We were busy this week, we released a lot of content for you... on the podcast, cfcasts, youtube, and our blog. Here's the summary in bite size pieces
Into the Box is sneaking up closer and closer. With so many announcements, we can't post them all to the Ortus Solutions blog, so we're going to just give you updates when we can. To read all of our blog posts from ITB, visit the site or subscribe to RSS https://intothebox.org/blog
This week we're going to be announcing the first set of Sessions, some of the Speakers, and some more sponsors. Last week was a big week for Into the Box too, check out the highlights
In the last blog post, we learned many reasons why we wanted DRYer more reusable code in ColdFusion. This blog post will talk about some of the different tools ColdFusion / CFML gives you to achieve that.
We are pleased to announce the release of cbElasticsearch version
2.3.0. cbElasticsearch is the Elasticsearch module for the Coldbox platform, and provides a fluent CFML API for interacting with, searching, and serializing to Elasticsearch servers.
This release includes documentation updates and and enhancements to core functions of the
IndexBuilder components, as well as additional error handling for async tasks.
We are pleased to announce the immediate release of CommandBox 5.5.1, the latest version of our CFFML package manager, REPL, and CLI tool. This release has been 6 months in the making and closed 66 tickets.
As usual, the docs have all been updated to include the latest goodness. You can read them here:
Today we are pleased to announce the release of version 3.5.0 of our CommandBox Docker images, which contains upgrades to the underlying CommandBox engine.
Most significantly, this release upgrades the CommandBox binary to 5.5.1, which uses Lucee 5.3.9 as the underlying CFML engine. In addition, this release changes the underlying base image over to use the
eclipse-temurin image builds.
I know we all reuse code and some types of reuse are better than the others (I'm looking at you COPY AND PASTE / man in the mirror), but copy-paste is only a symptom of a larger issue, that WET code is not as easy to maintain as DRY code.
Ortus Solutions is happy to announce we have new finalized dates for Into the Box 2022 and the venue. Into the Box 2022 will be hosted in Houston Texas, Tuesday September 6th through Thursday September 8th, 2022.
