ColdFusion 11: good news... <cfhtmltopdf> will be able to run on Linux too!

Just a short one... I figured it would be good if someone publicises this fact a bit more:

So that's cool! They're gonna implement the new PDF functionality on Linux too. I really don't think Adobe did themselves any PR favours by initially saying it was Windows only, but at least they are recovering a bit here.

Now all we need to do is to be a bit more emphatic that having this feature as enterprise-only is not on, either.

Oh... speaking of Linux... I also noticed this comment on the Adobe ColdFusion blog earlier:

@Danny, ColdFusion Thunder can now run on Linux. I forgot to list this point. I have updated the post now.
So that is good news too. And perhaps something Adobe should be making more of a point of publicising.

Anyway... good news.
