We are so excited to bring you another great release of the ColdBox Platform v6.2.0!
Today we are pleased to announce the final release of CommandBox 5.2.0. This release has been 5 months in the making and covers nearly 50 tickets. We've already covered the full list of new features and enhancements in our release candidate announcement which you can read here:
After a month of RC testing, we've made several additional improvements and are ready to release.
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!
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.
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.
