Adobe Labs has released ColdFusion Builder Public Beta 3. One of the first things you will notice is they upgraded the code version of Eclipse to 3.5.1 Galileo. For me this was good news since in my normal Eclipse build I’ve switched from the Subclipse plug-in to Subversive which is now part of the Eclipse project, as my SVN client. All you need to do is add the Galileo Update Site (http://download.eclipse.org/releases/galileo). Then select Collaboration --> Subversive SVN Team Provider. You can also choose to select the Subversive SVN Integration for the Mylyn Project at the same time.
If you read the docs, and I really suggest you do, you will notice Adobe also added full AIR development support.
I’ve also noticed a fair amount of improvement in the startup time on both my Mac and my pathetic Windows computer at work.
Also new in Beta 3 is the Adobe Community Help AIR application Beta. Select Help --> ColdFusion Builder Help to launch the AIR application. In addition to being able to search the local help documents it appears this is an AIR application that is a proxy to Adobe LiveDocs and ColdFusion Blogs that are aggregated via Adobe Feeds (http://feeds.adobe.com/) including my blog. The search interface automatically brings up related content from the Adobe help docs and blogs. This makes it much easier to search on a general topic rather than just searching for various CF tags or functions.
So far Beta 3 is looking pretty good. There are still bugs and you can report the bugs you find using the public bug tracker http://cfbugs.adobe.com/bugreport/flexbugui/cfbugtracker/main.html.
That's all for now.
