Adobe has released the latest version of ColdFusion, ColdFusion 8 (Scorpio) today. After a lot of testing, it is finally ready to go. This release marks yet another big step in the continued growth of one of the best application development languages out there.
So what is so great about this version? For me, it is the fact that there is nothing really big in it. If you look at the release notes and new features lists, there is tons of new stuff there, but it is all fairly small – a new tag here and there type thing. Instead of some really big, grand new feature set, Adobe has focused on what developer’s have been saying and asking for – and they have delivered. There are so many little things that will make it much easier and faster to develop powerful applications using ColdFusion.
So, if you have not heard of ColdFusion before or of ColdFusion 8, jump over to Adobe and take a look. It is quite impressive.
