ColdFusion On OSX Leopard And 64bit

Lots of you have been asking for official ColdFusion support for OSX Leopard. And lots of you have also been asking for a 64bit version of ColdFusion (currently only 64bit Solaris is supported). The good news is that we are working on both. I can’t give you a release date yet, but … stay tuned for an upcoming announcement.

    Hooray – we are certainly interested as CF8 Standard is blazing fast on our Apple XServe (Intel) box right now, and when we move to Leopard later next year, 64-bit-everything would be lovely indeed!
    ColdFusion is really into gear now, great!
    Best regards,

    Super, I’ve been doing my nut in trying to get CF8 working on leopard for ages.
    Does this also mean a proper Apache 2.2 connector?

    Do you have any idea about support for WebShepher 6.1 and IHS 64 bit versions and MX 8? I have MX 8 installed but performance of the admin console is very spotty so far.

    Sorry to put a dampener on this news – but what about Verity on OS X. Is it ever going to be supported? Could ColdFusion include full support for Lucene instead?
    I know that Ray Camden has ported some of the functionality of Lucene into some handy tags but there is still a way to go before these are as simple and effective as the in built indexing and searching using Verity.
    Please Adobe – add verity or lucene support for the growing number of OS X users. We are about to deploy 2 X serves with 8 std and 8 enterprise in the new year. The only delay is working out a viable solution to the lack of Verity support.

    Any updates on this? Can we expect an update before the end of the year?

    Well? Any news at all? I have tried several of the supposed work arounds to no avail. This is really causing me problems.

    I need 64-bit ColdFusion 8 to work on Windows NOW. I’m tired of defending my decision to use CF instead of PHP/ASP/JSP. Our pages have gotten very slow and sometimes time out since we upgraded our Windows server to 64 bit and then we have to dumb it down to process CF. Please tell me when I can expect an upgrade to CF8 on 64 bit on Windows server.

    Abbey, if you want to run beta software then you can have it NOW. Otherwise, as soon as we are done testing it we’ll release it.

    Is there a way to get the beta NOW? I’ve filled out the forms at the sign up site but haven’t heard. Specifically interested in the OS X Leopard version followed by Linux.

    Shawn, I am also waiting on a reply back from the test team. If you have the beta version now how long did it take them to get back to you after you signed up?
