ColdFusion 8: System Requirements Matrix Updated

The ColdFusion 8 System Requirements Matrix PDF has been updated on the Adobe Labs site and is available for download. We think this is pretty close to final, so do please take a look.

I'll try to answer any questions posed here, in the private or Public Adobe Beta forums.
