Adobe has just made an announcement about i's 2023 Coldfusion version, codename Fortuna. BIG NEWS!
Are you Fortuna- te ?
The ACF 2023 open beta is out. And it is available free to all CFers to test the new features and check that your codebase is compatible with this release.
Let's test ColdFusion 2023
Adobe is inviting CFers to provide initial feedback on Fortuna Alpha and “how we can shape the future of ColdFusion”. This clearly means that Adobe is nowhere near being done with Coldfusion, as so many people are (still… why?) claiming.
Project Fortuna is power packed and comes with several features, like:
Central Config Server
Several bug fixes
All these features are works in progress, and Adobe is expecting feedback from us to make them awesome.
What to do and how to sign up?
Here is where you can get ACF 2023 beta.
They have Linux and Windows versions of CF, .NET integration installer, Docker Image (ubuntu), VS Code Extension (adds support for CF Fortuna), and Documentation. There is also a “bugs fixed & known issues” file.
So, let's hope that it will be everything that Adobe claims to be (in which I have no doubts…) and let's test it to make one more CF version awesome and even more alive.
