What's New in BlueDragon 7?


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

Below is a list of the new features - I think the IsNull function and null keyword will prove to be quite handy.

  • Multi-threaded programming (CFTHREAD, and related tags and functions)
  • Interfaces and Abstract CFCs
  • null keyword and IsNull() function
  • CFQUERY Enhancements
    • BACKGROUND attribute
  • Application.cfc
    • onClientStart() handler
    • onMissingTemplate() handler
  • CFSEARCH Enhancements
    • support for Word and PDF documents
    • support for multiple languages
  • UDF Forward References in CFML pages
  • CFREGISTRY support for Windows registry
  • ASP.NET Partial Trust Mode (BD.NET)
  • support for MySQL 5.0, including stored procedures
  • support for 64-bit Windows and Linux
  • miscellaneous CFMX 7 compatible enhancements

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. :)
