    This version of WordPress hasn’t really given me any issues except this one:

    I can't edit my themes or plugins since upgrading
    to 2.8. I get this error:
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function
    token_get_all() in
    on line 273
    I've tried going to wp-admin/update-core.php and
    force WordPress to reinstall itself, and the error
    still happens. I did a straight upgrade from 2.7.1 to 2.8.

    It turns out that WordPress is expecting the tokenizer be present, and it isn’t compiled in my host’s server. I can’t ask them to recompile PHP, because they have dozens of other websites hosted and none of them need this.

    What was the point of adding it? I only see it be used in the theme and plugin editors. I don’t understand why this feature is required, when it isn’t even mentioned in the documentation.

    Please make this feature optional. 🙁
