2004 CFEclipse Is Well Worth Trying
CFEclipse is a CFML plug-in for Eclipse (the popular open-source Java IDE originally created by IBM, and now managed by the Eclipse Foundation). The CFEclipse plug-in provides Eclipse with CFML awareness and functionality (code completion, syntax highlighting, code insight, language help, CFC method outline viewing, code problem previewing, and more). I have been using it on and off for a few weeks now, and while it is definitely a work-in-progress, it is also very good (and surprisingly responsive). For more info visit http://cfeclipse.tigris.org/, and for a good getting -started overview visit http://www.dopefly.com/pages/cfeclipse.cfm.

2003 A New HomeSite Is Coming

Information can be found at the HomeSite homepage at http://www.macromedia.com/software/homesite/, new features are listed at http://www.macromedia.com/software/homesite/productinfo/features/.

2003 CFMX 6.1 Tag Support in HomeSite+ and Dreamweaver MX
ColdFusion MX 6.1 adds a few new tags to the CFML language, and makes changes to some existing tags. If you are using HomeSite+ or Dreamweaver MX you can download tag updates so that your IDE is aware of these language changes. The updates can be downloaded from http://www.macromedia.com/software/coldfusion/downloads/ (scroll down, about half way down the page in the right column).
