Default Forum software update?

Hi,

I noticed the footer says 'vBulletin 3.8.8 Beta 4'... why is the board using out-of-date, non-production software? vBulletin 3 is simple, and there have been several patches since then to fix security bugs and add support for later PHP 5.x and the 7.0 version.

Could the software this site runs on be updated? I honestly don't want to see a security breach thanks to using outdated PHP version or vBulletin.

Thanks for any reply.

That's a good question, and I hope they do update it soon.

Since this site is supposed to be merged with the techist.com site, I doubt the owners will bother upgrading the software here.

The owner(s) have all of their sites running the same version of vB as it makes it simpler to push changes across all of them. While there are newer versions out there this one is rock solid stable.

vB3 is stable, I agree. However, why are we using 3.8.8 beta 4? Emphasis on the words 'beta 4'.

Ah, others tried this before but nothing happened.

I don't think the owners have plans to do it at the moment.

Maybe because previous attempts did not reach the owners?
