ColdBox 5.1.2 Released!

Luis Majano
Jul 24, 2018

 

What's New With 5.1.2

This is a patch release for ColdBox

Bugs/Regressions

  • [COLDBOX-711] - HTML helper cannot add fontawesome icons in button due to XSS enabled by default
  • [COLDBOX-712] - ColdBox shutdown code that uses CF mappings for modules fails on fwreinit
  • [COLDBOX-713] - addAsset throw error when called from handlers

Improvements

  • [COLDBOX-714] - Too many issues when encoding by default for HTML Helper, revert to non-encoded and provide ways to encode globally and a-la-carte

HTML Helper Changes

The HTML Helper has been migrated to an internal module in this release. It allows you to configure it via the following configuration settings in your ColdBox.cfc.

moduleSettings = {
    htmlHelper = {
        // Base path for loading JavaScript files
        js_path = "",
        // Base path for loading CSS files
        css_path = "",
        // Auto-XSS encode values when using the HTML Helper output methods
        encodeValues = false
    }
}

Injection Shortcut

You can also now inject the HTML helper anywhere using it's injection DSL Shortcut of @HTMLHelper

CommandBox 4.1.0 Released

Brad Wood
Jun 26, 2018

 

Close on the heels of our big CommandBox 4.0.0 release, we have a small update we've released today: 4.1.0.  This release is mostly to fix a couple small bugs in the 4.0.0 release, but it does have a few new features in it, so we've bumped a full minor version instead of just a patch release.

Today we are very pleased to announce the final release of CommandBox 4.0.0.  This has been one of our most ambitious releases and closed more than 70 tickets over 6 months of development and testing.  

This release has gone through a month of testing that created two release candidates.  A big thanks goes out to everyone who helped provide feedback.  There are a lot of new features and libraries in 4.0 as well as a major overhaul of many of the UI aspects of the CLI.

CommandBox 4 Release Candidate Available for Testing

Brad Wood
May 15, 2018

 

After 6 months of development, we are pleased to announce that CommandBox 4.0.0-RC.2 is available for your testing.  In case you're wondering, RC.1 was released at Into The Box last month, but I was super busy at the time and on the road for 2 solid weeks and didn't have the docs fully updated, so I didn't have a chance to blog it then.  A huge thanks goes out to everyone who help contribute ideas, pull requests, and testing for CommandBox 4.  This is truly a group effort.

query.from('posts')
    .whereNotNull('published_at')
    .whereIn('author_id', [5, 10, 27])
    .get();

// Schema Builder
schema.create( "users", function( table ) {
    table.increments( "id" );
    table.string( "email" );
    table.string( "password" );
    table.timestamp( "created_date" ).default( "CURRENT_TIMESTAMP" );
    table.timestamp( "modified_date" ).default( "CURRENT_TIMESTAMP" );
    table.timestamp( "last_logged_in" ).nullable();
} );

Redis Lucee v1.0.0 Extension Released!

Luis Majano
Jan 17, 2018

 

 

We are very excited to bring you a new commercial product release for the Ortus Family: Redis Lucee Extension  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?
  • Do you want to be able to cache data in a distributed and elastic fashion?

 

We have been working with Redis Server for many years and it has been a true pleasure to not only build scalable farms with it, but also it is incredibly responsive when it comes down to key-value storage and caching transactions.

Capabilities

Here are some of the major features of our Redis Extension:

  • Add Native Redis functionality to any Lucee CFML application
  • Install at the server level (Available to all contexts)
  • Create Cache connections in the Lucee administrator to connect to any network-accessible Redis cluster
  • Set and get objects from Redis via standard CFML functions and tags cachePut(), cacheGet(), <cfcache action="get|put">
  • Fully supports all built-in Lucee cache functions including wildcard filters
  • Seamlessly distribute storage of the following to any bucket in a Redis cluster
    • Lucee session storage
    • Lucee client storage
    • Lucee RAM resource ram://...
  • Seamlessly cache the following to any timeout-sensitive bucket in a Redis cluster
    • Results of database queries <cfquery cachedwithin>
    • Results of deterministic functions <cffunction cachedwithin>
    • Complex or simple objects in your application's code
    • Cached templates <cfcache action="content|cache|serverCache">
  • Registers new CFML Built-In Functions (BIFs) for native Java access to Redis
  • Extremely lightweight and fast
