ColdFusion 10, CF Builder 2

posted under category: ColdFusion on October 29, 2010 by Nathan

Just a quick note to say that I did hear, from the mouths of Adobe employees over this past week at MAX, that ColdFusion 10 is in development, and I saw, with my own eyes, ColdFusion Builder 2.0 running in a preview capacity.

For ColdFusion 10, they didn't announce anything at all about it - absolutely nothing, which is a little disappointing. All I got was a sentence fragment that confirmed that it did exist. Still, I can't wait until details start leaking out.

CF Builder looked really good. Raymond Camden already wrote down pretty much everything he saw at the preview. My quick take on it is that CF Builder 1.0 was trying to catch up with CFEclipse in a lot of ways, then surpass it in just couple, but 2.0 is improving on and surpassing all previous efforts pretty much everywhere. If you weren't impressed the first time around, stay tuned for a real, competitive IDE.

Nathan is a software developer at The Boeing Company in Charleston, SC. He is essentially a big programming nerd. Really, you could say that makes him a nerd among nerds. Aside from making software for the web, he plays with tech toys and likes to think about programming's big picture while speaking at conferences and generally impressing people with massive nerdiness and straight-faced sarcastic humor. Nathan got his programming start writing batch files in DOS. It should go without saying, but these thought and opinions have nothing to do with Boeing in any way.
