We are proud to announce today a nice minor release for Ortus DataBoss version 1.3.0.  This release fixes lots of UI cosmetic issues and adds many improvements not only to the UI but also to better listing visualizations when having many-to-one and one-to-one relationships.

The major updates of this release is the capability to visualize many-to-one and one-to-one relationships on the listing screens now.  They also respect the db_display annotation as well, so you can pick and choose what shows on the listing screen.  This is great for visualizing many-to-many or relationships.

We have also added a new HTML control called "datetime" which allows you to split a timestamp or datetime field into a date and time picker.

What is DataBoss?

Ortus DataBoss is an application that will help you manage CFML Object Relational Mapper (ORM) objects without the need of writing administrative code for them; thus a Dynamic Administrator.  DataBoss will talk to the underlying ORM engine (Hibernate) and get all the necessary information to manage all the ORM entities and its relationships in that specific CFML application DataBoss has been deployed to.  You can watch our introductory video to get a quick overview of what DataBoss is and how it can benefit your development.
