And this is why compilers have WARN. The problem with a breaking change, is now I have to go back through my code and change it to be compiled under v8 - here is the rub - Particle is about moving to market quickly, very quickly, and this isn’t in line with that.
Developers, not the implementation framework, are responsible for security.
