[resolved] Dashboard Incoming Links, Plugins, and WordPress Blog all Deprecated (1 post)

    When I go in my Dashboard and expand either the "Incoming Links", "Plugins", or "WordPress Blog" drop-down menus, I get the same message over 100 times:

    Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /home/content/xx/xxxxxxx/html/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php.

    When I Google Simplepie, it reveals that it is a PHP component of the Atom Publishing Protocol, and Atom Feed Readers.

    I have had the Atom Publishing Protocol enabled for over 1 year, but don't remember why I need it. So, does anybody know?

    1.) Who updates SimplePie to the latest version? Me, or WordPress?

    2.) What will I miss if I disable the Atom Publishing Protocol?

    3.) I don't ever remember installing SimplePie or a related plugin, so where did it come from?

    4.) Is there a more current version of SimplePie for WordPress 3.3.2, OR will it be part of the upcoming WordPress 3.4?

    Does anybody have answers to any of the above questions?
