Today at the midday Scotch keynote, Gert Franz and Luc Texier made an impressive announcement: Railo is going completely Open Source.
This is an exciting move both for Railo and for the CFML community as a whole, and I'll be writing more details about it later, but for now here some some quick key details...
There will be two editions of Railo, with the Community and Professional editions combining into one, and the Enterprise edition being the other:
The new Community+Professional edition will be Open Source and there will be no limit to the number of web contexts allowed.
The Enterprise edition will have added value features, including tools from Intergral.
The license will be LGPL2, which means you can distribute Railo along with commercial software.
The timeline for release of the source code is mid to late October, around the time that Railo 3.1 is due for release.
The announcement is online at the JBoss website at www.jboss.org/railo

The highly anticapted next major version of Fusebox has finally been released to the website.
Fusebox 5.5 allows you to use the Fusebox applications without using XML, which should please many people.
Instead of fusebox.xml it checks conventional places for your circuits, and instead of circuit.xml it can either use CFCs, where each function is a fuseaction, or just a directory, where each file is a fuseaction.
It also brings support for dynamic do to both xml and non-xml configuration, which is a feature I've really wanted on a couple of occasions.
Get it while it's hot...
The newest version of Beehive Forum has been released today, with a large selection of new features, improvements, and fixes.
It is very much recommended that users of previous versions upgrade to the latest version without delay - upgrade paths are available from both 0.6.* and 0.7.* so there is no excuse!
For those not familiar with Beehive, it is a superb free and open-source discussion forum system which (in addition to its superior interface) exhibits several rare and unique features which make it a joy to use. For example: there is a relationship system which allows you to ignore others users, or their signatures, or give them amusing nicknames that only you see; each user also has an individiual word filter, with a regular expression option for very powerful filtering; there's a flexible polling system with groupable options, public/private ballot, fixed/changable votes; and many other cool things.
To learn more you can look at the Beehive website, or you can go straight to the SourceForge project page to download it now.
The final release of Railo 2.0 is now available for download from the re-vamped Railo website.
If you've already tried Railo, you'll probably be wanting to head straight to the download page.
