I just uploaded a small video to youtube to demonstrate how easy it is to use the ColdBox Dashboard to auto update your ColdBox installation. You can find the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTbXiUeQOG0 Or you can view it below, if the embedded video works:
Yesterday, we went over the initial steps on the config.xml, click here to read it. We went over the Settings element and all the configurations that ColdBox can do for you. Today we continue on reviewing the rest of the elements in this config file.
This is the full config.xml file:

I am just announcing that I bought www.coldboxframework.com and www.coldboxframework.org. and they will soon begin to show some life. I also have prepared my new Trac site hosted by SVN Repository which is truly awesome. Soon I will be releasing the read only access to the SVN repository and let people play around with the upcoming 1.1.0 release. (More on this below) The new address for the Trac site is: http://ortus.svnrepository.com/coldbox/trac.cgi So what will the 1.1.0 release include? Why use it? why why why? Well, I have been taking all the feedback from the previous releases, tested, tested, and more tested, and came up with a leaner and meaner framework. All thanks to the great feedback for a framework that has been released to the public not so long ago, but been used privately for more than a year now. The main question that people had asked about the framework is why should you use it and what is the difference with what is out there already: Fusebox, mach-ii, model-glue, etc. Well here are some answers for you that will shed light on the subject and prepare you for what is coming along.
I have deployed the latest build of the 1.1.0 release to my website and now providing the backbone for this blog, the forums, and ColdBox Reader. This post is to showcase ColdBox Reader. It is a web 2.0 application built using ColdBox and Ajax interactions. You can start checking it out here: ColdBox Reader This is a shared rss reader that will captivate your mind. Here is a screenshot of the application:
In preparation for the 1.1.0 release of ColdBox, I am writing documentation like crazy so I can help developers understand more on how to use this framework. I have just finished all of the Guides and a new section which actually lists all the thrown exceptions by the framework. You can take a look at the list here: Exceptions List Guides: Guides FAQ ...
I won't be going this year to MAX, due to me starting a new job at ESRI the coming month. SO you won't be able to drill me with questions about ColdBox. However, Oscar Arevalo is on its way as the representative of Home Portals (www.homeportals.net) and ColdBox. He is part of the ColdBox team, so if you see him at the conference, ask him!! He has the latest copy of 1.1.0 preview, so if you are interested, you can bump a copy from him. Sorry Oscar!!...
