Thank you for the update Masterchief.. It is indeed comforting to know that this is being worked on. You will likely get some flack from a few people about your comment quoted above, but you're right.. With the new version looming, adding window dressing right now doesn't make a lot of sense. But we who have invested our own time and effort in learning the ropes and fervently supporting Joomla -- and those of us who want to continue to do so going forward -- need to be comfortable in the knowledge that we won't be left out in the cold when something bad happens. Until you can safely say that it's time to deprecate 1.0, security holes MUST be patched. One really bad black eye could quickly undo much if not all the work and goodwill that has gone into making Joomla the respected, secure platform it is.
Way too many times in my career I have seen people and organizations pay ridiculous amounts of money only to get screwed to the wall by the company they paid for the privelege. Rational folks realize that Joomla is open source and there's not a nice, fat developers payroll to dangle over your heads to get the job done faster. We just don't want to be forgotten and left behind for the next big, twinkly object.
Thank you again for what you are doing!
