Though I have BlueDragon and a 1 yr upgrade contract I am not very enthoused about this beta release. It still does not have the features that CF 7 has and Adobe has recently announced the upcoming release of CF8. If I had known that New Atlanta was soo behind and that way over half way throught 2006 it version 7 would only be in beta I would have chosen CF7 a year ago.Thanks for the notice however.

Interpret as you will. Let the wild, random speculation begin!JRun 4.5 Beta Closed
Maybe, just for a moment and an insane idea, that there was a new version of JRun that was being tested by people.

Maybe that something is ColdFusion.Naaaa, too strange and far fetched an idea. :)

Hmmm... just to add some more wild randomness:We had some Adobe pre-sales guys in here to talk about Flex recently, and here's what they said:The Flex development team works on BEA Weblogic. Of course, this came out just after we told them we were using Weblogic, so... grain of sand?They were very interested in knowing whether we had any plans to use or investigate JBoss in the near future?Thing is, Adobe will always need some kind of J2EE server to use as a default for people who just want a simple install. Whether that has to be JR…
