in the documentation it says that scaffolding is deprecated as of 1.6.

Quote:In computer software or authoring programs standards and documentation, the term deprecation is applied to software features that are superseded and should be avoided.

Although deprecated features remain in the current version, their use may raise warning messages recommending alternate practices, and deprecation may indicate that the feature will be removed in the future.

Probably because most people have access to systems such as phpMyAdmin which have the same functionality yet are much more feature rich. Also, it can cause severe security problems since it is easy to forget to disable scaffolding once you go live with your site, leaving you very exposed.

Though I guess a member of EllisLab has to give the final word on this one Wink
