Users running a non-download version of Vanilla (pulled from github), on branch release/2019.016 or master from the last 2 weeks should upgrade to release/2019.017 or latest master for security reasons. Downloaded official open sources releases are not affected.

What to do with or about unsupported plugins?

I was wondering if there may be an archive to place all unsupported plugins . That may be a good way to not commingle . But I do like the idea of having them around even if it is to learn something.

    Something like a legacy repository?

    You say "Lincoln, delete this plugin" and I go "OK" and do it.

    Save 'em for posterity on GitHub, not where non-technical users can find them.

    @Lincoln are all the addons uploaded stored in a repository somewhere else?

  • @Lincoln you planing to remove the V1 pluigns?

    grep is your friend.

  • LincLinc Director of Development Detroit Vanilla Staff

    @hgtonight Any made by the Vanilla staff are. Otherwise, it's up to the individual authors.

    @x00 Not immediately, but that is in the cards, yes.

    If we were to revise the addon repository, we'd have a hard look at powering it entirely off GitHub repos.

    Yea exactly. the plugin archive. It is good to keep them for the sake of studying them or to get an idea for something else.

    I think they serve as documentation that relates to the changes that have been made to Vanilla through time.

    It serves as an educational resource tool.

    I think only the plugins which do not work at all or cause severe problems should be deleted.

    its a mixed bag. studying on how to do things the wrong way, in some cases :)

    But I see your point.

    Sounds like studying from a 1973 chemistry book. Yeah, you'll learn some stuff... not all of it good.

  • hgtonighthgtonight ∞ · New Moderator

    I could see it as more inspirational than educational.

    That said, I support removing them from being easily accessible via the website (link to a git repo somewhere sounds like a fine idea).

    They had chemistry books in 1973 ?

    well maybe it's a personal thing that I went and looked at old plugins to see if I could adapt them and was successful with some with others no. It is more for inspirational like hgtonight says I suppose.
