Popularity of ColdFusion Frameworks

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.

ColdFusion Framework Google Groups

FarCry has developer, user and beta lists. And the numbers don't include various folks who post exclusively through the Nabble web interface.

It's not meant to be anything but an indication of developer base -- one framework is not better than another based purely on the number of developers on lists. Certainly Fusebox and its numerous spin-offs would command a much larger audience. Plus FarCry has the unfair advantage of being a solution as well as a framework -- so I'm sure there are many developers who sign up without taking the framework out of the garage.

Still its interesting to see the comparative interest in the platform.
