Oh no, looking at the issues pavemen's script gives me, my forum will barely function.
I'll stay on 1.6.4.

I am curious as to why the solution to this issue is two different methods? Why not force all existing vars passed byref to simply be received byref? That way there is no need for the return function?

I'll stay on 1.6.0 until 2.0

That's a sure fine way to leave your forum open to hackers.

Well... my forum 1.5 age old (since I installed 1.6.0) and still no hackers.

Or just get your plugin authors to fix their plugins... the fixes are tiny Wink

Aye... And the short version is: Because originally we were going to totally remove the hooks_by_ref() function.

However, once the change was very far along, I discovered that we can't without breaking functionality. Thats when someone else (Stefan I think...) linked to some PHP documentation and I did the receiving by ref for the hooks_by_ref().
