What's New in 4.5.0
The main features of CommandBox 4.5.0 are:
  • Ability to install OpenJDK automatically for your servers to use (read more)
  • Environment Variables in the shell (read more)
  • Support for Forgebox Enterprise (TBA soon)
  • JRE Bundled CommandBox installs now use OpenJDK instead of Oracle JDK
  • TestBox Code Coverage integration (read more)
I already wrote a fairly comprehensive overview of the new features and big fixes here. Go read it:
Note, there are two backwards incompatible changes. The first is we turned OFF directory browsing by default on servers. You can easily get the old behavior back with
1
config set server.defaults.web.directoryBrowsing=true
Copied!
The second is that unhandled errors in the shell no longer show the stack trace (you probably wouldn't have noticed if I didn't tell you!) Get the old behavior back with:
1
config set verboseErrors=true
Copied!
