I'm just curious what's new or changed or fixed in the new version 3.1.16.

Is it possible to have a CHANGES.txt like file included in the loaders, so we can immediatly read what the changes are.

Thanks!

The change in 3.1.16 was a fix to do with inheriting from a builtin class (e.g. Exception) when the file was encoded with the PHP 4 Encoder but run on PHP 5. This situation occurs rarely, so the Loader update is not necessary unless you happen to be using PHP exceptions with the PHP 4 Encoder, or other inheriting from other builtin classes.

We'll consider adding a 'changelog'. Usually the Loader updates are minor, and if an update is important we generally put a notice on the Loader download page.

I see.

Our policy is to update the loaders in our product every time a new version becomes available, even if it addresses points not used in our product.

Thanks for the response!

This is a good and responsible approach. We'll be adding a mailing list soon as well so that you can join and be kept informed about Loader updates.

The Loader updates mailing list is now active. You can subscribe by sending an email to ioncube-loader-update-request@freelists.org with the subject line subscribe. The list is announcement only so you should not receive spam, and announcements will generally be infrequent.
