2006 CFUnited 2007 Registration Open
CFUnited (formerly CFUN) has become the premier ColdFusion specific event. I've attended for the past 5 years (with the exception of 2003), and plan on attending this year too. And as in previous years, I expect that the bulk of the CF team will be in attendance as well. If you are serious about ColdFusion and CFML, this is one event you don't want to miss! Registration is now open.
2006 FlexSearch Powered By ColdFusion
Ted Patrick built FlexSearch, a simple search app to locate Flex content from dozens of sources (he has over 50,000 articles indexed). Ted posted details on his blog, and also noted that this is his first real ColdFusion application. Well done Ted, and welcome to the wonderful world of ColdFusion simplicity and productivity! Now I almost forgive you for having a PHP powered blog! ;-)
2006 ColdFusion MacTel Support
I just received a rather upset (and even irate) e-mail from a user complaining about ColdFusion's lack of MacTel support.
While some users have indeed gotten ColdFusion to run on MacTel boxes, MacTel is not an officially supported platform. Why? Simply because ColdFusion MX7 was released before the first generation Intel-based Macintoshes were released (January 2006, I believe)!
Having said that, lots of customers have asked for MacTel support, and we do indeed plan on supporting this platform in "Scorpio" (which we've already said is slated for a mid-2007 release).
Of course, all plans can (and sometimes do) change. ;-)
