I know that I haven't posted in a while (4 months!) but things have been busy with the ColdFusion MX 7 (Blackstone) release, travel and vacation.
The CFMX 7 release is going really great. We have been working to identify the critical issues that users are having and to resolve them as quickly as possible. We have said from the start that this is the most user-driven release of CF ever, and we are trying to back that up with as much follow through from the team on the Macromedia forums and CF mailing lists as we possibly can.
We expect to release our first "Cumulative Hotfix" (which is actually #2) in a short while that will address all of the critical bugs that users have discovered in the past 6 weeks or so.
