Hello again Lucites. Happy summer to everyone. Here in the Rocky Mountain region of the U.S., the first official day of summer included a snow storm that dropped 2 feet of snow. Hopefully your summer is off to a more summer-y start!
The Lucee shipping machine continues to crank out releases. Today we’re announcing the next Release Candidate, Lucee 184.108.40.206.
(Visual of the Lucee shipping process…)
Here’s the list of tickets covered by this release:
As always, please grab a copy from the downloads site and test the bejeezus out of it, and send us any and all feedback. Schedule-wise, the July sprint is just around the corner (kicking off next Monday, July 1), so this will be another stretch where the RC period and a current sprint overlap (summer schedules, you know). In early August, we’ll make 5.3.3 a final release, and we’ll also put out a 5.3.4 RC at the same time. There’s still room in the July sprint, so if you’ve got a ticket you’d like addressed, please let us know, and we’ll do our level best to get it done.
Looking ahead to the rest of the year, we’ll have a very busy schedule of activities. CFCamp is celebrating a 10th anniversary this year (!!), so you won’t want to miss this party. In addition to keeping up with our regular release schedule, we’re also starting to put more attention on Lucee 6, and, in a perfect world, we’ll have an alpha or perhaps even a beta ready to share by then. We’ll have an update on the rest of 2019 release plans, including Lucee 6, as soon as we have some solid info to share.
Kudos once again to our small-but-mighty team of Lucee developers, other staff/volunteers, and community technical supporters! Please direct all questions, comments, or other arrows at the large target I happily wear on my back. Thanks for listening!
Great work, guys. Let’s get this tested!
For you CommandBox users out there, just run this to give the new RC a spin
220.127.116.11-RC? is that a URL typo?
Lol, yes sorry. I had copied an old one and updated it in a Slack conversation which I used to paste here but I guess my clipboard still had the old one. Updated.
Got to love the progress. I just pray that the concurrency issues with query-caching (something RamCache related) may get addressed soon. We’re on 18.104.22.168 right now and the stability problems may force us to downgrade to 5.2 again, which used to be rock solid in the same setup. I filed and updated an issue to that effect last week and I am confident that you’ll find and fix this bugger eventually.
Keep up that excellent work!
Edit: Sorry, and thank you Zac_Spitzer, I forgot to link the ticket in question:
We had another crash of one of our servers just an hour ago while I was on the Autobahn. I took precautions yesterday, i.e. I now have a way to trigger a clean Tomcat restart remotely from my iPhone, but the “have you tried turning it off and on again” approach doesn’t sit all too well with our users, so downgrade to 5.2 it is early next week unfortunately. But I have faith that this is going to be resolved in one of the upcoming sprints and I’ll do my very best to assist in any way I can.
Couple of tickets holding us up:
The following is set to deployed but this is still a problem beyond JDK 11.0.1 - Might be the case until JDK 13. Not sure if anything can be done at the Lucee end as a workaround.
Great progress, and loving the Docker focus.
Sadly we’re still stuck on earlier versions because of things like https://luceeserver.atlassian.net/browse/LDEV-2132 (createObject() is broken)
Thanks @thefalken. Re: 2132, that one has already been triaged, as has related ticket 2317, and, both appear to be recent regressions, so hopefully that all adds up to a near-term fix. We’ll investigate and confirm ASAP. @isapir @micstriit
