Which is the greatest ColdFusion framework?

April 12, 2008 ·

That's a question that crops up over and over again. I've blogged about it in the past. My answer - as I'm sure most folks would expect - is "it depends". The question came up on a mailing list again the other day and someone jumped in full of praise for ColdBox and then someone else said "Sean would say it depends" and went on to plug cf.Objective() as the "perfect place" to answer the question, wishing they could be there. Here's what I said in response:

Fusebox 5.5.1 is available

March 08, 2008 ·

Fusebox 5.5.1 is a minor bug fix release and is now available for download from the Fusebox website. You can read a PDF of the Release Notes from the docs directory in the Subversion repository. If you're using the new no-XML style of Fusebox development, introduced in Fusebox 5.5, you should upgrade to Fusebox 5.5.1 as soon as possible. If you're using the traditional XML approach, you should read the Release Notes and decide how important this upgrade is for you.

Fusebox 5.5 core files updated

December 15, 2007 ·

Thanx to an eagle-eyed user who noticed that the Fusebox 5.5 core files ZIP omitted the standard error templates directory! The core files ZIP has been updated on the Fusebox website. This won't affect many people because the practice in the past has always been to put a copy of the error templates directory into every application - some people customize them to match their own application skin. Fusebox 5.1 added the ability to specify a mapped or root-relative path for all the configurable directories so you could have a single, central set of error templates that is used by all your applications. In Fusebox 5.5, the skeleton applications now take advantage of that and assume that there is a default set of error templates in the "/fusebox5" core file directory. Unfortunately I omitted that directory when I built the ZIP. Sorry. If you download the core files ZIP now, you'll find it contains the error templates as it should.

Fusebox 5.5 available for download!

December 03, 2007 ·

You can now download the Fusebox 5.5 core files, extensions and skeleton applications from the Fusebox website. The scaffolder functionality within the extensions package is currently in beta and we will be releasing updates to the extensions package throughout the coming months but the other aspects of the extensions package are final for this release, as are the core files and skeleton applications. The skeleton has changed substantially since the Fusebox 5.1 release. The skeleton directory now contains two minimal applications: one is a reworking of the traditional Fusebox 5.x skeleton that uses XML configuration files, the other is an equivalent application that uses no XML. The circuit names are the same in both versions but in the no-XML version, the controller circuit is a CFC.

Fusebox 5.5 Release Date

October 26, 2007 ·

Fusebox 5.5 will be officially released on December 1st! That means you have just one month left to download the Public Beta and take it for a test drive! We want Fusebox 5.5 to be the greatest release ever of Fusebox so we want as many people as possible to test it and log any issues they encounter (via the Bug Tracker on the Fusebox website). The Public Beta has been available since October 1st and only two minor bugs have been found so we're fairly confident that Fusebox 5.5 is ready to go but we'd really like some more folks to test it for us! If you're not already on the Fusebox 5 mailing list, you should join so you can discuss Fusebox 5.5 features and experiences. If you have a blog, please spread the news about the Public Beta and the release date.
