We are preparing to support [http://lucee.org/ Lucee] in place of Railo, and our team is meeting about the finer points of this process. At this point that's the most detail we can provide, but we will post more info to our Server Status Page once we're ready to officially support '''Lucee'''.

==Background==

The Lucee project was forked from Railo 4.2 in January 2015 and is owned by Lucee Association Switzerland. Though development on Railo has halted, Lucee will eventually inherit the enhancements planned for Railo 5. Currently Lucee operates the same as the latest available version of Railo, so you can migrate your Railo codebase to it without any surprises.
