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.
Whether Vanilla should come prepackaged with certain plugins for a price.
I believe that a version of Vanilla with certain essential plugins included, maintained, and developed by the Vanilla team would be worth money. It's better than a donate button, and real professionals are willing to pay for a good "turn key" forum. What do you guys think?
