We've released a very small patch release to CommandBox 5.0.0 which is 5.0.1 and has only 5 tickets. Most all are related to tweaks for the new server start bash script functionality that we've been rolling into our Ortus CommandBox Docker images.
This will allow you to visualize that each ContentBox version can be paired with new image versions. This will also allow for rollbacks and rolling upgrades if necessary; all following semantic versioning. So let's dig in to this release!
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 email@example.com
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.
We are pleased to announce the release of CommandBox 5.0.0. This is a major release of our CLI package manager, REPL, and server tool. In this version are many library updates, new features, and bug fixes. All in all, there were 77 tickets closed for this release.
We are excited to announce a new minor release of TestBox version 3.2.0. To install just use CommandBox:
install testbox --saveDev or to update your TestBox installation
update testbox. So let's explore this release
Today we bring you a minor release for cbSecurity packed with features! Version 2.2 brings a complete overhaul of our
jwt library and we have now switched over to the
jwtcfml (https://forgebox.io/view/jwt-cfml) library which has given us a huge boost in capabilities especially supporting
ES algorithms. Check out their ForgeBox entry page to see all the features we inherit by using it.
We have also focused on improving our JWT and API security on this release, so check out the release notes for all the goodness!

We are so excited to bring you a major release for cbValidation! cbValidation has been around for quite some time and it was about time to give a major boost in development. We have also completely rewritten the documentation to make it more attractive and user-friendly (https://coldbox-validation.ortusbooks.com/). Enjoy!

We are so excited to bring a major version release of our Mementifier Module. For those of you who do not know what Mementifier is, here is a small synopsis.
This module will transform your business objects into native ColdFusion (CFML) data structures with :rocket speed. It will inject itself into ORM objects and/or business objects alike and give them a nice
getMemento() function to transform their properties and relationships (state) into a consumable structure or array of structures. It can even detect ORM entities and you don't even have to write the default includes manually, it will auto-detect all properties. No more building transformations by hand! No more inconsistencies! No more repeating yourself! Best of all, it is lightning fast!
