Allaire are about to release a stunning publishing system, called Spectra, designed for sites like which publish information without hard-coding HTML for each article.

Spectra is interesting on two fronts. Firstly, it's built entirely in ColdFusion, and secondly, it's around 10% of the cost of equivalent systems such as StoryServer and Broadvision.

To find out more about Spectra, see Allaire's site.

To get developers up to speed about Spectra, Allaire are holding a number of teleconferences through October & November. The video is delivered by Web, and the audio by conference telephone call (toll-free in the US). For more info, see
