After several months of work, we are proud to announce the release of FORGEBOX 6. This has been a major undertaking spawning several months worth of work, a complete UI revamp for registered users, many bug fixes, multi-key API, and much more. We have also introduced our new Business Accounts with the ability for organizations to have a simple and human way of managing their final package releases and their teams.
A new year means focusing on new priorities and projects. With that in mind, we wanted to give FORGEBOX® the spotlight it deserves. Our goal is to make your job and your life easier, that’s why we have decided to bring down our pricing considerably!
Hi everyone, great news! Ortus is rolling out our new Ortus Community site to help consolidate all of our community support and interaction. As part of that effort, all our Google Group threads have been imported to the new Ortus Community and effective immediately, our Google Groups are closed for further posting.
ForgeBox is the NPM of the ColdFusion world, and with CommandBox, CFML's CLI, you can easily add new functionality to your project with a simple `box install packageName`.
We dedicate a portion of our CFML News Podcast to ForgeBox Modules. We had approximately 50 episodes in 2020, each with a ForgeBox Module, so we wanted to give you a way to see all of them in one place, so here they are.
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.
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!
qb 8.0.0 was released this past week, and it brings with it a small handful of new features. While this is technically a major release, I don't expect anyone to actually have a breaking change. In fact, I expect this will save you time and headaches as it has for me.
We've been publishing all stable Lucee builds and select release candidate builds to ForgeBox for some time now. This allows you to use CommandBox CLI to start up a Lucee server running the version of your choice.
server start firstname.lastname@example.org
Publishing these CF engines has been a manual process in the past, and was something we'd do after Lucee issued a release announcement. This has changed last week now with three major additions to our process aimed at giving you faster builds, easier testing, and more deployment options.
