Announcing Lucee 6: Swansea Jack



Fresh from CFCAMP2018 Day 2 Keynote, @gert and @micstriit announce details of the next generation of the Lucee core engine.



The new features are appealing, the new logo is not.


Might have been a bit of poetic license in the slide-deck… there are no plans to update the logo at this time.


The introduction of a headless package via Lambda COMPLETELY changes the game and future-proofs CFML for the foreseeable future. Fantastic work!!! Can’t wait to get the manageless microservicing going with Lucee!!


Any ideas on beta/release in a functional Lambda format?


I like the general direction of a more cloud friendly containerized service.
I have been proposing something like this about four years ago.

Unfortunately, most of our development has move to nodejs for that very reason.


This is where the schizzle will be for Lucee 6;

We’ll do what we can to make packaging and cold starts as sweet :lollipop: as possible. Of course anything we do here will have a knock-on effect for Docker and other deployment scenarios.
