New Atlanta, just released Beta 1 of version 7 of their BlueDragon CFML application server.

  • Interfaces and Abstract CFCs
  • null keyword and IsNull() function
  • CFQUERY Enhancements
    • BACKGROUND attribute
  • Application.cfc

Awesome. Its great to see New Atlanta driving Coldfusion forward.

CF, as a language, remained largely the same between MX and 7, but I think this might be just the push we need to get the ball rolling. :)
