Thanks to Dave Shuck's post about Ben Forta's presentation at Dallas/Fort Worth CFUG, I now know a lot more about CF8 than I did before. He has a long list of new features, but the two I'm most excited about are inline arrays and structs! Dave showed a couple of examples:

<cfset MyArray = ["CFIMAGE","CFWINDOW","CFPOD","CFMENU"] />
<cfset MyStruct = {Name="Dave",FavoriteLanguage="CFML",Cool=true} />

Now, if we could just get closures ... =)
