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.

Ortus Solutions prides itself on always learning, and evolving. Whether we learn from our colleagues, clients, community members, or other languages and communities, this all helps Ortus keep pushing forward and innovating. The CFML Community has been asking for Docker information lately, we knew Docker would be very important moving forward, and that is why we made it a priority for Ortus Solutions over the last 2 years. This week Luis and Gavin will be attending Docker Con 2018 in San Francisco ( June 12 - 15, 2018 ) to help further our learning, through great content, and great networking. If you are attending, we'd love to talk to you.

Jun 01, 2018


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.
