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

Normally in patch releases we do not introduce new functionality. Except if they don't affect the runtime behaviour of Railo Server. With the latest release of Railo Server (3.3.1.007) we have introduced two new features I would like to present in more detail.

For one of our clients we often need to process data in Railo returned
by a query and reorganize them in a Pivot-Table like fashion. Normally
what you have to do is to group queries by recurring values and sum them
up depending on the values in the fields.

Railo is proud to be part of the OpenCF Summit coming up in February 2011 in Garland, TX. We think this is an exciting opportunity for folks to learn more about all aspects of open source software development in the CFML world, as well as learning more about the open source CFML engines themselves.
On day three of the conference, both Railo and OpenBD have extended sessions (90+ minutes) which can dive deep into the engines in various ways. As we're starting to plan that session, we want your input! If you're attending OpenCF Summit, what would you like to hear about in that hour and a half?
Do you want to learn more about the history of Railo? The future of Railo? A deep dive into specific features in Railo? The process behind developing - and contributing to - the engine? Something else?
Let us know in the comments or via email to sean at getrailo dot org (I'll be speaking about CFML and the Open Source Landscape during the main conference track and have another topic submission under consideration - you can vote for proposals and suggestions in the OpenCF Summit "Engage" application).

Railo team has made a final decision to start doing nightly builds / BER on Github ( http://github.com/getrailo/railo ). We will continue to use JBoss SVN ( http://anonsvn.jboss.org/repos/railo/ ) for pushing stable builds. We're now working on creating a build script to make it easier to build Railo.

First off, I wanted to wish everyone a Happy 2010!! Almost 2 weeks late. Better late than never. ;) Railo Open Source has come a long way since the open source release on March 31st, 2009 and we hope to make 2010 even more interesting for the community.
For those of you that aren't on the mailing list, you may be unaware that Jordan Michaels of Vivio Technologies fame has stepped up to be the Volunteer Community Deployments Coordinator for Railo last month. Jordan Michaels and Andrea Campolonghi have been busy ever since getting the new Installers project up and running. Keep in mind that this is a Community effort and the Railo team is very appreciative of Jordan's time in helping the CFML Community become a better place as he's also very active with the Open BlueDragon installers as well.
Be sure to keep tabs on http://projects.getrailo.org/, you may find some interesting hosted projects now and then.
