CFWheels 1.4.0 released, New documentation too..

First, some new announcements

You may have noticed a few changes around here! With the release of 1.4, we’ve taken the opportunity to greatly simplify our web footprint.

  • All documentation now lives on http://docs.cfwheels.org/ (thanks to readme.io). We hope this will allow people to more easily contribute to the fantastic documentation already there; you need a (free) readme.io account, but you should be able to ‘suggest edits’ for any page – feel free to help us out! We’re in the process of adding redirects from the old documentation – please bear with us on this one.
  • You’ll notice the plugin listings are greatly simplified – this is a temporary measure whilst we look at the whole plugin ecosystem generally
  • Downloads now live on the readme.io site at http://docs.cfwheels.org/page/download, but don’t forget you can always get everything at the Git Repo
  • You’ll notice a small change in the cfWheels logo – don’t panic, you’re not going mad, we just thought it might be nice to have something new and shiny to look at.
  • Tom King and Tim Badolato are now part of the Wheels core team. “Per” still does all the actual real work 🙂

Onwards and upwards!

1.4 is released, which brings the usual host of fixes and improvements, most noticeably a few tweaks to get Wheels running with Lucee Server: CFWheels should now correctly identify itself as Lucee in the debug output, and various other (older) Railo specific tweaks should get applied. Note, if you’re ever testing for ‘railo’ in the server scope on Lucee, it will return as true.

A couple of other changes might catch you out too, noticeably removal of the h() function, and “development” now being the default environment mode.

Get 1.4 Now!

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!
