Also, can we assume work is underway to get updated Docker containers for 2016 and 2018 (https://bintray.com/eaps/coldfusion/cf%3Acoldfusion)?

Great, thanks. Having these as soon as possible can help those who use them to test the updates against their app.

For those not yet considering that as an option, I will be doing a talk at CF Summit in Oct on the topic of getting started with the Adobe CF docker images. (I plan to do some blog posts before that as well, for those who may not be attending the conference.)

Great to see the many fixes. That said, I am very surprised to see an update for CF11, after we had been told (and many of us have repeated to folks) that there would be no more updates to CF11 after its public support ended in April.

I see no elaboration on this here or in the technote for its update 19. Of course, it’s appreciated, especially given the security update included (and some bug fixes).

But can anyone from Adobe clarify things, about this update 19 and going forward about CF11?

Charlie,

Update 19 is the final update of CF 11. CF 11 is now out of core support. Check the EOL matrix, https://helpx.adobe.com/support/programs/eol-matrix.html#CD

We’d put this as a note in the CF 11 updates page, https://helpx.adobe.com/coldfusion/kb/coldfusion-11-updates.html

Thanks, but you’re simply repeating/pointing to what was known (that support was supposed to end in April), not helping us know why this one came out anyway. But ok, the conclusion is that this really is the last one.
