Adminer is so refreshing after using phpMyAdmin, which seems to get slower and more bloated with every release. I was very impressed and plan to use Adminer and donate.
I find this all terribly misleading. The whole "Database management in a single php file" is kinda a gimmick, and really isn't a virtue. What's the harm in including all dependencies in the download? Is one file so much better than three files and a folder?
I hope you choose to take a more secure by default approach in the future with zero external dependencies.
Thank you for promptly addressing this issue.
