Macromedia Labs is online. This new site is your source for early looks at emerging products and technologies from Macromedia, and you can download the Flex 2 alpha (including Flex Builder 2 and the ColdFusion adapter) right now.
… and MM using PHP!
ColdFusion adapter page try:
Warning: DOMDocument::loadXML() [function.loadXML]: internal errorExtra content at the end of the document in Entity, line: 2 in /data/www/sites/labs-live.macromedia.com/docs/wiki/includes/User.php on line 1427
Why is MM using PHP? It would have been nice to keep it in the family.
The Wiki is written in PHP, because it is the best Wiki software out there (the one used by Wikipedia and others). And thus far no one has ported it to CF, or even written a CF Wiki (that we know of).
"The Wiki is written in PHP, because it is the best Wiki software out there"
That’s just a tad subjective, no? I’ll add some more:
Confluence would have been a better choice. You would have way less people complaining, because Java + CF are complimentary technologies. From the surface, it crushes MediaWiki. So I guess the only reason would be that it’s not free?
Confluence is indeed nice, but why pay for a wiki when you can just get decent freeware? Sure, most are built in PHP, but Macromedia also supports PHP in Dreamweaver.
Of course, I always go with Trac (http://projects.edgewall.com/trac/) myself. Free, written in Python, adds in a task tracker, and includes some nice handy ties to Subversion.
