Today, we’re very excited to announce the 2018 release of Adobe ColdFusion. This release builds on Adobe’s industry-leading solution for creating and deploying scalable, high-performing web applications in CFML. Now in ColdFusion, we’ve added an all-new Performance Monitoring Toolset, a standalone server with low overhead to control and optimize applications and a new auto lockdown installer to help increase security in the Production Server. In addition, web developers can now boost the performance of their applications by taking advantage of […]

Congratulations!! It was strange that I was re-downloading the ColdFusion Builder 2016 Trial onto a Dell Precision system and was surprised to see this overnight. I haven't slept much but noticed something new going on - now I know. Lets check it all out. Best, Phil Chrisman

You STILL can't use CF with Office 365 or gSuite. It's 2018 for crying outloud. Bug CF-4198746. I may consider upgrading when it's fixed. That is all.

First off great work on the CF development team. Keeping it up to date keeps the technology alive. Having said that, IMHO, it could have used another beta release. Given the number of outstanding issues, I would recommend to my leadership to hold off until update 1. When that happens, I look forward to having unqualified enthusiasm for this version of CF.

Please make the new EULA available so we can examine differences.

<a href="https://coldfusion.adobe.com/profile/Mozus Media">Richard Orchard</a> I hear you. I filled out this issue very early in development . Sorry to hear it wasn’t taken seriously.

Even though there's not a link to it, this file appears to contain the 2018 license: https://wwwimages2.adobe.com/content/dam/acom/en/legal/licenses-terms/pdf/ColdFusion-2018.pdf I just diffed the full text to the 2016 license and there are only a few very minor wording changing and punctuation. No significant changes at all that I could find at least from a legal perspective. I was hoping there would be some new stuff regarding containerization in there.

The download page only allows for CF 2016 release. Where are the 2018 downloads?

Thanks. They need to update the CF Builder download page - says 2016 release but when the download starts is 2018 release. I bet CF2018 still contains CF2016 branding however.

What are the plans to support Windows Server 2019, which launches this year?

Can anyone confirm whether the PMT is in Enterprise-only or Standard also? It seems to be in both, judging from various resources (like the docs on it, https://helpx.adobe.com/coldfusion/performance-monitoring-toolset/overview-coldfusion-performance-monitoring-toolset.html) as well as the main product buying guide (https://www.adobe.com/products/coldfusion-family/buying-guide.html), which say it's in both. But then while the buying guide for the Enterprise edition (https://www.adobe.com/products/coldfusion-enterprise/buying-guide.html) lists it (and its features), the buying guide for the Standard edition (https://www.adobe.com/products/coldfusion-standard/buying-guide.html) DOES NOT list it, which would imply it's not. But then it's also listed on the Standard edition "features" page (https://www.adobe.com/products/coldfusion-standard/features.html). I'd just like to hear clear confirmation from someone rather than try to interpret the inconsistency. But then the same question stands for the Auto Lockdown tool, Distributed Caching (multiple engines), REPL, and REST Playground features. The Ent Buying Guide lists them, but not the general buying guide (first link above) nor the Std Buying Guide page--though they are all listed on the Std Features page. Perhaps it's simply that the Enterprise Buying guide listing them (and the General and Standard buying guide NOT listing these things) is just a mistake that will be corrected soon. Thanks.

BTW, if I *AM* reading things right (per my last comment), is it in fact the case that there is nothing new in CF2018 that is Enterprise-only? That would be encouraging for some to hear.

Ugh, that's odd. It seems the "previous comment" I just referred to is awaiting moderation while that one referring to it was NOT held up. Perhaps it's because the longer comment had links in it. For the sake of those confused by this (especially if the threading doesn't put things in the right order), the "previous comment" I refer to is the one I wrote that starts "Can anyone confirm whether the PMT is in Enterprise-only or Standard also?"

Your previous comment is approved. PMT is available for both standard and Enterprise customers.

Thanks, Rahul. Users of Standard will rejoice. But again, I asked for confirmation about 3 other features also, and as important, about correcting the feature guide page that led to the confusion.

Is PMT available in Developer edition? This would be a useful debugging/insight tool while developing things.
