By now most in the CF world (who are connected to community news, at least) should have heard that today is the last day Adobe will be offering a release of CF 9 including Verity, and CF8 at all. I offer here a little more news on that, but more important I offer how you can still find and get those downloads if you want them, even when no longer listed as links on the site. They're now no longer easy to find.
(And I have updated the entry as of Aug 3, 2012, and all below still applies, unless stricken out.)
First, as for what's changing, it's that Adobe has to "pull from the shelves" any releases of CF that include Verity. But while many have been asserting that CF9 was going away, that's not true. And even CF8 can be obtained formally under certain conditions.
But I also offer here some ways you may be able to get these files even if Adobe no longer offers links to them.
But let's tackle a few points of common misinformation this week.
