We are tremendously excited to finally bring you the final release for the ColdBox Plaform including all of it's standalone libraries: WireBox, CacheBox and LogBox. This has been a year long process in order to bring you one of our biggest and most stable releases to date. We continue to innovate in this release and pushing the boundaries of our ColdFusion/CFML/Java languages. All the docs and application templates have been updated and we are working on a What's New With ColdBox 6 cfcasts series that will be coming next week. Welcome to ModernLand!

In the next couple of weeks we will be blogging and adding videos to show case the major features of this release.
