According to Adobe's blog site, they will be announcing details about the launch of the new Creative Suite (CS3) on March 27. So Adobe is officially announcing they will say something in an annoucement about the new release. Seems a little Monty Python-ish, but I know I'm excited anyway.

This release is said to be "largest software release in Adobe's 25 year history."

Adobe will present details via a live web cast from New York City at 3:30 pm.  More details about the webcast will follow later this week, so stay tuned and make sure to mark this one in your calendar!

Vista and ColdFusion Server

I upgraded to Vista and almost immediately needed to run ColdFusion pages. I didn't find much on the internet that explained ColdFusion server installation and configuration on a Vista box and indeed, ran into some sticky problems when I tried to use the install program (since it was intended for IIS6).

When I finally got all my ducks lined up and had the ColdFusion server running smoothly with Vista and IIS7, I figured I better write about it since I'll never be able to remember all the steps ... there are missing DLLs, a confusing little Vista bug, and new mappings to be defined in IIS7.

Check out my free article, which takes you step by step through the process, explaining all the little gotchas along that way that you'll need to deal with.
