We are proud to finally release version 1.0.0 of CFConfig.  This library has been in development for nearly two years (20 months) and has had over 100 alpha releases!  CFConfig is already in use for production deploys, development setups and in the Ortus Docker Image.  CFConfig is a CLI tool built upon a set of services that can manage the configuration of your Adobe, Lucee, and Railo servers so you never have to manually setup a server again. 

CFConfig has been a huge effort and has received more pull requests than most of our projects for the time it has existed.  A big shout out goes to the CFML Community for coming together to help make CFConfig a realityWe've had 12 contributors and over 30 pull requests! Contributors include:
