Last week, most of the Railo team were at the cf.Objective() conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This is a great conference for us as we love showing the new things we have been working on to a live audience.
This year, we had the opportunity to show off some of the great new features of Railo 4.0 which we will be releasing a public beta in June. But this year was also special, we had a different announcement to make and this is what we are really excited about.
Railo Technologies, the company behind Railo Server is evolving. We have been working with a number of companies in Europe and the US to bring to you a new entity called "The Railo Company". This new version of Railo Technologies will be the next iteration of our plans to bring to you the best CFML Server platform, not just for the next few years but to guarantee the development of the Railo Server for the next 10 years and more.
The investors are a range of European companies that have been delivering CFML based solutions for many years and with their support and knowledge we can see a bright future ahead.
Some of the companies are well known to you, some not so much so, but our investors are:
Gert Franz, CEO of Railo Technologies said:
This is a watershed moment for Railo as we can now promise the continued quality and innovation that has marked Railo’s development to date and ensure the global market that Railo is here to stay.
I am very happy with the newly founded Railo company and the trust the investing companies around the world put into us. It will give us the unique opportunity to guarantee the existence of CFML for the next 10-15 years. Lots of companies have invested heavily into CFML, trained and educated their staff and released lots of software based on CFML.
This venture allows them to continue trusting what I truly think is the best development platform for the web.
What will change for you?
Nothing will change for most of our users, you will be getting the same Open Source engine, but now with added resources dedicated to adding features, fixing bugs and providing documentation. We will be announcing a number of incentives and licensing options over the next few months.
What is a major boon is the knowledge that you will have a stable company, with strong backers with no hinderance to the brand itself.
In essence what we are saying to all CFML developers is:
CFML is HERE TO STAY
We are MARKETING it
We are SUPPORTING it
We are DEVELOPING it
For the next 10 years and foreseeable future

Jordan Michaels recently posted news about the Railo Installer on the Railo-Beta mailing list, I thought I'd share on the blog:
Have you ever wanted to add new sites to your Railo setup without having to mess with adding the new site to Tomcat, restarting, and then making sure everything was working? Well, now you can!
The Railo Installer Patch Level 1 (pl1) release of Railo 3.2.2.000 - now in BETA - includes the option to install the VHost Copier along with Railo. The VHost Copier was written by Railo Team Member Paul Klinkenberg and automates the process of copying a new site configuration from Apache or IIS into Tomcat. No need to modify the server.xml file yourself, and no need to cause server down time with a Tomcat restart.
The VHost Copier module is manageable and upgradeable via the web-based Railo Server administrator, and can be removed at any time should you decide you do not want to use the VHost Copier at a later date.
Beta Downloads are available here:
Release Notes here:
Details about the VHost Copier are here:
Huge thanks to everyone involved in making this release: Paul Klinkenberg, the Railo Team, and the Installer Translation Team. Thank you! If any on this list are willing, we'd love to hear some feedback on it!

Andy Jarrett recently posted that he forked Matt Woodwards's CFPOI project and completed a new railo extension, cfspreadsheet and needs your help testing. If you're in the need of excel / spreadsheet functionality inside of Railo, head on over and follow his instructions.
This is another great example of the community stepping up and filling in functionality. Thanks Andy!
Gert Franz announced at CF.Objective(ANZ) that Paul Klinkenberg has recently accepted a position as a volunteer. Please welcome Paul to the team! Paul will be focused on the Railo Server Open Source Extensions and working to keep the framework extensions up to date.

Quite often people use the CFLOCATION tag in Railo/CFML and they would like to know how a user actually got to this page and where from. So I created a CFC based custom tag that logs all this.
