Leopard Blue Screen of Death

written by Geoff Bowers on Thursday, 15 November, 2007 @ 06:42 PM

Leopard... browse to your Windows colleagues over the network and you'll notice all the windows machines have a cute little computer terminal icon. Open up the "Flow" view in Finder and with a touch of magnification you'll find a host of little "blue screens". Macs are so cute.

Popularity of ColdFusion Frameworks

written by Geoff Bowers on Wednesday, 24 October, 2007 @ 07:21 PM

FarCry is getting increasingly popular since the 4.0 release. It's a mature product, in a commodity space so seeing that sort of traction is really motivating the Daemonites. It's interesting to compare the relative popularity of various ColdFusion framework Google Groups. Turns out FarCry tops the list despite playing second fiddle in many peoples perception.

FarCry 4.0.9: Scaffolds & WebTop Overview Skins

written by Geoff Bowers on Sunday, 21 October, 2007 @ 08:23 PM

We've been hard at work on the maintenance branch of FarCry 4.0 which is supposed to be for bug fixes. However, its been hard not to throw in a few new features every minor point release. In 4.0.9 we've been a bit naughty, adding some really cool new features to the mix. Thought we'd slip these in prior to merging back to trunk for the start of 4.1.

The next release of FarCry Core is codenamed Fortress. The roadmap centers on refactoring the internal security model and strengthening the underlying web application framework. Hopefully there is plenty in here for everyone, users and developers alike.

FarCry: modBreeze Plugin Released

written by Geoff Bowers on Wednesday, 10 October, 2007 @ 05:52 PM

As part of the FarCry Inspire session for MAX, I put together a great little plugin to show-case just how easy it is to build things in the FarCry framework. Thought I might put together a few notes describing how it all goes together. The solution requires the CFPRESENTATION tag, so you will need ColdFusion 8 to make things work.

Just following up from my MAX FarCry Inspire session. I've made the slide notes and entire code base of the demo available for download. I did my best to record the presentation and apparently that will be made available sometime next month.

Looks like I won't have to crash another Birds of a Feather at MAX Chicago -- FarCry now has its very own BOF: Monday, 8.30PM Room 176B. I'll be there for the whole session dishing out tid-bits on what's new and upcoming. Will also demo a variety of the new features that have been leaking into the current maintenance branch ;)
