Well, a second opportunity to deliver "Down & Dirty With ColdBox 2.5.0 - Who, What, Why?" this coming Thursday. We had all the technical difficulties imaginable last time. Hopefully, we will do better this time. My Friend Josh Giese will be helping me out with his FIOS and awesome equipment. So I can't fail!!
RC 2 includes tons of fixes and the up and coming SES support. Please test to your heart's delight. Download RC 2 Now You can find more guides at the wiki and the What's new guide at http://ortus.svnrepository.com/coldbox/trac.cgi/wiki/cbWhatsNew2.50 That will tell you everything.
I did yesterday a presentation at the Orlando User Group, ADOGO, and it went awesome. Thanks Brian and crew for hosting me. The presentation covers some theory but we did a lot of hands on. I showed off event caching, scaffolding support via illudium, even ses support, and much much more. So check it out at the following URL: http://adobechats.adobe.acrobat.com/p91785199/
I am so happy to announce that the last bug for BlueDragon 7 on ColdBox has been resolved. It was tricky, but it all came down to using "-" on the name of the thread being created.
If you have something like:
This would fail parsing in bluedragon 7 but work as normal in Adobe CF. So I had to replace and come up with better names:
And voila!!! It works!! So the final bug registered for ColdBox RC 2 has been resolved. Hopefully, no more bugs will creep up. If you have any, then send them in. As of now, THERE HAVE BEEN NO MORE REPORTED COLDBOX RC2 BUGS. This might cause a release soon!!

I got word today that I could post this story, so here it is. NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory has adopted ColdBox for their web application development on several projects. This is very good news for the ColdBox and ColdFusion community as more and more companies are adopting ColdBox as their framework and software toolkit.
After several months of development, ColdBox 2.5.0 is finally here. This is a truly great release and I want to thank God for his guidance. The release includes tons of new features, updates and fixes. All you need to know about the framework has been documented and can be found at the current wiki:
What's New in 2.5.0
Also, a compatibility guide has been created. Most likely all of your 2.0.3 code will be compatible. However, you need to understand the changes that 2.5.0 implements, since it now uses Application.cfc as a bootstrapper. You can find the guide here:
Compatibility Guides for 2.5.0
Many people collaborated on this release and there are too many to name, but some are: Sana Ullah, Oscar Arevalo, Russ Johnson, Rob Gonda, Brian LeGros, Tom DeManincor, Matt Quackenbush, Aaron Roberson, Peter Bell, etc...
Well, enjoy this release, and please let me know what are your thoughts and how "WE, TEAM COLDBOX" can improve on this incredible framework and software toolkit.

Also, a new cheat sheet has been created and it totally rocks!! It is two pages long and it will help you in almost any ColdBox development. Enjoy this awesome release!!
