Having some implementation of Futures / Promises ( into CFML would be interesting. [...] they're pretty easy, and would be a sitter for a CFML implementation, and open it up to concurrent programming ( possibilities.

I would love to see this. I think threads are under leveraged due to the boilerplate required to use them. Futures/Promises are common enough in other languages that it would be a much easier learning path for developers to start using this feature more.

cfthread is horribly clunky. Let's have a proper set of concurrency primitives in CFML!

Would make a great upgrade to cfthread. It should be build in such a way that anyone that's done much front end work lately should be able to immediately understand it.

I would like to see better syntax to preform concurrent operations.

Can't say it any better than Adam did. This would be a very nice feature to have.

Am glad to see this has been marked "to fix / investigate". This is definitely a feature that you ought to be sharing any implementation plan with the ColdFusion community, as we will have a better idea of how we'd be using it than you would. So please don't just charge off and implement [something]: instead collaborate with the community resources you have at your disposal.

+1 This is one of those features that would actually add depth to this language.

Hello? Can you please confirm in what version of ColdFusion this is going to be implemented in. It says "to fix" but does not say which version.
