Lords of the Blackstone

I had an entry entitled ColdFusion MX Blackstone Alpha posted on 2004/04/14. As the name suggests, it's about the next version of ColdFusion MX (7.0) code name Blackstone which is currently on alpha. Being a big fan of and a developer on ColdFusion platform, I do what most developers do: read the new features and install the distribution. And like what most developers will not do: read the use-of-software agreement. The latter caused me trouble a month later.

This next version of ColdFusion MX includes lots of great new features that I couldn't resist but to share my excitement on my blog. Exactly a month from my post (ya, I know, my blog is very little known) I received response from Macromedians stating the post is in violation of NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement) for the alpha distribution.

I must say I was both shocked and embarrassed by my seemimgly innocent act. A reader of the entry was quick to point out that the content of the post was indeed found in some other posts by Macromedians themselves including: Forta's and the new one, Buntel's . I merely repeated the new features and nothing "secret" was revealed as far as I'm concerned. Of course I was suggested to remove the entry and I did.

Now, I'm not denying the NDA violation but I think you have to be the Lords in order to talk about the Blackstone.
