    That's because you're running an outdated version of PHP under PHP 5.3 please consider upgrading namly for security reasons.

    Users should have been warned that a routine update would require a PHP upgrade. This should have been noted in the update description. Stability and predictability are fundamental requirements for a production environment.

    Upgrading PHP may be advisable, but it is not a trivial procedure, particularly when it involves adjusting other dependencies, such as mod_security, memory, etc.

    I would rather discontinue using the plugin, rather than risking any more such surprises!

    You seem to have an advanced understanding of development while running older version of PHP which continues me to perplex.

    I think you're right but pretty radical. Moreover issue has been fixed so quickly ;)

    This is a free plugin, I've neglected PHP 5.2, my bad, everybody fails, I don't make mystakes twice ^^

    Anyway thanks for your comment and hope you'll find a better solution.
