Great! Can you comment on what is working now in BD7 that wasn't before? Also, do you see Dashboard working in BD7 or not possible?

Thanks guys!! Yes, performance increases will be seen on this release, I did some cleanup. @ziggy As for bluedragon compatability, we have the use of some XML methods that were not there before, BlueDragon charting for the debugger, and yes, the dashboard should be fully functional under BlueDragon 7. If you find some bugs, please post, but in my tests, it has been functional.

I'm glad to see that you are embracing Railo and Bluedragon. I'm looking at using Railo 2.0 in my next project as it's speed is awesome. It sounds like Transfer and Reactor will also be working on Railo soon...
