Adobe ColdFusion Scorpio FAQ and Pre-Release Program Signup

A small Scorpio FAQ, some Scorpio desktop wallpaper and a link to the Scorpio Pre-release program signup survey is available on Adobe Labs here: http://labs.adobe.com/wiki/index.php/Scorpio


See you in the forums "on the inside"...



I hope this time around Adobe focus on things that aren't possible with current CF, or barely possible with some major workarounds. Threading, and please please please, object serialization. It's next to impossible to have true failover without it.

Image manipulation can be done in a thousand other ways with CF. ImageMagick being one of them. If it's good enough for Flickr, It's good enough for me. If it doesn't have some Photoshop magic up it's sleeve, I couldn't care less.

.Net integration? If I wanted .Net, I'd code in .Net.

I think you'll be blown away by how far we've come and what's now in Scorpio.

Sign up for the pre-release program and let's chat more under NDA.


You were right, some killer features in there ;) Great stuff, and a few small but very very important fixes/improvements.

Do you guys have a timeframe on when you will be choosing Beta members? I signed up the end of January and still have not heard anything. If you already have choosen people will we at least get a rejection email?

Sorry for the silence....we're still in "collection" mode right now. We have a milestone coming up, and rather than add people in now, we figured we'd wait till that milestone and send invies at that time.

Shouldn't be too much longer. Again, sorry about that!
