And I may revise the content as necessary.So perhaps you're currently running CF 9.0 or CF 9.0.1, and you may have noticed that there is a CF 9.0.2. Have you wondered what it's about? And have you noticed that it's not something you can just update to from 9.0 or 9.0.1? It's a complete installer, meaning you need to uninstall CF 9.0 or 9.0.1 before you can move up to it.
Should you? What do you gain? what do you lose? what are some gotchas? That's what this blog entry is about, answering the following questions:
- First, what is ColdFusion 9.0.2? Why did Adobe create it?
- What about the 9.0.1 updater? Can we still get that? Yes.
- So what all does 9.0.2 add and remove?
- If I download CF 9 today, what do I get?
- "But if I download 9.0.2 today, I get the latest version of it available, right? I don't need to add hotfixes, do I?" Wrong.
- Warning: DO NOT install 9.0.1 atop 9.0.2 (nothing will stop you)
- If I am on 9.0 or 9.0.1, how can I get to 9.0.2?
- Why might I want to get to 9.0.2 from 9.0 or 9.0.1?
- How did i miss this? Was 9.0.2 discussed? Yes it was.
