ICEGen not being released. Project discontinued.
When CF8 was released I was really excited since it looked like my dream would finally come true with CFCOMPONENT now supporting OnMissingMethod and implicit creation for structures and arrays. OnMissingMethod works like a champ, but we all know though that implicit creation is broken and doesn’t look like it’s getting fixed anytime soon (Ben had a post saying that it would be fixed soon but we haven’t heard anything and he didn’t respond to my last post on the matter).
Because of this, I basically decided to continue development with the old code of ICEGen. After working on it for the last month I managed to get all the bugs out and it works really well. Thing is though this isn’t the project I’ve envisioned it to be, and I’m having a hard time coming to terms with that it. It’s actually kind of sad when I really sit down to look at it.
So rather then continuing to work and support a project that I can’t stand, I’ve decided to let it die. Hopefully once the implicit creation bugs get worked out, I’ll finally be able to create the ORM that I want. Sorry for anyone who wanted to see 2.0 get release, but it’s not happening.
