This has hit some blogs, but I haven't seen it widely mentioned. Damon Cooper posted a vague entry about "Mystic"—which appears to be a version of ColdFusion targetted to be released. before "Scorpio" (which was thought to be the next version of CF—potentially v8.)
There hasn't been a whole lot of gossip about the new version of ColdFusion in the last few months—mostly I suspect because of the Adobe/Macromedia merger. Anyway, hopefully we'll start hearing more news now that the merger is complete.
