Coinciding with the launch of ColdFusion 8 today, Adobe posted a short video on their website highlighting customer reactions to the new release. When I was in San Jose a few months ago, Adobe asked me to participate in the video shoot. It was a lot of fun, and pretty lighthearted.
Here's a link to the video where you can see me showing off my juggling skills (you'll see what it has to do with CF in a moment).

Being on West coast time, I'm always a little late with these announcements these days. In case you haven't already heard, Adobe ColdFusion 8 launched today!
As before, ColdFusion is available in three editions; Developer (free), Standard ($1299), and Enterprise ($7499). Upgrade pricing is also available.
I'm not going to get into all of the new features as they have been getting a lot of coverage already among the various ColdFusion blogs. What I will say, though, is that ColdFusion 8 represents the culmination of an impressive engineering effort on Adobe's part, and is destined to be the best release of ColdFusion yet.
One other thing to note is that some of the features previouslt only available in the Enterprise edition (such as Event Gateways) are now also available in the Standard version of the product, albeit with some performance limiters. To see a full comparison of what's available in each edition, see product editions page.
So, now that ColdFusion 8 is out, how's it going to make your life easier?
