  1. LDEV-257 https://luceeserver.atlassian.net/browse/LDEV-257 is a
    show-stopper for us, even for testing purposes. Hopefully there’ll be
    progress on this soon.

I’ve been using lucee 4.5.x for a year with no problems.

I tried upgrading to lucee 5 today. I found the new lucee 5 on tomcat has
some different directory organization and some new things it wants
permission to do, so I’ll have to reconfigure the apparmor profile to
re-lock it down. With apparmor set to complain mode, I installed the
tomcat installer version: 5.0.0.178-beta and the install worked fine.

Then upgraded it to 5.0.0.219-RC by downloading the patch and jar files and
replacing both files. You can’t just use the patch, it told me it needed a
new jar too. At least, it showed a friendly error message for that - thank
you.

I redid my changes to tomcat’s server.xml and web.xml and set-env.sh
restarted lucee, and then tested the lucee admin.

After verifying my settings were right, I ran my application, and it
worked. I didn’t have to redo my whole config at the lucee web level, it
was able to reuse the config / directory from lucee 4.5, which saved some
steps - thank you.

I ran a good chunk of my sites/code, and so far it seems like this release
of Lucee 5 has no visible problems for me after a few minutes of testing.

The tomcat logs are also clean, no start-up errors.

I’ll be limited to using it only for the development server until I can
build it myself. I will report any issues if I notice behavior changes /
errors.

It’s been a long wait for 5, and it’s exciting that you’re close to a
release. Good work!

FYI: We haven’t experienced any problems with Lucee 5 for the past 3 weeks
on this release candidate. I’ve been developing with it every day. I
haven’t explored any new CFML features so I don’t know if they are working
as expected.

Is the Lucee 5 page here the best way to determine what the new features
are?
http://docs.lucee.org/guides/lucee-5.html

I was stuck on the build process not working before, hopefully I’ll be able
to do a custom build at some point.

My company has finally found/hired some developers to work with me on our
Lucee / CFML applications. They are catching on pretty quick to CFML.On Wednesday, March 16, 2016 at 8:20:28 PM UTC-4, Andrew Dixon wrote:
