Adobe announced a few days ago that it has opened up for a short pre-release to get feedback on the support for new platforms for Coldfusion 10.
Adobe’s Rakshith Naresh shared the following program description:
The ColdFusion 10 – New Platform Support Prerelease program is intended to get feedback from the pre-release participants on the new platforms that we are supporting for ColdFusion 10. The scope of this prerelease is to ensure that ColdFusion 10 is functional on the new platforms – Windows Server 2012, Windows 8 and OS X 10.8 just as on the existing platforms that ColdFusion 10 is currently supported on.
“If you are interested in participating in this pre-release, send an email to [email protected] indicating that platform (Windows Server 2012/Windows 8/OS X 10.8) that you will be able to give us feedback on. The pre-release will open to a limited number and for a very short duration. So do send in your interest soon. We are also looking to get a balanced feedback across all the three platforms and that is the reason indicating the platform that you will be able to test on becomes important.”
One person commented, “That’s a great way to help out folks on those O/S.”
Another added, “With CF10 was possible to install the latest JRE (NOT the JDK) 6 over the installed version used by CF. (after stopping the CF and Jakarta services).Yes happily running JRE 6 Update 39. Does this apply with the Jave 7 JRE? Don’t want to break a happy server (having CFSHEDULER ISSUES however).”
It’s unclear whether the “very short duration” to be accepted into the pre-release is already over.
