CFEclipse 1.3 Released

But, you already knew that. (Sorry I'm late to the party, I've been busy studying for my exam, etc.) The suspense was killing everyone, it seems, on what all of the mysterious banners were that popped up on several key blogs (including mine? Now how did that happen?) Then came 'the hunt', that cool programmer's puzzler leading to the video. Finally Version 1.3 of CFEclipse is out of beta and available for download.

Over the coming weeks Mark and the crew will be putting out some info on the new features of CFEclipse. Most of the changes aren't very evident to those who've been on the beta, but one of the immediate enhancements I noted was the template introspection when I began to reference variables I had previously defined. Nice time saver. What goodies have the rest of you spotted?

The entire CFEclipse crew has been hard at work over the last year knocking off the bugs that had been reported, doing some fine tuning, plus cranking out a new site (which is still a work in progress). Truly great stuff from Mark Drew and everyone else on the CFEclipse project. So A) donate to their various 'conference' donation setups, and B) buy them lots of drinks at said conferences. Last I checked Mark was heading off for a well deserved trip to the pub. Someone buy that man a JD and Coke.
