logoWe are proud to announce ColdBox Platform release version 3.7.0 and ColdBox DevBox 2.4. This is an important release that addresses many important issues, but also introduces some great enhancements. There are no compatibility updates needed and here are our "What's New" guideline:

This update includes updates to all of our major internal libraries as well (blog posts coming as well):

The most considerable new features in this release are done in the areas of the HTML helper and generation, RESTFul services, rendering data, ORM relationship compositions via population, i18n enhancements and integration testing enhancements.
