TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

Updating applications to current versions?

First off, let me say that I was thrilled when I found TKL years ago.  TKL has it made it so easy to setup new servers, try out software, and create my own appliances.  However, I have to add that TKL is becoming out-of-date.

For example, the Drupal appliance is still v6, even though v7 was released over a year ago.  The Joomla appliance is stuck on v1.5 and v1.6, even though Joomla support for v1.5 is ending this month and v1.6 is no longer supported in favor of v2.5 that was released months ago.  New Tracks has been out for almost a year.  Perl, which is basically embedded in the OS, is stuck at v5.10 and cannot be upgraded to the newer v5.12 or v5.14 found in newer OSs (yes, Perl can do a multi-version install, but that has its own problems).  Anyway, the point is that as these appliances become out-of-date, TKL is becoming less useful and even posing a security risk as the applications in its appliances are no longer supported.

Are there plans to update any applications to current versions?
