A Look Into ColdFusion's Future: Centaur, Sully?, Link?

Kristin Schofield released a long-overdue Evangelism Kit PDF on her blog today that is basically marketing information about ColdFusion aimed at the Executive level. I found this timeline from page 6 rather interesting. It shows Centaur being released in 2009, but then it goes on to show what I can only assume to be the next two releases of ColdFusion: "Sully", and "Link" in 2010 and 2011 respectively. (See picture) Most Notably, Link lists a "Pluggable Architecture". Hmmm...


from memory, this is the first time the owners of ColdFusion have publicly given detailed the CF roadmap.

and it's a good thing too. it gives enterprise managers some confidence that the platform will be around for a while yet (and developers working with CF the ammunition to say there's no need to switch over to ASP.NET).

I think in the past point releases have also had codenames so you may find that sully is just 9.1.


I hope that 2010 isn't the only time that the 3rd party libraries are going to be updated.

And waiting until 2011 for improved reporting? That's a really long wait.

On the other hand, it is good that they have such a long term plan in place.
