Upgrade path to ColdFusion (2018 release)

Many of you may already be aware that we are running a pre-release public beta for ColdFusion (2018 release). This post is to give you a heads up that ColdFusion (2018 release), slated to be released in the second half of this year, will only have upgrade pricing available from ColdFusion (2016 release). If you are on ColdFusion 11 or earlier, then you will not be eligible for the upgrade pricing.

  1. To be clear then, if someone has a paid-up license for ColdFusion 11 (which is currently supported by Adobe), they first have to buy an upgrade to ColdFusion 2016 and then buy an upgrade to ColdFusion 2018? Or do they have to buy a full ColdFusion 2018 license all over again?

    • Yes, Carl. Upgrade now while ColdFusion 2016 is being sold and then upgrade to ColdFusion 2018. Or buy the full ColdFusion 2018. Also, this does not apply to anyone who has a maintenance contract for ColdFusion with Adobe.

  2. Rakshith, can you tell folks how they would buy the CF2016 upgrade license? If one visits the CF product page (https://www.adobe.com/products/coldfusion-family.html), the only links offered to “buy” are for full versions of CF Std or Ent. (I thought it used to be that in clicking those, one then saw on the next page an option to choose whether to do an upgrade or full license, but now there is no such choice.)

    So it’s not clear how one, seeing this post, would proceed if they wanted to.

    In the meantime, I will point out to readers that there are of course resellers for CF, and one is the company Intergral, makers of the FusionReactor (the monitor for CF and other CFML and Java servers, at fusion-reactor.com). Their site for CF license purchases is https://www.buy-adobe-software.com, and they DO show upgrade (and full) prices, and of course those are at a discount off the list price.

  3. Thanks, Rakshith. But we must be seeing different results.

    When I click that button (the one in the top right corner), it goes to the checkout page which reports, “you’re buying Adobe ColdFusion Edition (2016 Release)”.

    There is indeed a “type”, “platform”, and “language” field, each saying “full license” “all available platforms”, and “English”, respectively. I cannot change any of them. Only the quantity can be changed (which tells us this is not some JS problem). And again, this is in all browsers I’ve tested: Chrome, FF, Vivaldi, and IE.

    And each of the other “buy now” buttons does at least pick the product for which they are listed. But there seems no way with any of them to change the product, type, platform, or language.

    And of course what we’re talking about here particularly is if someone wanted to change the “type” to “upgrade”. I’m not seeming how they can do it.

    Can you confirm if you see differently? Can anyone else chime in, if reading along?
