What's new in Railo 3.2
Two of the main focuses for this release were the extensibility of Railo and the caching options. We have introduced a set of new tags and functions and of course we fixed several bugs collected in our bug tracking system. Many of the new improvements and features raise Railo Server 3.2 to a must have update. Here’s a list of things we have introduced and improved in Railo Server 3.2:
AJAX tags & functions, MAP support
Our thanks for these extensions go to Andrea Campolonghi who single-handedly created all the new tags that come with these functions
Auto Import CFC’s
These CFC’s provide script support for several protocol-based tags, such as cfmail. Many thanks here to Andrea Campolonghi and Mark Drew.
Full scripting support with enhancements
New caching features
Railo 3.2 implements the new CFML cache functions and extends them by allowing the defininition of several caches per context globally (server admin) or locally (web admin).
Next to the normal RAM, Railo supports several different Cache engines such as Memcached and EHCache as well as several NoSQL databases like: CouchDB (Mark Drew), Membase, MongoDB and Riak (all Andrea Campolonghi)
