I have accelerated development on the framework and I have gone to RC 1. Please test this build as the next is the final release. The only feature still missing is SES support which development has started today. This build includes event and view caching and the guides on how to use these features are already located on the wiki.
The most significant new features are event caching, view caching, folder layout combinations where a folder can be declared with a layout and all views will inherit the current folder layout, more interception, finalized coldbox proxy for Flex/Air integrations, more samples and caching updates. There have been numerous updates to the internal core to stabilize it and actually make it faster. Tons of fixes and updates.
Another big surprise on this build is that new features from ColdFusion 8 and BlueDragon 7 are in place. The framework detects its CFML engine and actually assembles itself accordingly. So now, the ColdBox cache is multi threaded and the logger plugin is also multi threaded.
You can find the release notes for this update at the following location:

So go ahead and welcome to a new WORLD!!
