Close on the heels of our big CommandBox 4.0.0 release, we have a small update we've released today: 4.1.0.  This release is mostly to fix a couple small bugs in the 4.0.0 release, but it does have a few new features in it, so we've bumped a full minor version instead of just a patch release.

The download page, apt/yum repos, and Homebrew have all been updated with the new release.  Here's a few highlights:

Release Highlights

  • Fixed the annoying "server spanner" error that *nix users saw when starting servers.
  • Updated CLI engine (and default server) version to Lucee which includes an important security fix.
  • Added a new "noninteractive" setting to improve the output on build servers like Jenkins or Travis-CI
  • Task runner metadata changes picked up without needing to reload the CLI
  • Ability to load ad-hoc modules on the fly from Task Runners

Here's the full list of tickets we addressed in the 4.1.0 release.  Thanks to those who send me pull requests for some of these fixes and features!
