    That refers to hashing. So does that mean that the vB5 system uses hashing rather than encryption?

    Yet now we have people saying calendars are urgently needed. I'm sure some people have a genuine need for them, but I have hardly ever seen them used. I don't see them used as often as blogs and social groups, and thosed are quite rarely used in themselves.
    We've been using the calendar for years...we use the blogs as well. What made the calendar easier to use (for us) was when the navigation manager was introduced in vB4 because it made it easier to find. I can't understand why anybody would *not* want a calendar.

    We've never had much success with the social groups.

    Mark said VB 4.x is only getting PHP updates, which is basically true- an occasional small bug might get a fix here or there.

    That is different from "security updates" which you claimed and I corrected. VB 4.x is getting more than security updates as it is getting PHP updates.

    Something equally ridiculous is you can't spell check, cut text or directly access the clipboard when using Firefox here.

    Compare the backup from vb4 and vb5.
    Specially table posts and users. I think can be roll back manually.
    Probably users' passes are encrypted different way so all users should have to change them again.

    No you were not. Please stop misrepresenting what I said to you in the support ticket system.

    In that ticket I said "vBulletin 4 does not receive active development any longer, as it is not the current product."
    What that means is that we're not actively developing it...features aren't being added, the product is not "in development" in the way that vB5 is.
    That's not the same as no security fixes, and it's not the same as updating it for php version compatibility.

I'm not sure any firm decision has been made what may or may not happen to the 4.x line in the future. I would say major changes are likely off the table but other than that I don't think anyone is saying for sure. At one time we thought 3.x was only getting security updates, but then it get updates for PHP 5.4 and beyond.
