Today we are very pleased to announce the final release of CommandBox 4.0.0.  This has been one of our most ambitious releases and closed more than 70 tickets over 6 months of development and testing.  

This release has gone through a month of testing that created two release candidates.  A big thanks goes out to everyone who helped provide feedback.  There are a lot of new features and libraries in 4.0 as well as a major overhaul of many of the UI aspects of the CLI.

CommandBox 4 Release Candidate Available for Testing

Brad Wood
May 15, 2018


After 6 months of development, we are pleased to announce that CommandBox 4.0.0-RC.2 is available for your testing.  In case you're wondering, RC.1 was released at Into The Box last month, but I was super busy at the time and on the road for 2 solid weeks and didn't have the docs fully updated, so I didn't have a chance to blog it then.  A huge thanks goes out to everyone who help contribute ideas, pull requests, and testing for CommandBox 4.  This is truly a group effort.

Screencast - Running CommandBox servers behind IIS with Boncode

Brad Wood
Jan 30, 2018


We've made another screencast for you and this one shows how you can run CommandBox sites behind an IIS web server using the Boncode connector.  If you're interested in using CommandBox for easy management of your production websites, this allows static files like images, JavaScript, or PDFs to be served by the web server.  It can also be handy if your site requires some IIS-specific features but you still want the portability and ease of deployment that comes with CommandBox and CFConfig.

Upgrading ContentBox with CommandBox? Here's something you need to know before you do

Gavin Pickin
Jan 22, 2018


CommandBox is a great product, and it is always improving. Recently, one of those improvements threw a MASSIVE wrench in my world, and it might affect you too. Long story short, ContentBox stores custom modules, themes, widgets inside of the ContentBox module, usually with some tricky gitignore magic, you can ignore the core, and just commit your custom code to your repo. Now, after an update to CommandBox, if you do a install contentbox --force to update ContentBox around your changes, you might be surprised when CommandBox deletes all of your ContentBox modules, all of your ContentBox themes, all of your ContentBox widgets. Why CommandBox hates us all of a sudden?
