Dashboard problems on RC1

Posted by Luis Majano

I just realized that the compilation under cf8 will not work in cf7. Therefore, I will have to alter my compilation scripts to do cf7 and cf8 compilations for the Dashboard. Expect an update for the dashboard in the RC1 package by the end of the weekend. This should be easy to setup so I can deliver a cf8 and cf7 compiled dashboard.

ColdBox 2.5.0 RC 1 updated, please download fix.

I have just updated three critical fixes on the RC1 bits that I forgot to include in my script and on my tests. The fixes encompasses the following:

1) Applications running off a root where not registering the handlers property. This has been solved.

2) The multi-threaded logger for coldfusion 8 and bluedragon 7 has been updated with the correct attributes that where missing.

3) The multi-threaded cache manager for coldfusion 8 and bluedragon7 has been updated with the correct attributes that where missing.

That's it folks, sorry for the excitement. Please give the download a try again.

These errors where reported by Sana Ullah, so thanks so much Sana!! You are always helping out and making ColdBox better.

Enjoy and God Bless.

Upgrading to 2.5.0 Important Notes!

Posted by Luis Majano
11 Nov 2007 12:00 AM
If you are upgrading to 2.5.0 RC 1 from previous versions, please make sure that you use the updated Application.cfc and index.cfm files in the Application Template folder. Application.cfc support has changed a lot of how the framework boots up and it has gotten more solid as the release approaches. However, changes have been made since the first beta of 2.5 and will solidify until the release.

So if you are upgrading, please make sure you upgrade your Application.cfc and index.cfm file templates. 2.5 supports Application.cfm still, however, you must use the index.cfm template to include the /coldbox/system/coldbox.cfm file.


ColdBox 2.5.0 RC 1 is now Online!!

Posted by Luis Majano
10 Nov 2007 12:00 AM
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:

You can find the new RC at the ColdBox Forums:

So go ahead and welcome to a new WORLD!!
