Version 0.9 of Beehive Forum, probably the greatest forum software there is, has recently been officially released.

There is also now support for Google Analytics and for displaying optional Google Adsense adverts. For full information on what has changed, you can check the release notes.

Java RegEx Utilities, or jre-utils, is a CFC which provides a convenient way to access Java's regular expression functionality.
Whilst ColdFusion, Railo, and openBD are all built on Java, and CFML does have regular expression functions, they do not actually use the Java regular expression engine, which supports many useful regex constructs.
The purpose of jre-utils is to provide this extra power to CFML developers in a familiar and easy to use way.
I will shortly be releasing v0.7 of jre-utils, which adds a number of new functions, as well as making things more consistent, so I decided I would give this quick preview of what it contains.
It's been nearly half a year since Railo 3 was released, and with 3.1 just around the corner it is a good time to write a post about some of the features that continue to make Railo such an excellent CFML engine!
This blog entry covers things new to Railo 3 - however, if you've not looked at Railo before, you should also look at my previous postings, as they are still valid:
This blog entry gives ten reasons for using Railo 3...
The long awaited Railo 3.0 is out of Beta and available to all.
There are a lot of exciting new features with Railo 3.0: multimedia video conversion and manipulation, video player with playlisting, task manager, cluster scope, CF8 compatibility, and more.
Also, with Railo 3.0, the Community and Professional versions have been combined - keeping the price of the Community edition (i.e free), but without the previous restrictions this had. (With Railo 3.1 due later this year, Railo will fully become Free Software, under the LGPL2 license.)
For more details, the best place to head is the rebrushed Railo website, which has been updated to provide information on what is new with Railo 3.0.
There will also be a three part series on the Railo blog covering the new features. The first entry in the series is already available.
The first pre-release version of the qpScanner Eclipse Plugin is now available.
This is the very first Eclipse plugin I have created. It was an interesting
experience, and something that I will be writing up in a separate entry as soon
as I can collect my thoughts.
It order to use the plugin, you must be using v0.7 or higher of qpScanner -
if you do not yet have this, you can download the
development version of qpScanner, which contains details of the Update Site
to use. If for any reason you cannot use the regular Eclipse Update method, you
can directly download the qpScanner Eclipse Plugin instead.
Just to be clear, both v0.7 of QueryParam Scanner and v0.1 of the qpScanner
Eclipse Plugin are currently considered development releases, and are being made
available so that they can be tested and any bugs that might exist can be found
- if you are unwilling to use pre-release software you should wait until the
If you do get the Eclipse Plugin, or even just qpScanner on its own, I
welcome any and all feedback you might have - whether to report bugs you have
found, request new features you would like, or simply to let me know that works
with your local setup.
