FuseTalk Version 3.1 Records Stellar Performance on ColdFusion 8

From the Press Release:

"This significant upgrade has been fully tested on ColdFusion 8 with stellar performance improvements noted across the entire application. Average page time and requests per second turned in a whopping 50% improvement from version 7 to 8."

The Press Release from FuseTalk is HERE.

Greg Waite, CEO of FuseTalk is quoted in the Press Release:

"Adobe's ColdFusion 8 is a real break-through product for the Web community at large -- it offers incredible flexibility, performance and stability."

"Add the power of ColdFusion to run across multiple platforms, simplify complex web development and provide enrichment and extensibility to other standards such as JAVA, .NET, Exchange, Flex and AJAX and PDF, and you have a powerful winning combination for building WEB 2.0 communities." Waite added.

I think ColdFusion 8 is a definite winner, judging by the early feedback. Organizations seem to increasingly be looking for technologies that deliver dramatic power and productivity gains as they embark on new Web 2.0 Flex and AJAX Web application projects, and ColdFusion 8 is apparently just what the doctor ordered to build these applications within existing IT J2EE and .NET infrastructures, quickly and easily.

Add in the tremendous performance gains we delivered in ColdFusion 8, with highly optimized native compilation to super tight Java VM bytecode, and organizations can not only develop powerful new Web 2.0 applications faster than ever, but can also run them as native, fastest-ever, highly scalable J2EE applications as well.

Viva Adobe ColdFusion.

ColdFusion e-Cards

I have no comment on this, other than to say....we love Ben, he obviously loves Adobe ColdFusion, and this appears to use ColdFusion 8's imaging capabilities :)
