CFMX: Red Sky Announcement...

Posted by Dan on Jun 2, 2003 @ 2:29 PM

Macromedia has publically announced latest release of ColdFusion MX, code-named "Red Sky". Make sure to check out the presentation on their take on what's new. This will be a free update for CFMX users. Here's a quick overview:

Performance/Stability:

  • Optimized CFML compiler (This supposedly runs in realtime—no more caching class files to disk. I've also heard it's blazingly fast—so fast that writing the files to the file system slowed things down and they just recompile when needed. Supposedly they could recompile on every request and low trafficked sites wouldn't notice any issues.)
  • Increased runtime performance and stability
  • Updated JDBC/ODBC database drivers
  • New version of the JVM

Fixes:

  • Faster, more reliable COM integration
  • Improved database error messages
  • Expanded and updated documentation
  • Over 400 customer-identified issues

Updated OS Support:

  • Windows 2003/IIS6
  • Red Hat v7.3, 8, 9
  • SuSE 8
  • Solaris 9
