Yep! They're removing magic quotes thank heavens above and all that. The sooner we see the back of magic quotes the better, it's okay for beginners because it escapes all the data, but it's an undiluted bane for everybody else. We have to add an extra if statement block to check if magic quotes is active, and then act accordingly.
We shouldn't be treated like children! And to be fair, although beginners should definitely be fiddling with PHP, they really shouldn't be releasing applications which they expect to be 100% secure, and so if they're under that illusion, magic quotes isn't going to save them anyway so I say good riddance!
The man who comes back through the Door in the Wall will never be quite the same as the man who went out.
