I guess not much of a news for CF enthusiasts. Get it here: http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/coldfusion8/
CF blogs have been buzzing with excitement over this first Adobe release of CF. Honestly, I also felt quite excited too, it seems that this version has quite a view of dazzling new features, these are from Adobe link above:
* Server monitoring to help identify server bottlenecks, allowing for tuning and improved performance. * Step through code debugging in a new Eclipse plug-in debugger. * Adobe Flex™ and Ajax features that let ColdFusion power personalized, multimedia-rich applications to enhance users’ experiences on the web. * High-quality, dynamically created on-demand multimedia presentations. * PDF document and form integration for a printable, portable way to intelligently capture and share information. * Image creation and manipulation with more than 50 new CFML tags and functions. * Native support for .NET objects to easily integrate ColdFusion applications with enterprise data and infrastructure services. * Significant application runtime and server performance improvements.
I am just wondering whether PHP developers are also as excited about PHP releases.. I never followed PHP blogs before (which I should have when I was programming PHP for S3Group), so they might as well be excited about PHP. All that I seem to notice with PHP releases are bug fixes and patching security holes.
Anyways, I am not bagging PHP, I am still coding in PHP for my personal website and some other side projects. But I’m just in love with CF at the moment (probably because I follow too many CF blogs).
