Personally, it’s been a very fulfilling experience to write the documentation for a version one product. The Help pages are open for commenting, so bring on the feedback – I’m looking forward to it! 🙂

Upgrading from Beta release of ColdFusion Builder

If you are upgrading from a Beta release of ColdFusion Builder, make sure that you uninstall the Beta software before installing the released product.


And if you are using ColdFusion Builder with a workspace from a Beta release, make sure that you clean and reinitialize the workspace before installing the release version of ColdFusion Builder.  


Complete details about installing ColdFusion Builder and cleaning and reinitializing the workspace is available in the Adobe ColdFusion Builder Installation Guide.
