I'm looking forward to playing around with ColdFusion 9 when I get some more time here in a month or so. One of the areas that interests me in particular is the ability to write full CFCs in CFScript syntax.
Over the weekend, I created a couple simple feed aggregators on the ColdFusion on Wheels Community page. I saved major time by using a mashup of Delicious, Yahoo! Pipes, FeedBurner, and the <cffeed> tag in CFML. This was far easier than creating my own feed aggregator by hand.
