I see that a new version of Firebase has been released. Will this affect how webhook sites work?

For others who wander in and see this, here is of what @aaron is speaking.
I do not believe it will adversely impact Webhook. I see no mention of API breaking changes in the announcement article.

Hello! I am running into an issue using the updated Firebase.
We're trying to get a self-hosted instance of Webhook going and are running into an issue.
After following the instructions, when we run
wh -f -s create www.yoursite.com
we're receiving the following error:
Projects created at console.firebase.google.com must use the new Firebase Authentication SDKs available from firebase.google.com/docs/auth/
Do you know how we could update the authentication method?
Thanks in advance.

Webhook does not support the new Firebase. Not only are there authentication changes needed to the codebase, there are also some deprecated functions.
The old Firebase will be supported for a long time.
If you are setting up self-hosted Webhook, you should create your Firebase using the legacy console, which you can login to by visiting firebase.com.

Unfortunately, new users can't access the legacy console.

Uh oh. Does this kill the ability to self-host?

It does not kill the ability to self-host. You can still find a Web API Key under the project settings. You can find it by clicking on the gear next to the
Overview button, and going to
Project settings. Use this as the firebase secret in the Gruntfile that is used for configuration in the webhook-server-open repository.

So, legacy firebase no longer supported in a month from now.
Anyone have any idea what to do at this point? The CMS nor the build tools will be able to connect to new Firebase auth.

They said in this post: http://forums.webhook.com/t/the-end-of-webhook-firebase-deprecation/1211/6 that this won't affect their system currently (unless he hears differently from Google, as he's put in another email just to make sure).
I have five sites that I'm going to have to start migrating off of this system, though... it's starting to get past a point since they're not updating the code any more.
