Introducing the new Ortus Community

Brad Wood
Jan 21, 2021


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.

If you're a member of our Google groups, don't worry-- your user has already been imported into the community forum and as soon as you sign up, you will be automatically associated with all of your old posts so you can pick up your conversations right where you left off!  We've even added single sign on options for GithubFacebookGoogle, and Twitter (coming soon).  If your new account is under a different E-mail address, let us know and we can merge your accounts together.
If you're new to Discourse, you can read an overview of how the forum software works here
So please head over to the new Ortus Community site and try it out.  We're super excited about it and will be using it as a hub for all our community interactions.  If you have any questions or issues, please reach out to us on Slack or Twitter.

CommandBox 5.2.0-RC.1 Release Candidate ready for testing

Brad Wood
Oct 12, 2020


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.

Brad Wood
Jun 01, 2020


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.
