Modernize all things!

FORGEBOX v5.4.0 released!

We are so excited to bring you a minor but huuuge release for FORGEBOX and all of its editions. Here are the major updates for this release and the full release notes.


Major Updates

ColdBox 6

We have made the upgrade and forgebox.io is now fully powered by ColdBox 6.1.0. This was a major upgrade to our entire framework engine and we are reaping the so many benefits of the ColdBox release. From async operations, to major rendering improvements. The entire logging enhancements on its own have rendered a 2x performance boost for API calls. We have also analyzed our traffic data and our page rendering has increased by 27% due to the ColdBox 6 Rendering capabilities. These are significant boosts in performance and stability just by the underlying framework on itself. Great job ColdBox Team!

CommandBox 5.2.0-RC.1 Release Candidate ready for testing

Brad Wood
Oct 12, 2020

 

It's been 4 months since we've had a CommandBox release, but we've actually been quite busy on a number of large improvements that took a while to settle down. Today we are pleased to announce a Release Candidate 5.2.0-RC.1 for you to help test. There's not usually a release candidate for "minor" CommandBox releases, but we've updated a lot of libraries and introduced some pretty big new features so we wanted to have a round of testing and feedback before we cut the final release.  There are 46 completed tickets for the 5.2.0 release.
