Is there a security issue with using the older version of TweetDeck and what am I missing out on?

I like using the older version of TweetDeck for it’s features and hate using the newer version where many useful options were deprecated.

So I doubt, what is there any security vulnerability that some one had come across?

What about the features that there are in newer versions and not in TweetDeck’s older versions? I don’t think the newer version is as feature rich as the older version. Is there something that would make me want to use the newer version, even a security issue?

    Here is a list of all the things they added/changed. Doesn't look like they "fixed" anything. they only changed the interface and add features.

    # Full Facebook integration, with Comments, Likes and picture uploading
    # Facebook photo preview with slideshow functionality
    # Create columns for groups of Facebook friends
    # Facebook Pages support
    # MySpace integration, including status updates and setting Moods
    # Improved image uploading, now with drag and drop
    # Launch the TweetDeck Directory to add new and interesting people to your TweetDeck
    # Minimise to System Tray/Dock
    # Automatic shortening of URLs in the Update Window
    # Quickly view profiles & follow with Quick Profile button
    # Use TweetDeck with just a Facebook or MySpace account - no need for a Twitter account
    # Link your personal account to TweetDeck
    # Added TweetPhoto to list of photo sharing services (as the default for new users)
    # Quick add columns using your server-stored groups & searches
    # Improved account management screen
    # Improved handling of multi-account posting
    # Pressing Enter to send update is now optional

    So, it looks like there was no fix for security. so, it should be safe.
