The first CFB Updater is live! Go, get that fast!

I am sure many of you have been waiting for this for quite some time now. We have news to cheer you up. CFB Updater1 inlcudes hotfixes for some of the bothering usability issues like Editor jump issue for long lines with horizontal scroll, code folding misbehavior, out-of-memory issue for very large projects etc; to call out the high visibility ones. So, Happy CFB-ing once again!
As regards the Updater installation, some points to be noted:

  • This is a critical update and Adobe Updater will download the same and prompt the user for installation
  • AdobeUpdater looks for the updates on a weekly basis (can be set to monthly in Adobe Updater Preferences)
  • CFB updater can be manually invoked via Help -> About Adobe ColdFusion Builder updates
  • CFB will update only the latest installation, say if Standalone is installed and one installs CFB as a plugin then only the plugin installation will be updated.
  • Once the updating process is complete, you need to restart CFB with -clean option

Please refer to the technote for information on issues you might hit upon. It also lists the bug fixes that have gone in –

    How do I force the update when CFBuilder doesn’t see the update? When I sudo CFBuilder on OS X, I get “There are no updates available at this time” every time I check for updates. This is on a trial version because I’m still waiting for my vendor to deliver my CFBuilder license.

      I have had been fighting with CFB to install this update for some time (multiple uninstalls and reinstalls on two different late model Macs and nothing worked).

      Just found a downloadable update at http://bit.ly/a6UCn2 that resolved the problem. I had checked this page before and found nothing so I think it must have been finally posted to address the kinds of problems using the Adobe updater that have been plaguing users.

      Good luck with it.

    Having an updates entry on the CFBuilder product page with this listed the way you do for every other product might be a smart idea. Having to stumble over this update from a google search is just silly.

    Nice work though, CFB is much more usable since applying this update.
