Macromedia listens. Time to upgrade!

posted under category: ColdFusion on April 22, 2005 by Nathan

Despite impending doom and the end of the world, etc., etc., I think this is a great time to upgrade your CF servers.

Yesterday, MM released the 2nd cumulative updater for CFMX 7.0. CF7 has been out for two and a half months with no big showstopping bugs found, just some little things about the new cfreports. Nothing urgent, just something about verity searching. No serious security threats, just something about nested transactions. No loss of performance or server stability issues, just something about web services I'll never use.

Despite those nasty rumors that CFMX7 was built on the same stable engine as CFMX6, I am forced to agree, it is stable and, yes, even production ready. I'll start pushing my superiors for an upgrade.

At least I can still look forward to seeing what hits the fan when the next DataDirect drivers are shipped.

Good job, Macromedia. You guys did a good job...

Macromedia? Adobe? Macrobe? Adobedia? Macrodobia? AdoMacrobedia? Please don't announce Coldfusion CS. CS sounds so weak.

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.
