Bug fixes in Adobe ColdFusion (2016 release) Update 5

Known issues in this release

  • On a Linux OS, you are unable to generate a chart in a pdf using the cfdocument tag. You can, however, generate charts in Windows, Solaris, or Mac.
  • ColdFusion 2016 Update 5 installations through the ColdFusion Administrator might fail on certain Linux configurations that include the X Window system. The issue was introduced due to an upgrade to InstallAnywhere 2017. As a workaround, install Update 5 manually with sudo privilege.
