Unofficial Updater 2 Updates (APSB12-06)

There have been several updates to Unofficial Updater 2 over the past few days.

  • Support for APSB12-06
  • Adobe truely seems to be getting on a quarterly release schedule for ColdFusion security updates since the last one, APSB11-29, was released on December 13, 2011
  • Given that the last few have been cumulative, UU2 now just applies the latest one following the Section 2 instructions
  • UU2 only needs to be run once with an Internet connection
  • This was a suggestion from Adrian Moreno and was something I had been thinking about doing for a bit
  • On the first run, UU2 will download all the hotfixes and security bulletins for both ColdFusion 8.0.1 and 9.0.1 from Adobe and then pack them into Unofficial-Updater2-with-downloads.jar which can be run later. This was done since UU2 can not directly package the updates from Adobe
  • UU2 will also create unofficial-updater2.txt in <cfusion-home>/lib/updates which will contain the date that UU2 was run and the date the files were downloaded from Adobe
  • Updates for download URLs that Adobe changed
  • Wiki updates
  • Using Unofficial Updater 2 has been updated to reflect the changes in the screens
  • Still putting together the instructions on how to Restore ACF from UU2 Backups

The latest installer is available for download from github.
