I'm not waiting for them to fix them anymore. I was hoping to. They acknowledge it was their bug on their forums where it was reported, but they just did the 2018 release and it isn't fixed, so I'm currently working on it. I just didn't want it to further delay the mySQLi updates in DataBridge.
The issue does not only effect webassist extensions. It effects anyone connecting to databases or using bindings. I understand that maybe we are the only ones using the Dreamweaver API for this at this point, but they are bugs associated with standard API calls listed in their extending dreamewaver documentation.
Of course ultimately it is our responsibility to fix issues that exist. It is just hard to keep up with the things that they break that used to work and a bit frustrating, but I'm on it.
