Ok, I see that in the last "patchfile" this functioncall was removed.
My sites are all on the "stable" SP7, and there this function is still called, but the function itself is deprecated (and doing nothing)..
My thoughts about these patches..
I think it is real shame we have no information about the complete why these patches being provided..
For me a patch from SP7 to SP7 is not an important one.
Without knowing what is updated in a patch every "service pack" or "revision" update seems a minor update.
I would really like to update my customer websites with updates, but without anyone explaining why I should upload a patch (and login as superuser, and run an upgrade script) and giving me a very good reason I will not spend days to update everything.
I also want/need to inform my customers why their website received a patch or update, but I feel really stupid that I have to tell them I do not know why I updated their site.
I know there are many more WB users that cannot afford to do minor updates to their many customer websites, so if it does not seem very important updates are not done!
It is is not known what is updated, there is no way to test effectively the customer website to see if the update created any new problems (happened too much in the past)
Rumors about new WB version/SP/revision updates being tested will stop me spending time to patch websites. This will be just too expensive. A soon as I am ready with updating all of them I would have to start over with the next patch.
