I’m at the Webmaniacs conference just quickly writing this before I go and present my own session. Ben Forta just opened the conference with his keynote and he had 2 slides on Adobe’s plans for ColdFusion “Centaur” and I think they are the first public plans. I am not going to comment on them, just a verbatim copy.
