XC seem happy to always be very, very lax, when maintaining current technical ability and security specifications for their paying customers

Good point well made, although... we have a still unresolved bug ticket, that was raised in September this year, which illustrates lots of vendor / 3rd party supplier packages used by XC5 that are hopelessly out of date and many of which have CVE-s raised against them... That's way beyond acceptable. So XC hiding behind 'waiting for other developers' is a huge ask / misdirection / excuse to justify NOT already being focused on ensuring XC5 fully supports PHP 8.0.

As has been stated previously, but has fallen on deaf ears, nobody wants more bumf / bling / garnish etc. What we really want, is a) XC5 to work 100% properly - consistently b) XC5 to be fully up to date (see previous) and c) The XC5 Service Area / Marketplace fiasco to be fully resolved. Then and only then should the people in charge at XC mention XC 5.N.N.N and all of its 'new features'
