Updated Patches released for v2.1.4 and v2.2.3

Please bear in mind we strongly recommend your installations be updated to a much newer version which contains many more fixes and new features. Having said that, these patches (v2.1.4patch8 and v2.2.3patch11) fix a security vulnerability with the database manager and pixidou editor.

This patch fixes several issues in the v2.3.7 release and v2.3.7 patch #1, patch#2, and patch#3.  It also provides several tweaks and even some new features, though the main focus is providing several regression fixes.  It should be noted that the new optional 'Upgrade permissions' upgrade scripts will attempt to lock down the site by fixing file and folder permissions (except for cgi-bin) which means also turning off the 'execute' permission.   It must be noted that this patch (like the previous patches to v2.3.7) will break any custom text module view templates using in-place editing.  Unlike previous patches, this patch file also includes all the 'installation' files in the event you secured your site by deleting or renaming the /install folder.
