This week we debuted our first-ever Object-Oriented Programming Series in our CFML learning platform, CFCasts.
We are pleased to announce the general availability of our latest CommandBox CLI release. This is a minor release that's full of bug fixes and enhancements. It should be backwards compatible (with one caveat below) and you can upgrade any previous version of CommandBox in-place to the latest release.
Today we released ColdBox v6.4.0 but it feels more like a major release than a minor one. We are introducing tons of new features in this release, especially our anticipated: ColdBox Scheduled Tasks feature set.

We are so excited to bring about a major release for the ColdBox Debugger project: v3.0.0. However, what in the world is the ColdBox Debugger module? I am glad you asked:
The ColdBox Debugger module is a lightweight performance monitor and profiling tool for ColdBox applications. It can generate a nice debugging panel on every rendered page or a dedicated visualizer to make your ColdBox application development nicer, funner and greater! Yes, funner is a word!

Today we are pleased to announce the release of version 3.3.0 of our CommandBox Docker images. This release contains a number of enhancements for multi-architecture support, Adobe Coldfusion 2021 compatibility, and security.
Of note, and a potentially breaking change for some, is that the base
ortussolutions/commandbox:latest tag is now based on OpenJDK11 rather than OpenJDK8. Those who require the Use of JDK8 should pin their builds to the
ortussolutions/commandbox:jdk8 tag. This decision was made because there is now only one JDK8 image that is currently being built -
This version also adds support for Adobe Coldfusion 20201 Package Control Manager with new environment variable support.
Best of all, we are now publishing multi-architecture builds. All of the base tags are now available in both
arm64 architecture - the latter, which is used increasingly on AWS and Apple's M1 processors. This opens up the door for additional architectures, in the future, including Windows.
Today is a majestic day! A day that brings the release of our very first beta for ContentBox 5! This release has been in development for over 6 months and its a major architectural shift from our previous versions; multi-site support. You can now migrate over your Mura CMS applications with ease to ContentBox knowing that multi-tenant support is now available for all, for FREE, FOREVER!

On our first workshop of the year (March 11 - 12) we will get Up and Running with Quick. For those of you unfamiliar with the topic, Quick is an ORM (Object Relational Mapper) written in CFML for CFML.With it you can map database tables to entities (CFCs), create relationships between entities,query and manipulate data, and persist all your changes to your database. Quick helps you give relevant names to important bits of SQL code, compose queries at runtime to get exactly the data you want in the most efficient way, and gets out of your way when you need or want to write barebones SQL.
