Hey there CBWIRE enthusiasts! 👋 It's an exciting time in the world of ColdFusion Markup Language (CFML) development as CBWIRE 3.2 rolls out with some nifty new features that are set to make your development process smoother and more efficient. Let's dive right into the highlights of this latest release!

📣 Dispatch Browser Events

Enhancing user interaction, CBWIRE 3.2 introduces the ability to dispatch browser events. This feature empowers developers to create more interactive and dynamic web applications. You can now easily trigger browser events, enhancing the responsiveness and user experience of your CFML applications.

🌟 Auto-Population of Data Properties

First up, CBWIRE 3.2 introduces an incredibly handy feature: the automatic population of data properties. Previously, if you didn't define an onMount() method in your components, you had to manually handle the population of data properties. Not anymore! This process is now automated, saving you time and reducing boilerplate code in your projects. This feature ensures that your components are more intuitive and easier to manage, especially when dealing with dynamic data.

🔄 Module Aware Components

Ever found yourself wishing for a smoother way to call components within modules? Your wish is granted in CBWIRE 3.2! The new release adds support for calling components directly from modules with wire("MyComponent@module"). This enhancement simplifies the process of modular development, allowing you to organize and reuse code more efficiently.

🧩 Enhanced Template Functionality

Another significant update in CBWIRE 3.2 is the enhanced template functionality. You can now access event methods such as event.buildLink() directly within templates. This update provides a more seamless and efficient way to handle events and methods, further streamlining your development process.

CBWIRE 3.2 is a testament to the continuous evolution and dedication to making CFML development a breeze. These new features are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what CBWIRE offers to the ColdFusion community. So, dive in, explore these new capabilities, and take your CFML projects to the next level!

Stay tuned for more updates and happy coding! ✨
