Model Glue 2 - First Public Beta

posted under category: ColdFusion on June 15, 2006 by Nathan

Joe Rinehart just released the first Model-Glue 2 public beta. I think I had to subconsciously shut down part of my brain to cope with the video he released a couple days ago. Amazing. I have been waiting on this release for a long time, and I can't wait to start playing with it. Thanks, Joe!

So, as we all go into framework sugar-shock in the coming weeks, probably leading into the CFUnited conference, prepare to be overwhelmed. I will make sure to post my experiences here, and I hope you all have that special place of your own.

One word of warning though, the download is over 10MB, and over 30MB when decompressed. One has to wonder, so let's take a quick look. As a quick reminder, Model-Glue 2 includes everything you loved from the first one, plus ColdSpring, plus Reactor, plus new features like scaffolding. Each framework has a hefty amount of documentation and sample projects. Over 3600 files in over 300 folders. And most of that is due to Reactor, specifically the Reactor documentation. Looks like there's a few files too many, which is probably just a full export from the Reactor SVN server. I won't complain about too much documentation.

Nathan is a software developer at The Boeing Company in Charleston, SC. He is essentially a big programming nerd. Really, you could say that makes him a nerd among nerds. Aside from making software for the web, he plays with tech toys and likes to think about programming's big picture while speaking at conferences and generally impressing people with massive nerdiness and straight-faced sarcastic humor. Nathan got his programming start writing batch files in DOS. It should go without saying, but these thought and opinions have nothing to do with Boeing in any way.
