  • #844148: fixed call-time pass-by-reference problem in update function
  • various minor tweaks (syncing some stuff back from DRUPAL-7--1 branch)

Why is this release a RC (release candidate)?

This release includes the fix for an important bug (#810534: Fix CAPTCHA session reuse), which made it possible to reuse CAPTCHA sessions and lowered the barrier to entry for spam bots. The fix is a rather big change, including a database change, so do not forget to run the update.php script.
Because the change is rather big, I wanted to be sure the fix didn't break a lot of other things. In the first place, I provided simpletest coverage for the bug, albeit limited to the CAPTCHA protection of some Drupal core forms (login form, comment form and node form). However, I wanted also some manual testing on real world sites and use cases, but I got only one (positive) response in #810534: Fix CAPTCHA session reuse.

However, I wanted also some manual testing on real world sites and use cases, but I got only one (positive) response in #810534: Fix CAPTCHA session reuse.
To avoid that the lack of manual testing would block the commit of the fix, I decided to commit it and release the fixed version as a release candidate for 6-x.2.3. This way there is more real world testing, while still making it clear that the release could still have some issues. If you want stability and don't trust release candidate: stay at CAPTCHA 6.x-2.2. On the other hand, in terms of simple test coverage, CAPTCHA 6.x-2.3-RC1 could be considered more stable than CAPTCHA 6.x-2.2 as the coverage has increased.

    Release notes

    Yay, the times of Beta and RC releases are over, we have a 6.x-2.0 final release!
    It's been a long ride, mainly because I (soxofaan) am currently the only active maintainer and I only can do this in my sparsely distributed free time. If you are interested in deeper involvement with this module, feel free to contact me or jump right into the issue queue. Help is welcome on several levels (bug fixing, feature implementation, simpletest, translation, documentation writing, etc).

    For users coming from the CAPTCHA 6.x-1.x branch: don not forget to run the update.php script (example.com/update.php) on your setup because the CAPTCHA 6.x-2.x introduces an extra database table. Apart from that, upgrading should be painless and your settings should be kept. One note however: the "Text CAPTCHA" submodule (word choice challenge) was removed from the CAPTCHA 6.x-2.x branch (mainly because it kept back the maintenance of the CAPTCHA core module) and was moved and improved in the CAPTCHA pack module. So, if you used the text CAPTCHA and want to upgrade to CAPTCHA 6.x-2.x, it is recommended to disable and uninstall the text CAPTCHA module first before upgrading.

    Changes since DRUPAL-6--2-0-RC3:

    • Added watchdog logging of "unknown csid" problem for easier debugging.

    Release notes

    This release is intended to be the last release candidate before a final CAPTCHA 6.x-2.0 version.

    Feature-wise, the goals of CAPTCHA 6.x-2.0 are completed and there are no critical or outstanding bug reports left. However, I decided not to go for a final 6.x-2.0 version because of the following.
    This 6.x-2.0-RC3 release is the milestone where the CAPTCHA 6.x-2.x branch becomes the recommended branch for Drupal 6 and the 6.x-1.x branch becomes deprecated (it was already unmaintained for many moons). Switching the "recommendedness" on a release candidate is mainly to increase usage of the 6.x-2.x branch (which is now roughly at 5000) at the expense of the 6.x-1.x branch (which is now roughly at 22000), collecting more feedback and possibly work out some more kinks before the final CAPTCHA 6.x-2.0 version.

    Release notes

    First Beta of a rework of the CAPTCHA module, that does not require sessions for storing the challenge solutions, but uses a dedicated table instead.

    The use of sessions in the previous versions of the CAPTCHA module is responsible for a large volume of support requests in the issue queue, because of problems with sessions, "user 0", cookies, browser security levels, etc.
    Dropping the sessions requirement should eradicate this type of problems.
