New ColdFire Release

I just uploaded a new version of ColdFire to RIAForge. This release is an extension only update so there is no need to update the server bits.

Here is a quick rundown of what is new/fixed:

  • Total execution time is now shown on general tab.
  • Users can choose to have the execution times tab show the totals at the top, using the new "Exec Time Totals on Top" option.
  • Fixed issue where components with no methods would break variables output.
  • Fixed user preferences (selected options) so that they are now persisted.

Also, one thing I noticed while working on this release is that the variables tab does not correctly display child components. If you have a component that extends another component, you will only see the methods defined on the child component and the display will not indicate that the component extends another component. I'll have to look into what can be done to fix this, but in the meantime it is something to be aware of if you depend on ColdFire to give you the API for a component.

As always, keep the bug reports and feature requests coming.

dickbob's Gravatar I've downloaded and installed Coldfire for the first time today and I must not be getting it.

I've followed the doc's and all seems fine but no content in the Coldfire window. Not even the "General" tab where I would have expected at least some version info as per the RIAforge screenshots.

As there is no forum on RIAforge and no comments are allowed due to those dammed spammers, where can I go for help in finding the errors of my ways :-)

dickbob's Gravatar Sorry, my error :-)

It might be best to be explicit about which of the CF debug options to enable. So, from the doc's, rather than 'Go to your ColdFusion Administrator, enable debugging...' it should be 'Go to your ColdFusion Administrator, check the "Enable Request Debugging Output" option...'.

@dickbob - I'll update the docs to be a bit more specific. Thanks for the feedback. If you have any other issues feel free to use the bug tracker or contact project features of the RIAforge site.
