FORGEBOX v5.4.0 released!

We are so excited to bring you a minor but huuuge release for FORGEBOX and all of its editions. Here are the major updates for this release and the full release notes.


Major Updates

ColdBox 6

We have made the upgrade and forgebox.io is now fully powered by ColdBox 6.1.0. This was a major upgrade to our entire framework engine and we are reaping the so many benefits of the ColdBox release. From async operations, to major rendering improvements. The entire logging enhancements on its own have rendered a 2x performance boost for API calls. We have also analyzed our traffic data and our page rendering has increased by 27% due to the ColdBox 6 Rendering capabilities. These are significant boosts in performance and stability just by the underlying framework on itself. Great job ColdBox Team!
