We’ve released version 1.4.2 of RAMP.
This is a minor update to address a specific bug where backslashes were errantly removed from content during the RAMP process. Thanks to Bruce for alerting us to the problem.
This is a recommended upgrade for all customers. You can download the new version immediately from your Account page.
On a side note, this is a pretty common issue for WordPress developers who are programatically calling
wp_insert_post() and passing in data directly. For a long time this was a relatively unknown issue. You need to slash the data before passing it in. I tried really hard to get this behavior reverted, spending several weeks on patches to make the default to accept clean data. Unfortunately this approach was ultimately rejected.
