In the last time there had been some official statements which irritated me. On of this irritating statements concerns the vulnerability of the soon coming WB version 2.8.4. and I am not sure if I understand the situation, planning and strategy right.
As I understand this posting:http://forum.WebsiteBaker.org/index.php/topic,28383.0.html
the leading developer @darkviper announce that she official confirm that she knews, that using the module fckeditor is not safe on all systems WB is built for. And as I understand it right she official announce that this vulnerability will not be fixed for WB? (Please correct me if I got it wrong!)
Well. Version 2.8.3 is a Version with limited lifetime now. Changing standard modules within a version may be problematic. But as I appreciated the soon coming Version 2.8.4 is still planned with the same unsave module and the same (obviously) known security problem.
From different discussions in the forum over the last two years (or more?) the wb development team know, that the fck editor is not longer supported by the authors of this special software and the authors themselves recommend not to use this outdated software any longer. A working alternative is prepared and working for/in WB for years now: CKEditor!
The normal way of software development in such situations is to replace old and not longer supported unsafe software modules with the ready developed and working follow-up module. As this will not happen I wonder myself(!) if there are personal reasons to hold on outdated and unsure software or if it is only a non-appreciation of the way modern software is developed (which I cannot believe myself and don’t(!) want to assume for the WB team!!!!).@darkviper
As main developer please could you explain the reason why the next WB version 2.8.4 is brought to the users unsual from modern software standards with known unsafe modules and what the real (very important?) reasons for this strange strategy are?
Or please - if I don’t understand the situation right and the fck will be replaced by ckeditor or another safe editor module in the next WB version – correct me and tell us what will happen. Or will there maybe be a different support for WB on different platforms? Which platforms will be supported safe platform and which platforms will not be (longer?) supported?
Thank you for further information to the future of WB. And I am looking forward for a save version
