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.

CommandBox 5.1.1 Released
We have pushed a patch release of CommandBox 5.1.1 which is a small addition to the recent 5.1.0 release. This release was primarily to address a regression in 5.1.0 affecting Mac OS users who tried to start Lucee servers. If you see an error similar to this on a Lucee server and you're running a Mac and CommandBox 5.1.0, then this release will fix it for you.
lucee.runtime.exp.NativeException: mac os x is not a supported OS platform.
If you are upgrading from CommandBox 5.1.0, there are only a handful of tickets which are listed below. If you are updating from an earlier version of CommandBox, please check out our 5.0.0 and 5.1.0 release blogs.
