I want to allow generated captcha to be checked asynchronously without needing submit of whole page. This is a major complain since the beginning of SecurityImages, as currently users lost their entries in the form in case the captcha challenge get refused.
A lot more check are also done NOW in the Diagnostics page:
A new API inspired from recaptcha.net that will allow me to integrate new system in future without being limited to an image (why not having a flash or video in future?). This API fully use the Joomla! event system so less code to write for all 3rd party developers and less dependencies.
Only for SecurityImages 5.1.x and Joomla! 1.5.21
Allow login views, login modules, register, lost password, lost user account and contact section to be
protected by SecurityImages
User of Joomla! 1.5.20 with patch “Joomla_1.5.20-Stable-Full_PackageForSecurityImages5.1.x_v01.02.00.zip”
you can skip this update: no need to install since Joomla 1.5.21 did not change any of the files that are required for securityimages
Keep up to date with the Joomla! 1.5 patches RSS
Some people have reported issue in the forum
I've found the error in my code in some views but not all:
img src="/<?php echo JURI :: root() ?>/index.php?
as a result, there is in image URL a double / which cause issues on some web host (no image displayed)
I now provide a new patches versions for Joomla! 1.5.8 and 1.5.9 that can be downloaded:
These patches are ONLY for SecurityImages 5.1.0 or later, note the version of zip
instead of v01.00.00
We lost, Colin (http://espresso.ts.uvic.ca/ from Canada) and I nearly one week on securityimages....
The package was installing fine on windows powered machine, but refuse to install fully on Linux kernel. I made it work by simply removing all space character in the XML deployment descriptor of Joomla/Mambo. I will give me more time to find a better solution...
Project administrator at Mamboforge (Mambo CMS discontinued)
Project administrator at Joomlaforge (Joomla CMS):
I will commit as soon as possible the code there and do a version which can be downloaded.
(I opt for Joomla since Mambo developer have decided to stop Mambo development and continue with Joomla. I want to follow GPL convinced people :-) )
A big thanks to Colin for the time he invested in testing and support my bad english ;-)
The new version of com_securityimages is now working locally in my developer environment.
What's open before delivery...
This time I will test installation of component in my TEST and PROD Joomla environment...
Code already checked into CVS
Expect a release without sound support (depends if I have enough time) to beta tester at the end of the week end...
A captcha (an acronym for "completely automated public Turing test to tell computers and humans apart") is a type of challenge-response test used in computing to determine whether or not the user is human. The term was coined in 2000 by Luis von Ahn, Manuel Blum, and Nicholas J. Hopper of Carnegie Mellon University, and John Langford of IBM. A common type of captcha requires that the user type the letters of a distorted and/or obscured sequence of letters or digits that appears on the screen. Because the test is administered by a computer, in contrast to the standard Turing test that is administered by a human, a captcha is sometimes described as a reverse Turing test. From Wikipedia read more here and here
I am proud to announce You that security images is now multi CAPTCHA core enable!
You can now choose in the admin panel between the core engine (I develop) and Freecap (a very nice GPL engine from Howard Yeend)
Advantages: You can run multiple core engine, or from various provider (it took me more time to do the Jooma admin panel than integrate the code).
Code is already commited to CVS at Joomla
It wont be release before I finished the reload function and do some test. (below a screenshot of akocommentPlus)
-> I will need YOU soon dear beta tester :-)
The core component of JOOMLA: com_login and com_registration will soon be able to support my framework com_securityimages, here is a screenshot of an already running code. I've made change in com_securityimages in order to scale the resulting picture (which is in login 75% smaller than in normal case).
|This is an intermediate release before the new version 5.2.0 |
It solved the following major issues in version
BUG: logs table were not properly deleted after removing the component
BUG: securityimages was not installing at all in Joomla! 1.5.8 but properly in previous version.
The error has been found, it was my fault, I was incorrectly having 2 xml installer with the same name!
So it seems that Joomla! previous to 1.5.8 was searching or ordering zip file entries differently...
In previous versions (before 1.5.8), Joomla! found the file A, and install was a success, while in Joomla! 1.5.8 it just found file B and failed to install the main component part.
Now my solution has been to zip the system plugin in an additional zip file plugin.zip that will get unpacked at install time in /plugins/system/
I've tested the install with the following version of Joomla! 1.5.5, 1.5.6, 1.5.7 and 1.5.8
