ColdBox: 1.0.1 revision is now available.

Luis Majano |  October 15, 2008

I just finished uploading some initial observations of the beta. Specifically one with the ApplicationStartHandler, where it was not firing automatically, just manually through the fwreinit action. You can download the update, or you can use the auto-update feature of the dashboard. So give that auto-update feature a spin and let me know if it blows up. http://www.luismajano.com/projects/coldbox Enjoy.
