On the blogpost Wei Chein, member of Metasploit's development teams have made the decision of deprecating msfpayload and msfencode on th behalf of developer community. "we no longer support or accept patches for these two utilities" - he wrote.
msfvenom is the combination of msfpayload and msfencode, which were under the testing process for more than 3.5 years.msfpayload and msfencode have been in service to the hacking community for almost 10 years. It has been used by every security enthusiastic, and it is very much successful in every level and aspects, offensive or defensive. Since 2005, msfpayload and msfencode was improved, fixed and maintained by the open source security community.
From the Author Ends
Metasploit is mine too favorite framework and msfpayload and msfencode are among the common utility that I used and like. The end of the msfpayload and msfencode is also a bad news for me and hope for you also, but as community have announced its successor msfvenom, hope it also be as good as both.
