What's New With 6.5.x

July 9th, 2021

Compatibility Notes

Please note that the following ticket corrects behavior in ColdBox that MIGHT affect interceptors that have injected dependencies that have the same name as application helper methods from other modules.
// inject cbauth so we can use it in our interceptor
property name="auth" inject="provider:[email protected]";
function preProcess( event ) {
writeDump( auth.isLoggedIn() );
The interceptor above has a dependency of auth from the cbauth module. However, the cbauth module also has an application helper called auth. So at runtime, this will throw an exception:
Routines cannot be declared more than once.
The routine auth has been declared twice in different templates.
ColdFusion cannot determine the line of the template that caused this error. This is often caused by an error in the exception handling subsystem.
This is because now we can't inject the cbauth mixin because we already have a cbauth dependency injected. The resolution, is to RENAME the injection variables so they don't collide with module application helpers.

6.5.0 Release Notes - July 9th, 2021

ColdBox HMVC


COLDBOX-1021 fix lastBusinessDay tests to reflect if the now is the actual last business day of the month
COLDBOX-1020 ColdBox does not allow for non-existent client cookies when using Flash RAM
COLDBOX-1019 ACF 2021 introduced getTimezone() so we need to be specific when getting timezones in the scheduler or else it fails
COLDBOX-1016 CF-2018 stats.lastResult is null when task->call have runEvent("xxxx")
COLDBOX-1015 Element cleaner not matching on query strings due to misordering of map keys. Use a TreepMap to normalize ordering so event caching and view caching cleanups can ocur.
COLDBOX-1014 response object cached response was never used, rely on the master bootstrap ColdBox cache response header
COLDBOX-1013 RendererEncapsulator overwrites view()-Method from FrameworkSupertype
COLDBOX-1010 this.nullSupport = true breaks coldbox
COLDBOX-1008 ScheduleTask listeners are only testing for isClosure() and lambdas return false, so do an or check for isCustomFunction() to support lambdas
COLDBOX-1007 scheduled task doesn't listen to when() in Scheduler.cfc
COLDBOX-1004 Custom matchers debug() function not found since it's injected in isolation
COLDBOX-1003 Scheduler service DI constructor argument was using the string literal instead of the string value for the scheduler name
COLDBOX-1002 added this scope to getTimezone() to address issue with ACF-2021 bif
COLDBOX-1001 category not logged correctly in async loggers


COLDBOX-1023 Readjustments to fail fast and reloading procedures when there are exceptions and reiniting becomes impossible.
COLDBOX-1018 Enable proxy to use the ColdBox app key defined in the bootstrap instead of hard coding it
COLDBOX-1017 Delay loadApplicationHelpers() in interceptors so modules can contribute udf helpers and even core interceptors can load them.
COLDBOX-1012 Move coldbox inited flag to after after aspects load, so we can make sure all modules are loaded before serving requests
COLDBOX-1009 RESTHandler capture JWT TokenException to authentication failures


CACHEBOX-68 BlackHoleStore never finishes reap() method


LOGBOX-63 Allow for dbappender to have default column maps instead of strict maps and allow for all methods to use the maps

New Features

LOGBOX-64 Ability to add new appenders after config has been registered already
