The FarCry Fortress release (the upcoming FarCry 5.0) has the ability to install in a variety of additional configurations -- in particular under the webroot. This will make life a lot easier for folks deploying into shared hosting environments.
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.
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 ;)
Daemon has released its FarCry 4.0 training course book under Creative Commons for personal use. That's 122 pages of documentation goodness for would be FarCry developers to peruse.
Been working on an entertaining demo of what FarCry Core is really all about; building web applications. If you're at MAX be sure to check out my Inspire session on Wednesday after lunch. I'll be around for the week, talking up ColdFusion and the whole FarCry caper.
Sparked by the desire to run my blog in FarCry, and being inundated with blog spam, I've cobbled together a nifty little plugin for FarCry called modCaptcha that uses LylaCaptcha to generate a captcha formtool.
One of the largest FarCry sites in the world has relaunched on FarCry 4.0: mayoclinic.com. The daemonites are proud to have played some part in making this colossal online repository of medical know-how a success. Project lead, Phil Truesdale, highlights some of the benefits of moving to 4.0.
The daemonites have recently rebuilt the entire Eureka Science Prizes website for The Australian Museum. The web application was rebuilt from the ground up, leveraging the existing design, and tussling with the migration of existing data. We're seeing a fair bit of traffic now that the People's Choice Awards have opened up, and the site is getting regular exposure on the ABC.
