CommandBox 3.5.0 Released

Brad Wood
Jan 10, 2017

 

We are pleased to announce the final release of CommandBox 3.5.0.  This is a minor release, with 53 completed tickets-- most of which are server enhancements focused on making server management and configuration easy across any engine.  This version has been in release candidate for a few weeks and has received a lot of testing.  As a minor release, there are no compatibility-breaking changes to any of the public APIs, but there has been some necessary restructuring of the back end bits related to starting servers that could possibly have an effect on you if you have any scripts or custom modules based on the previous folder structure of some server installs.  We recommend all users upgrade to this new version, but take a minute to review the changes so you can fully utilize the new features.
