I love developing in ColdFusion, but one of the reasons I spend time learning other languages/frameworks is so I can get a feel for what things others are doing that could help make our jobs a little easier.

I finally got around to updating the CFWheels Textmate bundle to version 1.02 last night. Its mostly a few fixes related to snippets but the primary reason for updating it was to add full support for the DBMigrate plugin.
