New Tutorial: Wheels, AJAX, and You

Raúl Riera and I collaborated on a new tutorial in the reference guide called Wheels, AJAX, and You. The tutorial discusses 3 different ways to request and receive data from the controller using asynchronous JavaScript.

While much of this may be standardized in future releases of Wheels, this tutorial gives you some fairly simple options for integrating AJAX functionality into your Wheels 1.0.x applications today.

Released: ColdFusion on Wheels 1.0.5

It’s my pleasure to announce the release of ColdFusion on Wheels version 1.0.5. Upgrade now to increase the stability of your codebase.

The CHANGELOG lists 23 bug fixes, many reported by the community. (more…)
