughly test things”, but there are so many different permutations of configurations folks could have. I said the same (and more) in a blog entry pointing out this prerelease update (

    It would just be wise for folks to test things for themselves, and to provide feedback ASAP. And watch this blog’s comments, of course! 🙂 Let’s hope it may go smoothly for all concerned.

  3. @Tom: It is not a blocker because it turn out to be an issue only with one testing machine. It is working fine now.

    I was using this test to insert ‘ñ’ character into the table.



    I will be removing this bug from the release notes document.


  4. @Nimit Sharma ah ha – that sort of bug 🙂 What did you change to stop it happening on that machine though ? just something inside the DataDirect bundle you use ?

  5. @Nimit if they’re “known issues”… any chance of letting us *know* the ticket numbers for them? (both here, and revise the doc).

    And shouldn’t the “known issues” include every single bug you know about that impacts CF11 and haven’t done anything about about? Those are, after all, all the issues you know about.
