The first alpha of Taffy version 3.0.0 is ready for public testing!
There was a recent burst of development, thanks to some corporate sponsorship in the form of this conversation with my employer:
"Taffy can do that, right?"
"No, but it's something I've wanted to add for a while."
"Go do it."
There have been a lot of changes and improvements, and one of those is that the documentation now includes a What's new section, so I'm not going to copy over all of that content into the blog post. There are a few breaking changes from 2.x to 3.0 that you should be aware of, but in terms of how long it will take you to update your code, the impact is only a minute or two of your time.
The test suite is fully updated as well, so please run the tests on your environment and report back if you have any troubles! I've verified things are working well on Adobe ColdFusion 8.0.1 and 10u13, and Railo 4.2 (Cheers to Adam Cameron for helping out with this!), but I can't check every platform. As always, if you run into any problems, we've got the mailing list and you can file bug reports.
Also important: If you try out v3 and don't have any problems, please let me know that, too! Silence either means nobody is testing or nobody is having problems, and there's a world of difference.
As always, thank you to everyone that submits bug reports and feature requests, participates on the mailing list, and talks about Taffy in the #ColdFusion channel on IRC. My biggest thanks this time go out to Dan Short, Jean-Bernard van Zuylen, and phipps73 for their pull requests.
If all goes well with the alpha over the next few weeks, I'll release an official v3.0.0 by the end of the month.
