Lucee Stable Release

The Lucee team is proud to release one of our quickest releases to date.

This is a just bug fix / regression release, mainly QoQ related, mainly due to a major upgrade to the underlying HSQLDB library version from 1.8.0 (2009) to 2.7.2 (2023) requiring some additional code changes due to it becoming stricter

Lucee ORM is no longer being developed or bundled by the Lucee Team, Ortus have forked and taken over the development of ORM for Lucee, see Introducing: The Ortus ORM Extension.

Anyone having problems with legacy SFTP algorithms no longer working, see [LDEV-4621] - Lucee

You can still install the Lucee versions or use the Ortus one, we just aren’t bundling it in the standard distribution anymore.

Plus @justincarter has updated our docker images, including JRE versions which are 100mb smaller, so we are now essentially CVE free.

Previous Release


Looking good here on some basic smoke tests across a couple of projects.

Don’t suppose any one has tested Masa on it yet ?

One who might have done that could be @GuustNieuwenhuis . I’'ve learnt from the last cfcamp that he is the Masa Guy!

Running in live on one older non-Masa project at present. Some minor glitches with S3 support but it’s for a very minor feature so we’ve just turned it off for the time being.

We haven’t tested this specific version yet. I’ll make sure we’ll get to this in the coming days/weeks. But looking at the change log, I don’t expect problems.

A post was split to a new topic: Can Ortus ORM Extension support spatial column format?

We’ve got a small Masa site running on Lucee v5.4.2.17 with no issues
