Prototype 1.7 Released!!!!!!

I can't believe this got by me for so many days. I think it shows how burnt on work I am, regardless, while working on a new project today I went to go check on my favorite js framework Prototype and saw that 1.7 has been released.

There is over 50 improvements since the last stable version, the addition of the Sizzle selector engine by default and the new Element#on method which rocks!

You can read more here: Prototype 1.7 updates

The cool thing is that there is even more planned already for future releases and resuming work on 2.0!

So what are you waiting for? Go get and start playing!

CFBuilder Navigator Filters and Starting with -clean parameter on a MAC

So basically today I wanted to add new navigator file filters to my CFBuilder workspace and came up with this great post from Jason Dean.

Jason Dean : Adding more resource navigator filters to ColdFusion Builder Eclipse

In short here are the quick instructions:
  1. Go to the Plugins Directory of your CFBuilder install
  2. Grab the file com.adobe.ide.coldfusion.ui_1.0.0.274293.jar - might be named different due to your install - basically the last numbers is your current CFBuilder build
  3. Move the file somewhere you can work, like your desktop
  4. Unzip the file - remember a jar file is just a zip and you should not have any trouble unzipping on your mac (if windows just change .jar to .zip)
  5. In an editor open up plugin.xml and


Find the filter pattern block and add your custom filters there like so (below are the 2 I did) ...

Then in the properties file just add a description for each of your new entries (filter.description.#)

Once you are done you have to place them back into your jar file, so in a terminal window run the following command. (This is assuming you have both of your files in the same directory as your jar)

Now in Jason Dean's post he states that you may have to start Eclipse or CFBuilder with the -clean parameter, which cleans and reinitializes the Workspace and I came up with this post from Adobe.

Clean and reinitialize workspace

Basically in a terminal window navigate to the Contents/MacOS/ path inside the app like so ...
