Macromedia will ship ColdFusion MX 7 this week, improving support for mobile applications, reporting, document generation and forms development.
“This is really the most significant release of ColdFusion since its inception 10 years ago,” said Dave Gruber, senior product manager of ColdFusion at Macromedia.
Additions to Version 7 include formatted reports, a new event gateway that allows applications to be accessed via mobile phones, the ability to transform Web content into PDF or FlashPaper documents, and the ability to create rich Flash forms. Version 7 will also allow multiple instances of ColdFusion to run on a single computer.
Macromedia said that ColdFusion MX 7 will allow the creation of Flash forms with just a few lines of code.
