A couple weeks back, Adobe posted their ColdFusion 8 public beta.    One of the big new features is, as Adobe puts it:

Native support for .NET objects to easily integrate ColdFusion applications with enterprise data and infrastructure services.

Yes, you can call .NET assemblies from ColdFusion ML.  Wayne tells me that's JNBridgePro under the hood.

There's been some pickup of this news by others.
