CFWheels 1.3.0 released

After a couple years of work on version 1.2 of CFWheels, we decided to reboot our efforts and simplify.

To mark this new milestone, we are releasing CFWheels version 1.3.0 today. Version 1.3.0 includes many back-ported commits from the 1.2 branch but aims to be a non-breaking upgrade.

If you’re upgrading, review the instructions for upgrading and enjoy some new improvements:

  • Form and view helpers are now more HTML5-friendly. (See the HTML5 data Attributes section of Form Helpers and Showing Errors.)
  • You can now create model components that don’t need a database table behind them. (See the Models Without Database Tables section of Object Relational Mapping.)
  • Application reloading and startup is now thread-safe.
  • 49 new features and bugs were fixed. See the CHANGELOG.

Give 1.3 a spin and submit an issue if you find any bugs. Some plugins may need to be updated, so be sure to work with plugin authors to get 1.3 compatibility going.

There are more exciting changes coming for and from our community. Thank you for your support!
