Reports are coming in that ColdFusion 8 can't communicate with the latest version of Apache on Leopard. No fix or word from Adobe as to if or when a hotfix might be available.
Worse, it appears that ADC (Apple Developer Connection) developers who have been getting Leopard seeds prior to its release have known about the problem since August.
On their website, Adobe released a document [PDF] outlining any products that might have compatibility issues with Leopard. Conspicuously absent is any mention of Adobe's red-headed stepchild, ColdFusion.
In the meantime, if you want Leopard and need to do ColdFusion development, you might consider running ColdFusion under Windows using Parallels Desktop. Running Parallels gives you multiple virtual machines and configuration environments, and running Windows gives you access to SQL Server and also to Internet Explorer for browser compatibility testing.
With Leopard Server now shipping as well, I sincerely hope that Adobe gets its act together and rolls out a fix pronto. Given their response time and attitude concerning the Intel shift, however, I'm not holding my breath.
But there's also a bright side: Leopard came bundled with nice new copies of Ruby and Python pre-installed, in addition to upgrading Apache Server from 1.3 to 2.2.
At least we'll have something to play with while we wait... (grin)
Mark Drew seems to have found a solution for those that can't wait for an official fix from Adobe. Good work Mark!
