After a long beta cycle, ColdFusion 8.0.1 is now available!

The updater incorporates a heap of fixes and enhancements which you can read about in the release notes (PDF) and FAQ. Notably, 64-bit support has been added to almost every platform – a feature that many organisations were waiting for – and JDK support has been upgraded to Sun Java SE JDK 6 Update 3, version 1.6.0_03.

The third party libraries from Yahoo, ExtJS and FCKEditor have been updated, so the built in Ajax components now support the Webkit/Safari browser. In terms of the core language, the AttributeCollection attribute has been extended, as has structure and array creation syntax, and there are numerous updates to cfdocument, cfexchangecalendar, cfexecute, cfftp, cfimage, cfmail, and cfpdf as well as over 100 bug fixes, including quite a few to ColdFusion Report Builder.

So what are you waiting for – go get it already :)
