    Seems to be a lot of issues with this update.

    Some discussion on the #Adobe channel on CFML Slack as well as in the comments on the Adobe blogs.

    * Incompatible object argument for function call
    * QueryExecute
    * Permission issues
    * Weird Java update
    * ??

    Update: This is CRITICAL. If you are using cfscript for queries DO NOT install this round of updates. There is a bug that was introduced that breaks getting results back with queryExecute().

    Adobe is working on the bug and has provided a Hot Fix jar for some of us to test. This bug and testing is still in progress.

    I'll update this again when the bug is resolved.
