In the event you’re lively in social media you might have heard the information already, however for many who aren’t, Adobe has began to open the prerelease program for the following CF model, aka ColdFusion 2023–though recognized for now formally by its code identify, Challenge Fortuna. You will discover out extra (and request to affix) the prerelease program at its web page on the Adobe prerelease website (the place you will notice in addition to all types of prereleases for different Adobe merchandise).
For now, solely the Alpha has been introduced, and the variety of registrants allowed could also be restricted.
For extra on that and in regards to the prerelease (what could be gleaned/shared publicly), learn on.
Brushing up in your greek ABC’s
It is described at the moment as being an “alpha” (regardless of the phrase “beta” within the URL above), which might imply it is a very early construct (not even launched there but). Usually, that will be adopted by a extra polished “beta” in time, then finally the “remaining” launch. (In the event you by no means knew, alpha and beta are the primary two letters within the greek alphabet.)
FWIW, Adobe people stated on the Adobe CF Summit in October that we must always count on that remaining launch someday within the first half of 2023 (thus the final reference to the product identify as CF2023).
As at all times, and particularly with Adobe being a public firm, any such statements are very fastidiously worded and typically frustratingly obscure. We simply need to learn the tea leaves and be taught what we are able to.
The primary rule of struggle membership is…
Certainly, just like the traditional film Combat Membership, a primary rule of collaborating within the prerelease is that we comply with an NDA that signifies we won’t share publicly something we be taught through the prerelease (except it is okay’ed by Adobe to launch the information). So some might surprise why I can share this information that I’ve. First, once more in case you go to that Adobe prerelease web page (and login), you will notice what prerelease packages DO exist.
Second, the information was shared on the CFML Slack channel (whose content material just isn’t below any NDA). If you would like to learn what CF Evangelist Mark Takata needed to say, see his submit there. And in case you’re not but a member of the CFML Slack but, you’ll be able to be part of through this automated registration mechanism (no should be “invited”, and many others. as on some Slack channels). (Or in case you merely need to see Mark’s submit and the thread associated to it, with out becoming a member of the Slack channel, you’ll be able to see it additionally through this public feed right here.)
FWIW, Mark has indicated there that the Alpha could be restricted to 200 people. It isn’t clear if that might be expanded through the alpha, although it absolutely could be through the beta.
The place to search out extra information, over time
All that stated, there have been no additional particulars provided about what the brand new launch will BRING (or change), apart from some broad bullet factors provided on the CF Summit Keynote in October (which I did not observe and have not seen others share). However we must always count on extra information to be shared in time, in varied locations:
Once more, for now I needed to at the least get this preliminary phrase out through one more outlet, right here on my weblog. 🙂
