I have been debating with the decision to continue to support ColdFusion 7 in the main ColdBox core for version 3.0.0 and move ahead with CF8 compatibility. As of now, we have decided to maintain ColdFusion 7 support, but you can make this change. Our upcoming version is targeted for release by Fall of 2009 and we need your input. We have put together a small survey below and according to the community's response, we will either maintain the core to be ColdFusion 7 compatible or move ahead and have the core be ColdFusion 8 compatibility and above. This includes all CFML engine vendors of course. This survey will determine the development course of the platform. This software is for the community and SHOULD be directed by the community. So here is your chance!! All results will be posted here later on. I will keep this survey open for about 3 weeks.
This is only for versions 3.0.0 and beyond. This would not affect the current versions of 2.6.3.
