Today we are excited to release ColdBox v6.5.0 and its standalone companion libraries: CacheBox, LogBox and WireBox. This release has focused on stability and making sure all bugs are addressed especially when using our schedulers and asynchronous processes. As usual, here are the update procedures:

update coldbox

# If you are using standalone libraries, then update those
update wirebox
update cachebox
update logbox
