2016 ColdFusion Security Update
The ColdFusion team has announced a critical update to ColdFusion 10 (Update 21) and 11 (Update 10) to address a potential issue associated with parsing crafted XML entities that could lead to information disclosure. CF2016 is not vulnerable to this issue. (ColdFusion 9 and earlier may be vulnerable, but are no longer supported. If you are running an older version of Coldfusion you really need to upgrade immediately).

2016 Back To School With Adobe Spark
It's Back-To-School time, and teachers all over are prepping for another year spent in the company of fresh eager (yeah, I know, but I'm trying to sound upbeat) faces. Back in prehistoric times, when I was in school, that meant sharpening lots of pencils, trying to get last year's chalk mark remnants off the board, obtaining a stack of clean projector transparencies and duplicator carbon sheets ... ouch! Teachers these days do much the same, although we've (thankfully) traded much of that ancient technology for shiny Chromebooks, iPads, and desktop computers.
Over the past two school years, I've had the good fortune and privilege of meeting lots of passionate teachers the world over, and many have shared the innovative ways that they are using our FREE Adobe Spark in their classrooms. Last year I shared some of these ideas here on this blog, and that post proved so popular that I am posting an update and including additional suggestions that teachers have since shared with me.

2016 Theme Preview Comes To Spark Video
Spark Video comes with a growing library of themes which provide your videos with everything from fonts, to colors, to animations and transitions. If you wanted to know what a theme looks like you need to actually apply it, click on it to see the new colors and fonts applied, then play it to see the new animations. To make theme selection easier we just added a preview feature to the Spark Video iOS app (it'll be coming to the web version, too), just tap the theme and the theme button will animate to preview the theme.
