Upgrade jQuery

Post by Ideas Bot » Mon Jul 30, 2018 11:52 am

phpBB 3.2 still uses jQuery 1.11.0 which has been released in 2014. It contains a number of security vulnerabilities: https://www.cvedetails.com/vulnerabilit ... query.html
and is less efficient performance-wise compared to the latest version.

I read that some of the phpBB's current code is incompatible with the new versions of jQuery, however if this project continues to move forward it will require to rework this code sooner or later. The longer it is delayed, the harder it will become to update it.

There has been talk on Area51 that jQuery may be dropped in favour of another framework

This is relevant for 3.2 as well, upgrade to jQuery Core 1.12.4 which is latest 1.x release.

Who thinks this is a smart move? To me it's like saying "Bush should be dropped in favour to Trump" - it won't solve anything.

It may be dropped for a new style which may be coming. Given that we're on two years already concerning talk of a new style I wouldn't hold my breath that it will be done in 5 years if at all.
