 * #335 Cache Manager - If clearKey fires and no object is removed, interceptor still fires when it should not
 * #336 Cache Manager - metadata needs to be same as pool, or weird side effects occur on wrong case insensitive namings!!
 * #337 sessionstorage naming is wrong for case sensitive OS's in several areas
 * #338 ses interceptor - some unusual behavior on unique urls, when using custom routes.
 * #339 ses interceptor - need to test if the path info has a leading "/" before stripping it, else it truncates it anyway

== Version 2.5.1 (December 20 2007) CODENAME: Romans 8:32 ==
 * #314 Serious bug fix for SES + Event Caching. SES was not setting the cacheable entry.
== Version 2.5.0 (December 17 2007) CODENAME: Romans 8:32 ==
 * A major upgrade to our !ColdBox engine, lots of fixes and upgrades.
 * #127 Plugin Upgrade to !JavaLoader 0.5
 * #132 SES Pretty URL support thanks to Coldcourse. SES out of the box!
 * #135 Application.cfc Support, Application.cfm + index.cfm combo still supported but will be deprecated by the 2.7 version. Please update your apps to use the included Application.cfc.
 * #163 Project Interceptors : You can now intercept calls in over 12 execution points of a user request, even the !ColdBox cache. Not only that, but you can also create your own observable execution points and use the API to announce your own interceptions.
 * #164 onSessionStart/onSessionEnd Support added. You now have two new settings in your configuration file: 
 !SessionStartHandler and !SessionEndHandler. You can now easily create events to be fired for these execution points or use interceptions.
 * #183 !ColdBox.cfm  * Migration to Application.cfc support, however Application.cfm is still supported.
 * #186 Custom Bug Report  * Users can define the bug report to email out within the configuration file.
 * #199 Messagebox Custom CSS and Layout Update (messageboxstyleclass setting deprecated) You now have a new setting: !MessageboxStyleOverride [boolean]. You can now just tell the framework that you will be overriding the styles of the messagebox. You can look at the guides or the MessageBox.cfm file to see how to override the styles. (!ColdBox.system.includes.MessageBox.cfm)
 * #202 Code Optimization and better encapsulation. This has caused a side effect on even more stable framework code.
 * #203 Update Samples Gallery Content
 * #222 Request Collection Persistance via !SetNextEvent. You can now pass a comma delimmited list to the setnextevent method of the keys in the request collection that you would like to persist across the relocation. The framework will then reload them in the relocated request collection.
 * #223 Renderer Plugin  * fixes on local naming.
 * #224 New Convention  * Plugins. You can now create your custom plugins with no configuration declaration. Just create a folder called plugins on your application root. The framework will pick this path up for your getMyPlugin() calls. As always, you can change the conventions via the framework settings.xml file or the dashboard.

== Version 2.0.0 ( April 28, 2007 ) CODENAME: JOHN 4:14 ==

 * License change to the Apache License, Version 2.0
 * New !RequestContext bus. This is in order to enable caching and encapsulation of the request collection. Please see the compatibility guide. Your 1.1.0 and below code will have to be modified slightly to accomodate this. All event handler methods receive the requestContext bus object as an argument called 'event'.The object is also called 'event', for the layouts/views.
 * Addition of new Application Settings: 
   * !ReinitPassword: used to protect the fwreinit flag. Usage: fwreinit=password
   * onInvalidEvent: write the event to execute when an invalid event is detected, ehGeneral.dspHome
   * !HandlerCaching: The framework will now cache your event handlers in application scope. Please turn off in development. This is also an intelligent cache. Look at documentation.
   * IOCFramework: You can now declare which framework you are using: coldspring or lightwire.           
   * IOCDefinitionFile: Here is where you declare the configuration file to load onAppInit in conjunction with the IOCFramework declared.
 * !AppMapping setting is now optional, if not set, framework auto calculates.
 * Deprecation of the !AppDevMapping settings.
 * Addition of Complex Settings to the config.xml for Arrays and Structures
   * Arrays use [ ] notation: [1,2,3,4,5]
   * Structures use { } notation: {name:luis,country:el salvador,state:california}
 * Two new implicit methods for event handlers: !PreHandler/PostHandler. If you create these methods in your handlers, then the framework will execute them accordingly.
 * Addition of an 'alias' property to the Datasource element, this is the alias to your name (dsn). This is a mandatory property so please update your XML.
<Datasource alias="blog_dsn" name="myblog" dbtype="oracle" />
 * Coldbox OCM (Object Cache Manager) : A facility for in *memory caching. This facility caches your event handlers, plugins, custom plugins and anything you want. Look at API for usage.
   * The framework has a reap frequency in which once every cycle, the framework will remove objects from the cache that have expired. This way, reaping is not performed on every request. A great way to balance cache access and reaping. Change in the framework's settings.xml
   * Metadata settings for caching for custom plugins and handlers via the cfcomponent tag. The cachetimeout is in minutes. The cache flag is by default set to true if not set. So if you do not set it explicitly to false, the framework will cache it at the default framework's timeout.
   * Cache settings override via config.xml.cfm, please see wiki config guide.
 * Plugins: 
   * Beanfactory.cfc : Addition of the populateBean method. It can now populate a named or instantiated bean from the request collection. Great for setting a bean with form data. It follows the bean contract, thanks to Sanah Ullah
   * !FileUtilities.cfc  : new methods: getJVMFreeMemory(), getJVMTotalMemory(), isCFUUID()
   * IOC.cfc : Added Inversion Of Control support via coldspring or lightwire. Coldspring is the only one supported now. Lightwire will be added in the next version.
   * sessionstorage.cfc  : New facade plugin to use session scope for permanent values
   * renderer.cfc: renderExternalview(). Will render an external view. Any type of view: js,gif,etc.
   * QueryHelper.cfc : New plugin to help you sort and filter queries.
   * timer.cfc : New plugin to help you time your code.
   * New argument to plugin factory: !NewInstance it will create a new instance of the specified plugin. 
 * New debugging Panel with object Cache Monitor
 * Tons of bug fixes, look at trac site.
 * Sample Applications:
   * Updated the entire Illidium CFC Generator by Brian Rinaldi. (Pre Flex)
   * Galleon Forums updated to version 1.7.008
   * !ColdBoxReader now moved to a service architecture using !ColdSpring and !ColdBox new IOC plugin.
   * Transfer Sample Application

 * Messagebox.render(clearFlag) now has a clearFlag in order to clear or not, the message structure after rendering.
 * Eventhandler.cfc code optimization, no longer need of writing an init method. PLEASE REMOVE THEM unless you have any code that needs to be executed every time
  an event is called. Look at:
 * Renderview can now accept a view name as a parameter. You can then render a view anywhere you want, layouts, within views, event handlers, etc, and as content variables. renderView("myTags/main_menu")
 * New Plugins: !FileWriter & !StringBuffer
 * Framework/Application extensions via custom plugins, declared in config.xml.cfm
 * Coldbox Logging Facilities: ColdBox now provides you with a per application logging facility for errors and custom (error|fatal|information|warning) entries by simplify filling out two settings in your config.xml and using the logger plugin.
 * Event Handlers/Plugins now have a "rc" scope available, that is a direct line to the request collection.
 * New Method: paramValue("var name","default") same as cfparam but for the request collection.
 * cfcViewer plugin was revised. You can now use it to render documentation with any stylesheet.
 * New i18n and Resource Bundles Plugins based on Paul Hastings work.
