I see some were brought to the devs attention by @batpool52!
That was lovely to read, especially after reading about his previous ties to the warez scene. Glad to see it looks like you've turned over a new leaf and it's benefitting the core product of XenForo and the sites that use it as a result.
Are there any plans to include auto patching in XF 1.6 or 2.0?
Wordpress seem to have implemented that pretty well now. I've noticed the last few security updates had already downloaded and installed automatically upon logging into my Wordpress ACP after receiving the email update. I didn't have to lift a finger, I guess it was immediately pushed out to all qualifying installs.
It's seems like an excellent feature to help keep the install secure. Especially if an admin lapses on updates for days, weeks or months, which is easily done depending on the size of the site or how often it's updated. Would probably reduce the number of support tickets too I imagine if it was a major security update that hadn't been applied.
