The title says it. Thanks to that wonderful human being Steven Benjamin, I've got a much newer CF to play with. We're a couple versions back at work, still, so it's really nice for me to get actually new technology one in a while. Thank you Steven!

Update: New hosting company, making this the third one in a week (1-old host, 2-host that was lame, 3-new, working host).

Nice man! Are there any features that stand out for you from CF11 that are making your life easier?

What do you think so far? We're on CF10 at work and for my personal stuff but I was setting up a dev environment for a friend not long ago and noticed Adobe apparently went ahead and killed the CF10 dev edition download.

Didn't waste any time there so I'm hoping 11 is good!

Fantastic, I've been looking for a CF11 host, which ones have you tried?

First off, I'm happy to see that comments are actually working on the new server. Thanks Brian & Ryan.

Brian, I haven't delved deeply into CF11 yet. I have a reworked version of dopefly.com, rewrote the blog in ORM, due out whenever I get to it, but it was written for CF9, I didn't think I would hold out on releasing it until I hit CF11.

In the CF11 world, I'm mostly excited about new language features that let me do cool and interesting things with fewer lines of code.

The server is my friend Steven's, I'm piggy-backing, and I though the least I could do was thank him publicly. If you ever see him, buy him a drink. The lame host was Hostek. Sorry but it's true, it was awful. The newer better host is Mesia3.net, I believe. Again, that's Steven's thing, I'm just along for the ride! :)
