The Adobe ColdFusion Team are doing a bloody good job at the moment

I know I am the first (and loudest, and most repetitive...) to whinge about Adobe's ColdFusion lads (/ladesses), but... fair's fair... there's very bloody little to complain about at the moment.

We've recently had sizeable updates for both ColdFusion 11 and ColdFusion 10, and they've given us a public beta of the latest patch for CF11, and they've even updated it already to include some new fixes.

But the best thing is how much activity there is in the ColdFusion bugbase at the moment. If you subscribe to the @cfnotifications Twitter feed (and if you don't, why don't you?), you might be like me and have been sitting there watching all the update messages coming through and thinking "oops... it's got a bit confused", but I've checked the updates out, and the deluge of traffic is basically down to how many updates Adobe are posting at the moment (and a lot are Aaron Neff testing stuff, that said). The bugbase is actually active at the moment.

Adobe have to keep this momentum up, and they have to gain momentum with their bug fixing (see "ColdFusion: Adobe kinda trumped me to this"), but they seem to have started something rather good indeed.

Good work Adobe peeps. And keep it up.
