Redis Lucee v1.2.0 Extension Released!

Luis Majano
Mar 05, 2019

 

 

We are very excited to bring you another release for our Redis Lucee Extension. This is our first minor release for this extension and it sports quite a few updates thanks to customer feedback. Here is a little introduction for those that are not familiar with our extension:

Overview

The Redis Lucee Extension allows you to natively connect to a Redis Server cluster and leverage it for distributed caching, session/client storage and distribution, cluster RAM file systems, and much more. It can allow your Lucee servers to scale and extend easily by leveraging Redis Server as the platform of choice for session/cluster managements, caching and virtual file-systems.

If you have ever asked yourself these questions, then our Lucee Extension can help you:

  • Want to use round-robin balancing instead of sticky sessions?
  • How do you deal with session/client information when you have more than 1 server in your cluster?
  • How can I scale my Lucee servers when I am running out of RAM?
  • Do you want your users to still be logged in even if a server in my cluster dies or is restarted?
  • Do you want to have a cluster-wide file system?
  • Are you using a container based deployment and need off heap peristence?
  • Do you want to be able to cache data in a distributed and elastic fashion?

What's New With 5.2.0

ColdBox 5.2.0 is a minor version update with lots of fixes, improvements and some new features not only to the ColdBox core but to LogBox and WireBox standalone versions alike. Below are the major areas of improvement and the full release notes. To update your installations just issue the commands below with CommandBox:

  • update coldbox - Update ColdBox Platform
  • update logbox - Update standalone LogBox
  • update wirebox - Update standalone WireBox

ColdBox


The major areas of improvement for the ColdBox core where on tons of fixes, however there are some nice new features discussed below.

Bugs

  • [COLDBOX-597] - Function addAsset generate wrong link if asset path contains ".js"
  • [COLDBOX-668] - Make implicit views case sensitive by default for linux systems
  • [COLDBOX-677] - HTML HELPER - Fix a requirement for columnName if column is defined
  • [COLDBOX-696] - Passing headers to `request` breaks RoutingService when in test mode
  • [COLDBOX-724] - Add ENV overload in detectEnvironment() via ENVIRONMENT system setting/property
  • [COLDBOX-726] - setNextEvent does not exist in coldbox.system.web.Controller
  • [COLDBOX-727] - fail fast strong typed to boolean, update to allow custom closures/lambdas
  • [COLDBOX-729] - getRenderData\(\) in base test case was not looking at the right request collection
  • [COLDBOX-732] - Fail fast can't be turned off for original behavior of ColdBox 4
  • [COLDBOX-736] - Module mappings disappear when not unloading ColdBox in base test case
  • [COLDBOX-738] - Clear not working on string builders: Use setLength\(0\) since clear is not a method on StringBuilder

New Features

  • [COLDBOX-722] - New global directive: autoMapModels which if true, it will map all root models just like modules do.

This will allow root models to behave like modules where all models are registered automatically for you but with no namespace.

  • [COLDBOX-737] - toAction() terminator is missing from the new router DSL

This terminator was missing from the new Routing DSL. This will allow you to build up routes that terminate at an action.

  • [COLDBOX-720] - Register config/Router.cfc as an interceptor

The main application router and ALL module routers are now also interceptors.

Improvements

  • [COLDBOX-730] - Implicitly pass args from renderLayout() into the rendered views
  • [COLDBOX-739] - List modules which have already been processed when a module cannot be activated to help with debugging

Bugs

Improvements

  • [WIREBOX-77] - Virtual inheritance not inheriting init from super class
