I’ve not heard an official word on this from Adobe, but I can report that there are a few features that were “new” in CF2021, whose doc links HAD worked when the release first came out, but now the doc links get a 404.
The implication seems to be that the feature, while still “in” CF currently, is one that’s been put “on hold” for some reason, as if perhaps we should not use them. Maybe they may be removed, or maybe it’s just some temporary problem and a subsequent CF2021 update will fix whatever’s amiss with them (and then Adobe would add back the docs links).
Until there’s official word, I wanted to point these out (for the sake of completeness), as of Dec 15, 2020:
- AWS Lambda/serverless intergration (not only are the docs gone, but so is the download for the serverless zip needed to use it)
- bcrypt and scrypt functions (unlike the serverless feature, these are of course still IN your CF2021 install, just no longer documented for now)
- Has anyone found any others?
Finally, here is at least one more feature which was indicated as new in the prerelease (and is even now listed in the CF docs page on AWS features), but I’ve not been able to find documentation for it:
- Amazon Simple Email Service (SES)
If you may find that these doc links are now “working” as you read this post in weeks/months to come, please let me know (see my site link below, which offers contact info) and I’ll update this accordingly.
