We are running vB4.1.12 with the basic comment box -- no issue with that.
4.1.12 is the last 4.1.x and 4.2.0 will be feature heavy.
Maybe its time to at least have a maintenance release of vB
Gallery and remove the dependency on the includes/functions_wysiwyg.php
I posted a warning about deleting this file here as there is a discussion about cleaning up deprecated files on vb
As for ckeditor support -- we can wait for that as long as vb
gallery continues to work.
