Why this add-on(Rich Text Gadget) isn't formally supported?

Hello,

 

We are using Central ALU JIRA 6.3.4.

There was a Gadget before named "Text", it could display ant text and formatted as HTML, but now it's not available.

Now I find this one --> "Rich Text Gadget".

But this add-on isn't formally supported.

I need know the reason, and I'm very appreciated if somebody can provide an appropriate gadget.

 

Many thanks,

Meng

Allowing your users to create an arbitrary text that can accept anything is a big security risk. I can list out all the risks here but you can find them easily online.
